Migs Blog: Corey Graves Rules!

April 6, 2017

In yesterday’s blog I shared my interview that my bud AJ Francis and I did with Samoa Joe at Wrestlemania in Orlando.  Today I wanted to share with you another one of my favorite interviews that we did.

We had a chance to chat with Corey Graves, who is one of the commentators for Monday Night Raw.  Corey is one of my all time favorite WWE announcers…and he just started!  He brings a whole new vibe to the announce table, reminiscent of guys like Jesse “The Body” Ventura, and Bobby “The Brain” Heenan.  He plays a great bad guy on the microphone, while being super entertaining with his sarcastic remarks.

Corey was one of my favorite wrestlers in NXT… but due to concussions, “The Savior Of Misbehavior” had to cut his career short, and the WWE saw something in his personality and offered him a job on the NXT broadcast team.  Corey helped make NXT as popular as it has become.  Sure, you need great in ring performers…but you also need great announcers to help tell the story....and Corey (along with Todd Phillips) did just that!

Here is our chat with Corey…as you will see; he is as down to earth and entertaining as they come!

In addition to chatting with Corey (and Samoa Joe) at Wrestlemania…We also spoke with DIY (Tommaso Ciampa & Johnny Gargano), Renee Young, Nikki Bella, Charlotte Flair, Carmella, The Miz and Maryse…and you can hear all of these interviews on a special Wrestlemania edition of The Migs Cast.  Check them out HERE!

Big thanks to my brother, Jim Perry from Defy Wrestling, for taking the pix and video!

Speaking of Defy Wrestling…be sure to join us tomorrow night at Washington Hall for a night of great indie wrestling.  I am the ring announcer and host for Defy, so I hope to see you there!  Get more info and tickets HERE.
