Raw commentator Corey Graves has suggested a major inter-brand matchup for this year’s Survivor Series.
Speaking with Wrestling Inc’s Nick Hausman, the WWE announcer talked about commentating for the company, Pat McAfee’s Pittsburgh accent that he had to unlearn himself being from Pittsburgh and a potential matchup with the former NFL star.
In regards to his teases of the possibility of facing McAfee, Corey said:
“Not to my knowledge was it ever discussed with any sense of legitimacy. But you’ve got to remember, there’s only one night a year Raw and SmackDown competes in head-to-head competition, Survivor Series. I hope, I am going to start politicking now,” he said on a possible match. “I think McAfee and Graves at Survivor Series, I think we have to pass the bar that was set by Cole and Lawler at WrestleMania.”
Graves also took some time to praise Pat McAfee for his work so far, saying:
“As over the top as Pat is, he loves this, that’s why Pat’s here. Pat doesn’t need the money, Pat doesn’t need the exposure, he is wildly successful on his own. Pat loves WWE, so more power to him the fact that he’s living his dream I think is very cool.”
As previously mentioned, Corey Graves has confirmed that he has been cleared for a potential in-ring return in recent months.
Pat McAfee made his main roster in-ring debut at WrestleMania 38 in a victory over Austin Theory and a loss to WWE Chairman Vince McMahon.
