Corey Graves Takes a Shot at Dave Meltzer on Smackdown Live

Corey Graves Takes a Shot at Dave Meltzer on Smackdown Live

Dave Meltzer recently found himself on the receiving end of considerable Twitter heat for comments he made about Peyton Royce’s appearance.

Meltzer is not out of the woods yet, as this Tuesday’s episode of Smackdown Live proved. As the IIconics made their way to the ring for Royce’s match with former Women’s Champion Naomi, Corey Graves made this comment:

“I’ve followed the IIconics both Peyton Royce and Billie Kay since they were in NXT and trust me they both have never looked better”

The comment is clearly a jab at Meltzer, who on the August 9th episode of Wrestling Observer Radio said that he thought Royce was more attractive and “a lot lighter” when she was on NXT.

Twitter user named Danny (@dajosc11) took a clip of the podcast and posted it. It was soon replied to by Royce.

 Several more WWE stars took to Twitter to support Royce.

The Wrestling Observer Newsletter founder offered an apology on Twitter, but his tweet may have made things worse after he again commented on Peyton’s appearance.

His second apology was better-received than his first.
