- NXT's Corey Graves recently appeared on the This is Awesome Wrestling Show, which is hosted by Glenn Moore and Steve Guy and based in Cleveland, Ohio. During the show, Graves discussed the transition he's made from the ring to commentary full-time.

"It's a tough transition," Graves admitted. "It's still the business that I love. I think that's the important part. I'd be lying to you if I said I didn't watch some of these shows, especially like last night in Columbus, where you see these people absolutely on fire for the stars. I don't think jealous is the word, but I miss it. I definitely miss the feeling of being in the ring.

"That said, the transition has opened so many new opportunities to me and different aspects of the business that I never really explored about. It's really cool to see all these different moving parts of WWE. If I didn't have a good support team around me between the coaches, the guys at NXT, and my friends on the main roster checking in on meI went through a dark time, it was hard. But this is the business that I love and this is the only thing I know. It was unfortunate, but it is what it is. And I think I kind of embraced this new role. I had no choice; just jump in with both feet. So, I'm still constantly learning, but I'm still here, so that's the exciting part."

Graves also talked about dealing with his injury, broadcasting experience, having the independent wrestling connection with fans and the all-star roster of NXT. You can check out the full show by clicking here, the Graves interview starts at 31:39.
