Corey Graves can be heard every Monday and Tuesday night, working the commentary booths for both Raw and Smackdown. The Savior of Misbehavior is a favorite of the WWE Universe, bringing a bit more punch to the table than his cohorts.
Most of the commentary teams are criticized for their bland deliveries and repeat basic catchphrases. However, Graves’ biting remarks and sarcastic comments have been a breath of fresh air. However, when it comes to whether he’s a face or a heel, Graves doesn’t want to be considered as one or the other.
Graves discussed the debate on the Sam Roberts Wrestling Podcast.
I side with a lot of heel mentalities. I can justify it because I generally was a heel as a wrestler, so I can justify just about anything. A lot of times it’s outrageous and ridiculous, which is why I love to say it.
It’s funny for me to be able to give a backhanded justification for something that was clearly messed up and out of line. That was just entertaining myself. I’m not the ‘bad guy’ commentator. That is passe.
In his most recent visit on Sam Roberts’ podcast, he also discusses his adjustment to commentary, the amount of work he puts in throughout the year, and if his kids are into wrestling. You can check out the video here.
