The Internet is all over the drama that has become the heat between WWE Legend Booker T and WWE announcer Corey Graves.
Not long ago, WWE removed Booker T from his role as a commentator on Raw for the returning Coach (Jonathan Coachman). Considering the poor job many fans believed Booker T was doing in the position, the move made sense. However, after being demoted, Booker T has used his own social outlets to rain down thundering criticisms toward Graves who Booker T holds personally responsible.
On Booker’s Heated Conversations podcast, he said of Graves, “If I got Corey Graves into a fist a cuff, I would beat him down like he stole something. I would be whipping his ass all day long. I’m a nice guy until you get on my bad side. Corey Graves right now, I wouldn’t necessarily say he’s on my bad side [but] he’s the reason that I’m not on Monday Night Raw right now.”
While fans don’t know what went on behind the scenes, if anything, fans have seen Graves not necessarily sit idly by and take the blame without responding.
“Thus the expert in battle moves the enemy, and is not moved by him.”
(Yes, this is what you think it is)

After Graves responded (not using Booker’s name specifically), Raw’s show on Monday had more than one moment where it looked like Superstars and the announce team took a shot at Booker’s comments. Then, on Tuesday’s SmackDown Live, New Day got in on the fun.
In more than one backstage segment, New Day was seen answering fan questions on Twitter. While the fan questions were revealed, the first answer was, “Do you think Corey Graves has a better jab or left hook?” Clearly, it was a shot at Graves having heat with Booker T.

Later in the broadcast, after Daniel Bryan revealed the Top Ten List as voted by SmackDown Superstars, New Day was once again shown in the back. They had just been named in the number six spot and all three were clearly upset by their placement. Big E said, “Sixth? That’s the percentage I would give Corey in a street fight!”
Something is going on between Booker T and Corey Graves and everyone knows it. Not only are people within WWE aware, they’re having fun with it. Where this leads for Booker T or others involved is uncertain but it’s an interesting blend of real life meets WWE Superstars having a little fun on live television.
