Possible reason why Corey Graves was not punished by WWE regarding Mauro Ranallo tweet

Corey Graves criticized Mauro Ranallo’s work during NXT TakeOver: WarGames, which led to Ranallo deactivating his Twitter. He was scheduled to call the NXT title match at Survivor Series with Graves, but he did not stay for the match. Ranallo also did not work the next episode of NXT as well.

Fans believed Corey Graves should have been punished for what he did. Mike Johnson on PW Insider Elite audio said that he was told Corey Graves would not be punished. This is due to the fact that Vince McMahon loves Corey Graves.

Thankfully, Mauro Ranallo did return to NXT this week and he received a standing ovation. Hopefully, incidents such as this do not happen again.

    Preach on …

  • Wayne Lynch

    And periods go inside quotation marks.

    Then I suggest the he retire. And lock his soft ass away in a tower so he never has to hear another triggering event.

    Grow up you insensitive moron. When you have bi-polar and depression you do not have control over your feelings, and you certainly don’t have any control out of what triggers you.

  • Most things online are overblown. But that doesn’t change the fact that he totally did single Mauro out. Everyone knew exactly who he was talking about/to.

  • JAckh45

    Graves didnt even single out Mauro… he just said there are other people on the announce team.
    Plus its Graves personality, he does this type of thing to everyone. And trust me… I can’t stand Graves, think hes trash, but this was so overblown.

  • Soulshroude

    Damn you, CC… Damn YOU!!! HA!!!

  • Solomon Black

    Duly noted. And edited. But you got the point.

  • Solomon Black

    Yes. Every time he hears something that offends his delicate nature. He runs and sticks his head in the sand. And every one has to hear how fragile he is. How he has issues. Then a standing O, just for showing up to work. Give me a fucking break.

  • CC

    Always hiding behind his illness? Are you for real?
    No wonder people have mental health problems that end up in suicide when there are caring people like you around.

    I know Mauro has problems but I really do not think what Graves did was that bad in the big scheme of things. We have seen wrestlers etc say much worse things over time on Twitter, and do not think he intentionally meant to cause any issues. I think what people have to remember is sometimes it is easy to forget you have to pull your punches and walk on egg shells with certain people, and you just say the same things you would say to anyone else.

    If anything the only really crappy thing he did was refuse to appologise until he was obviously made to do so.

    I am sorry I have to do this, but it is just in my nature … “you’re going to quote”

    ha ha

  • Soulshroude

    The expression is “suck it UP, buttercup”. If your going to quote something, at least get the quote right.

  • Soulshroude

    Dirt sheets have real grammar issues. It’s not “as well” for the last line of the sentence, it’s: “Either”. Write in proper English structure, or don’t write.

  • Solomon Black

    Exactly. I dont like Graves. But in this instance he really didnt do anything. Ranallo just got a case of the feels and took his ball and went home. Dube is way too damn sensitive. Always hiding behind his “illness”. I suggest he take another job somewhere where criticism isnt going to be a problem.

  • lobsterball

    Wait… why should Corey be punished? Unless the policy is talent/employees are not permitted to be critical or comment on each other’s work then why should he be punished? Re-read the tweet. What part of that warrants punishment? He said you wouldn’t realize there’s a champ and HOF’er on commentary tonight. Unless they’re not allowed to comment on each other I don’t see why he should be punished other than to make people feel better and for all the brave people on the internet to feel fulfilled.

  • Solomon Black

    Or, and hear me out here. Vince said, suck it buttercup! What was said is most definitely less harsh than a Vince criticism. Im tired of hearing how Ranallo has mental issues. Then go call something else. He isnt that good to me.

  • Wicka Steve

    As if the disaster that is creative isn’t enough proof that vince is the problem, and the sooner he drops dead the better, you have this.

  • F. Loyd B. Pippin

    Corey does come across as a brownnoser in real life. Not surprising at all.

  • Rinn13

    One real life a$$hole loves and gives preferential treatment to another? Vince McMahon doing stuff like THAT?

    Nah. Couldn’t be. Has never happened before. Especially not in the 90s.
