A recent Twitter exchange between former WWE writer Vince Russo and current commentator Corey Graves has been causing a lot of buzz recently. Russo posted the following message, calling out Graves for “not being interested” in the match between Jason Jordan and Braun Strowman on “Raw” this past week:
Guess announcers aren't that excited about Jordan/Strowman. Total, total NO SELL. Hey, Corey—Pee Wee Herman called–he wants his suit back. #TOOL

Graves was quick to fire back, calling out Russo’s insulting techniques as well as his religious views:
Wow. It’s amazing that the “driving force” behind the Attitude Era relies on the same insults as my 9-year old.
Just shout me out for giving your podcast some traffic. You’re a great Christian. https://t.co/RM3inVsSEB

Don't think ol' Corey really understands—no—it wasn't an insult at all—Pee Wee Herman REALLY DID where the same suit 30 years ago. Look this up too—NOBODY is a "Great" Christian–that's why we ALL need God in our lives.

You can see a clip from the match below:
At the end of the match, Kane assaulted Strowman, after being driven through the ring on last week’s show.
I love Corey Graves. Besides Mauro Ranallo, he is my favorite commentator in wrestling, and has brought a unique sense of wit and intensity to the commentating position. That’s probably the reason that he is on both “Raw” and “Smackdown Live” each week!
As far as Russo goes, I cannot stand him. He constantly tries to bring back the magic of the past, and does it unsuccessfully. Give it up, dude.
