If you were watching WWE 205 Live Tuesday night then things may have got just a tad awkward.
Corey Graves and Tom Phillips serve as the commentators over on the WWE Network for Cruiserweight action and actually are quite a nice pair together. At one point in the program yesterday, however, Phillips paid for a snide comment towards an in-ring competitor from Graves.
You might have already heard that earlier this year Phillips was involved in an Instagram DM'ing scandal, and it came back to bite him in the rear-end on live TV.
The scandal occurred back in February when a fan shared a screenshot on Twitter of a conversation between her and Phillips in which he said "I'm in my seat with a massive erection. And a 4 hours flight ahead. I'm going to face f--k the s--t out of you."
During the Noam Dar vs. Rich Swann bout on 205 Live, Phillips called Dar a “Euro-trash pervert” , to which Grave responded with the following (quotes via Kings Of Kayfabe):
"It is not like Dar was sending DMs on Instagram to people that he shouldn't have been. There is nothing embarrassing about what he has done.” Phillips then accused Dar of being a terrible boyfriend to Alicia Fox, to which Phillips responded with, "It is a lot longer flight than four hours for Dar."

You can listen to Graves comments in the videos below. Phillips and Graves can be seen and heard laughing afterward:
Ribbing at its finest ladies and gentleman. The WWE is no stranger to getting personal matter involved on TV. One recent example would be a short reference to Paige's leaked sex tapes by The New Day on a vignette.
Also, when WWE Hall Of Famer Lita was found out to be having an affair with fellow Hall Of Famer Edge while she was in a relationship with Matt Hardy, the WWE decided to spin that into a major storyline.
Matt and Edge would battle it out in the ring and you can rest assured that a few potatoes were thrown in the midst of those matches. It made for great TV and incorporated a rare bit of reality into a storyline.
Graves' rib on Phillips, however, was pure genius in its own right. How do you feel about Graves comments? Did he go a little too far or was it all in good fun?
