5 Things you didn't know about Corey Graves
For a man who went by the nickname of 'The Saviour of Misbehaviour', Corey Graves is currently in an ironic predicament. In case you didn't know, the pro wrestling world has been taken by storm by the revelations of his infidelity as his wife Amy Polinksi has claimed that the WWE commentator allegedly cheated on her with Carmella.
Now we at Sportskeeda try our best to stay away from stories that have personal and emotional implications and thus, have decided to not cover the developing news and its innumerable angles.
Graves is a true veteran of the sport of entertainment as he has been involved with the pro wrestling industry for 18 years. He started training to become a pro wrestler at the age of 14 and didn't care for the fact that he wasn't legally allowed to do so until he turned 16.
So, before you go on to slander Graves, you must know the man and his history of trails and tribulations. Here are five things you need to know about the former NXT Superstar...
#1 Holds victories against some of the most popular Superstars
The WWE Universe may know Graves as one of the best heel commentators around but ask any indie faithful and they would tell you about the legends of 'Sterling James Kennan', which was his original name from his time before the WWE.
Inspired from Maynard James Kennan from the band Tool and American Football player Sterling Sharpe, Graves wrestled for unnumerable small-time promotions before he signed on the dotted line of a WWE contract in 2011. And during this time, SJK worked with stars who would become household names in the years to come. CM Punk, AJ Styles, Neville, Samoa Joe, Cesaro, Rikishi, Raven; the list of well-established names Graves has faced in his pre-WWE chapter is endless.
You don't win matches on your first day on the job unless you are an incredibly hyped talent and Graves was no different. He won some and on many occasions, had to make his opponent look good. Nonetheless, his resume does boast of a few eye-catching victories.
He has wins over Punk, Samoa Joe, Rikishi, Abyss, Al Snow, and Johnny Gargano, to name a few. Graves has slogged as hard as any of the indie darlings that have made it big in the major leagues.
