Corey Graves has been a very hot topic over the last few days after he took shots at Mauro Ranallo’s commentary at NXT TakeOver: War Games when he posted the following on Twitter:

Pro Wrestling Sheet is reporting that Corey Graves posted the tweets as a way to play into the brand warfare heading into Survivor Series on Sunday.

Graves reportedly planned to bring the tweets up in a joking manner when he was joined by Mauro Ranallo at the commentary table the next day.

As noted, Mauro Ranallo will not be calling the action on NXT tonight, and Corey Graves issued an apology when he said the following on the After The Bell podcast:

“On a personal note, I needed to address something. This past Saturday, during the ‘Takeover: WarGames’ event, I sent out a tweet. It was an unpopular opinion, as I often do with the intention of just stirring up a little controversy, maybe have something fun to talk about on TV or here on the show. It was maybe not the most professional way to go about things, and it was never meant to offend or disrespect or disparage anybody. That was never my intention. If it was taken as such, I apologize deeply. That was not my intention. I would never intentionally cause anybody undue stress, especially a co-worker. So, I apologize.”
