WWE News: Enzo Amore trolls Corey Graves over 'failed father' comments
What’s the story?
Enzo Amore has taken to social media to fire back at Corey Graves, in response to the latter’s post where he called himself a ‘failed father’ after Graves’ son broke out into a jig like Amore.
Apparently, Amore got wind of Graves’ aforementioned Tweet, following which the Certified G trolled the RAW commentator and retired pro-wrestler over his inability to compete in the sport:
In case you didn’t know…
Enzo Amore has been widely criticized by professional wrestling fans and pundits over what many feel are underdeveloped wrestling skills. Nevertheless, the 30-year-old has now been booked as the WWE Cruiserweight Champion by the promotion.
On the other hand, Corey Graves competed in the sport from 2000 and hanged up the boots in ’14, owing to concussion issues.
The heart of the matter
Corey Graves was recently at a game with his son when the child ran to second base and proceeded to celebrate by breaking into an impromptu dance sequence inspired by Enzo Amore.
Speaking of which, Graves would then jest and insinuate on Twitter that he had, in fact, failed as a father, since his son seemed to be learning from someone like Amore.
Regardless, Amore seemed to be in no mood to take Graves’ comments lying down. In fact, the Bona Fide Stud threw a rather stinging jab, asserting that Graves had failed as a wrestler, referencing the fact that the Pittsburgh native had to retire because of concussion issues.
Enzo Amore is presently the WWE Cruiserweight Champion and competes on the RAW and 205 Live brands. Corey Graves serves as a colour commentator for the WWE.
Let’s get one thing clear, Amore and Graves don’t have a legitimate beef with one another, but seem to be maintaining kayfabe; given that both portray characters on WWE TV programming that hate one another.
For that, I tip my hat to both performers. Old school professional wrestling veterans such as Jim Cornette and Vince McMahon would be proud of this display of psychology.
