On the latest edition of the 'After The Bell' podcast Corey Graves apologized for comments he made toward WWE NXT announcer Mauro Ranallo over the weekend.
Graves caused a storm on Twitter when he tweeted that Ranallo didn’t allow fellow commentators Beth Phoenix or Nigel McGuinness to talk during the TakeOver: WarGames III event. He also tweeted that Ranallo made "far, far too many" Chicago rap references.
He said opening After The Bell:
"On a personal note, I need 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. 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 any undue stress, especially a co-worker. So, I apologize."
