Becky Lynch has a new social media target and this one is likely to come without a big payoff.
Corey Graves, who works as a WWE commentator on both Raw and SmackDown, took a shot at Lynch recently on commentary by saying she's spending too much time on social media. Lynch has earned universal praise for her Twitter game as she's fired shots at Ronda Rousey, Charlotte Flair, Nia Jax, Seth Rollins and more. Upon hearing the comments by Graves, Lynch added him to her list of victims.
So Graves has been saying I’m too cocky, and I talk too much on social media - like that’s a bad thing. I drum up more interest in 1 tweet than you do with 5 hours of your Heenan-lite routine every week. Listen, I’m here to make history, you’re just here to observe me do it. pic.twitter.com/Iddsuw3ArY— The Man (@BeckyLynchWWE) December 12, 2018
Never one to back down from a verbal sparring contest, Graves hit back.
I’ll admit it. It’s tough to go FULL-Heenan when the boss is actually paying attention to your work. You’ll realize that someday. --@BeckyLynchWWE https://t.co/8nyd5BzkB5— The Woman (@WWEGraves) December 12, 2018
Graves also changed his Twitter name to "The Woman" in reference to Lynch calling herself "The Man." Graves was forced to retire in 2014 due to concussion-related injuries.
He will be on hand to call WWE TLC this weekend, which features Becky Lynch defending her SmackDown Women's Title against Asuka and Charlotte Flair in a Tables, Ladders and Chairs bout.
