Booker T and Corey Graves Heat Said to be a Work

Posted By James Walsh on 02/07/18


As one might expect, the reported “heat” between Booker T and Corey Graves isn’t what it appears to be. There’s been a fair bit of speculation around apparent issues between the two after the WWE Hall of Famer said on his podcast that Graves was responsible for his being taken off the Raw commentary team and detailed his dislike of Graves. That was followed by Graves taking a shot at Booker on Raw this week, when he told Jonathan Coachman, “Watch your tongue or you might be doing afternoon radio locally.”

Well, it’s all a work according to Sports Illustrated. The outlet cites sources close to WWE who have confirmed that Booker did the podcast specifically to give Graves some extra heel heat on his way out of Raw commentary spot.

The site notes that with Booker campaigning for the Houston mayoral spot next year, if a candidate asks why Booker threatened harm upon graves by saying, “If I catch Corey Graves on the street, I’m gonna do something to him” then Booker can reference the fact that it is a work.
