WWE News: Corey Graves Clarifies Recent Tweets About CM Punk

Published

on

There was a lot of “hub-bub” started last night by WWE Monday Night RAW and SmackDown Live color commentator Corey Graves, as Corey took a shot at CM Punk following Punk’s loss at UFC 225:

Graves of course started taking heat from fans due to this tweet, but did not hold back in responding:

Corey has now spoken with Sean Sapp of Fightful and further clarified his CM Punk comments. Reportedly, Punk offered “ultimatums” to his friends still employed by WWE that they had to either leave the company or lose him as a friend. Graves stated:

“Well, to be honest, I’d never heard or been given that ultimatum. It kinda shocked me when I texted him about grabbing dinner because we were in Chicago and he told me he no longer had any interest in being friends with me or anybody related to WWE.

I respected his drive, and him doing his own thing. He sent me the text shortly before his first fight. Part of me just thought he was in a zone and I didn’t take offense. I texted him the day of his FIRST fight something along the lines of “I know life is nuts, I still love you good luck” Probably not verbatim, but you get the idea.

What really set me off was this week when he essentially disowned the business that made him My only issue with him was that he turned off people that actually loved and supported him. Beyond “the business” and he never wanted anything to do with us…yet continued to present himself as this “Punk” hero.”

EA’s Take: I’m with you Corey, I think CM Punk has all of his “fans” brainwashed in a sense. This was actually discussed today on Top Of The Morning Podcast Live (which you can check out here) and I am not surprised by it. Hornswoggle has also publicly talked about losing his friendship with Punk, all because he asked for a mutual friends phone number. The guy needs a psychiatrist, he can’t trust anybody and to be brutally honest, I wouldn’t be surprised if it affects his marriage some day. Or perhaps crazy just understand crazy.
