Corey Graves is currently working as a WWE Commentator and he spoke about wanting to return to the ring. Corey Graves is a former WWE wrestler. He had to retire after he suffered multiple injuries. However, Triple H believed in his looks and charisma and asked him to start commentating.
Corey recently revealed on The Illuminerdi that he has been cleared to wrestle. He is a former WWE NXT Tag Team Champion and his last match inside a WWE ring took place in 2014.
Corey Graves States That He Medically Clear to Compete
“I have no immediate goals to accomplish,” Graves said.
“I’ve accomplished so much in this role as a commentator, which is a role I never in a million years expected to have in the first place, so now I feel like I’ve got the commentary thing down, now what else can I do? I’m constantly behind the scenes trying to learn and learn the business side of the wrestling business and I always want to have irons in different fires, just because I feel like when I get complacent, I get bored.
“I just keep thinking to myself that is the one thing that I was right there. I was right at the peak, and I fell down the mountain, and now it’s like, wait, I can get medically cleared. Maybe get myself back into shape, which has been the hardest part, because I really enjoy sitting at ringside!
It’s just always that ‘what if,’ and this is a ‘what if’ that I think I can potentially answer, instead of having to wonder forever, ‘what if?’ So it may happen six months from now, it may happen next year, it may not happen at all, but I’m just trying to get myself physically and mentally into the best shape possible for whatever the world may have waiting for me”.
He openly stated in a previous interview that he never had an official WWE match as his career was cut short due to his injuries. He believe he should have worked hard to protect himself from injury. “Slow down,” Corey Graves said.
“I would’ve taken a little bit better care of myself. I felt like I was invincible … I was so driven and goal-oriented, and I had blinders on, and the only thing I could focus on was making it to WWE, and I was right there.
And I think in hindsight if I had slowed down a little bit, taken a little bit better care of myself physically and mentally, maybe I wouldn’t have hit that roadblock when I did … I think a little bit older, wiser version of me, I would just tell myself to slow down and take it easy because as we can see, I eventually got here in some capacity”.
