COREY GRAVES: Corey Graves cleared to resume in-ring career after seven years


Posted on 1/13/122 by Colin Vassallo



WWE Raw announcer Corey Graves has been cleared to wrestle
after seven long years according to Sean Ross Sapp of
Fightful. Sapp broke the news on his Fightful Select website
today.

The 37-year-old Graves signed with WWE in 2011 and was part
of FCW and the early days of NXT until he suffered multiple
concussions which put on the brakes on his in-ring wrestling
career. His struggles and eventual alternate job offer as a
commentator were featured as part of the WWE Breaking Ground
documentary series on the WWE Network. He is a former NXT
Tag Team champion with Adrian Neville, who now goes by the
name of PAC.

Graves announced his in-ring retirement during the NXT
Takeover: R Evolution pre-show in December 2014 and joined
the NXT commentary team. In 2016 he moved to the main roster
where he served as commentator for Monday Night Raw and
later Smackdown as well.

He made his in-ring debut in March 2000 and wrestled on the
independent circuit for nine years before being scooped up
by WWE and has a win against AJ Styles and Cesaro from their
indie days.
