CM Punk: Corey Graves sheds light on CM Punk mentoring him early in his WWE career. The Savior of Misbehavior also spoke about how he is still compared to the Straight Edge Superstar.
WWE Color commentator Corey Graves recently appeared on Chasing Glory With Lilian Garcia. In the interview he spoke about his wrestling past, his concussions that cut short his in ring career and his relationship with CM Punk.
On comparisons with CM Punk, this is what Corey had to say:
“I get that a lot,[Punk] and I, up until semi-recently, were always close friends. He actually held my first-born kid before I did. I was in Spain. I knew my son was going to be born, and it became, ‘okay, do I take this tour of Spain to support my child or am I actually going to be in Pittsburgh [Pennsylvania] for him to be born.Punk was actually in town getting surgery of some sort. He buzzed me and asked if I minded if he goes and see [my] kid? So, he and I were super tight. I had learned a lot from him, and different paths happened, and different career choices are made.
“He and I don’t speak with each other anymore, but I never take that as an insult when they say that they see a lot of him in me because he helped me out a lot early in my career.”
