#2 Was a jobber in the WWE between 2006-2007

These days, talented prospects are treated as jobbers by the WWE but that wasn't always the case. Back in the day, WWE used to use local wrestlers as enhancement talents to make one of any of their bigger stars look strong. These local wrestlers often included indie workers from the little-known promotions of the area WWE visited. AJ Styles, Daniel Bryan, and Samoa Joe were all treated as fodder for the bigger stars and Graves too was one of them.

Believe it or not, Graves teamed up with his supposed doppelganger CM Punk in a dark match for SmackDown against The Gymini.

In one of the squash matches against the team of Jamie Noble and Kid Cash, Graves had the audacity to kick out at one. He got a sound beating for his gutsiness as he lost the match along with his tag team partner Jon Bolen.

He would subsequently get destroyed by Mark Henry and Val Venis on the episodes of WWE Heat and SmackDown respectively, before returning to WWE as a contracted talent years later.
