Corey Graves Wants To Wrestle Seth Rollins, Recalls Being Poised For A Main Roster Debut

Corey Graves wants the chance to mix it up one more time with Seth Rollins.

Corey Graves’ WWE career inside the squared circle was cut short due to medical protocol right before it was just about to take off. Right before the end of 2014 when he was added onto the NXT commentary team, Corey Graves was regularly traveling with the main roster of WWE and appeared to be poised to be called up to the main roster, before it all came to an end.

Speaking on 100.7 Star, Corey Graves revealed that there were no concrete plans for him to be called up to the main roster at the time but everything appeared to be heading in that direction.

“To my knowledge, there were no concrete plans, there was no certain way that they were going to use me or introduce me. But it seemed as though it was coming pretty — something was happening. Since then, I focused all my energy on becoming a commentator, because this is something I never experienced before. Never in a million years thought I would do. So, too, it gave me something new to focus on. I went all-in on the commentary gig for several years and now I got to the point where, ‘Alright, I've called WrestleMania. I've called all the biggest matches, I've been all over, I've done everything.’ I just kind of felt like I plateaued a little bit and I got bored,” Corey Graves said about deciding he wanted to see about being medically cleared for in-ring action again.

Corey Graves is cleared and has been cleared since just after last year's WrestleMania. Now, asked about who he would like to wrestle, Corey Graves named Seth Rollins as someone he wants another chance to step in the ring with again. Corey Graves and Seth Rollins did have a match on NXT TV back before the days of the WWE Network.

“I would say right now, Seth Rollins. Rollins, just because he’s a guy that I always had great chemistry with in the ring in NXT, but he has just continued to get better, and better, and better, and is doing some of the best work of his career right now. While he may not be WWE Champion, what he brings every night in this new persona with the dancing, he’s so obnoxious, and he gets under everybody’s skin. I love what Rollins is doing. I would love to mix it up with him one more time,” said Graves.
