Corey Graves isn't coming out of retirement any time soon, but he did admit that he thought about it while watching the WWE 24 special on Edge.
During a recent episode of "After The Bell," Graves, who had Edge as his guest, said there were a couple of instances he felt inspired seeing Edge work his way back to becoming medically cleared. Graves thought to himself that since he lives in Pittsburgh, where Dr. Joseph Maroon, the head of WWE Medical, is also located, he should maybe visit him and see if there's any possibility of an in-ring return.
“Watching it honestly, it was inspiring. At two or three different points, I went like, ‘Man, I live in Pittsburgh now. I should go find Dr. Maroon.’ It just gave me that urge to do it all over again, but I don’t know if that’s possible. The thought was planted in my brain for quite some time," Graves said.
Graves last wrestled in April 2014 and after his in-ring career was over due to issues stemming from multiple concussions, he transitioned into becoming a broadcaster. Graves started out in NXT before making his way up working on Raw and SmackDown. Graves, who currently works as a broadcaster on SmackDown alongside Michael Cole, has also hosted shows on WWE's digital platforms before becoming the host of "After The Bell."
As for Edge's return, he was successful in defeating Randy Orton in a Last Man Standing match at WrestleMania 36, his first singles match with WWE since April 2011. You can check out Edge's comments on the match from Graves' podcast at this link.
