It's no secret that Monday Night RAW commentator Corey Graves isn't Cruiserweight Champion Enzo Amore's biggest fan, and it really shone through in a recent Twitter exchange between the two.
Amore started off his professional wrestling career after being discovered in a New Jersey gym by Triple H's trainer. Amore sent WWE a video of himself cutting a promo and working out and was soon signed to a developmental deal in NXT.
He would eventually be paired up with Big Cass and formed one of the most beloved tag teams in the brand's short history. Upon making their main roster debut on RAW, Enzo and Cass were immediately thrust into the RAW Tag Team Title scene, but were never able to win the titles.
They came their closest at WrestleMania 33 this past April in a Fatal Four-Way Ladder Match for the RAW Tag Team Titles, but lost out to the returning Hardy Boyz (Matt and Jeff Hardy) who shocked the WWE Universe with their unannounced return to "The Show Of Shows."
After failing to capture tag team gold, a storyline broke out in which both Amore and Cass were being attacked backstage, with the assailant being unable to be tracked down or identified. It was later discovered by Corey Graves that it was Cass all along who had been attacking Amore, and staged his own attack as well.
Following their split, Amore would go on to win the WWE Cruiserweight Title from Neville at No Mercy, his first title in his professional wrestling career. Yesterday (Sat. September 30, 2017) Graves took to Twitter to issue a rather funny Tweet, joking that he failed as a father after seeing his son mimic Amore's signature dance move after running to second base in his baseball game.
Amore would respond to Graves' Tweet soon after, and absolutely destroyed him in the process:
For those who don't know, Graves announced his retirement from in-ring competition after a string of issues from concussions. This makes some wonder if Amore's jab at him was a little too personal, and if there will be any backlash for it moving forward.
What are your thoughts on Amore ripping into Graves' failed history as a wrestler? Did he go a little too far with that remark? Or is it all in good fun and WWE fans shouldn't read too much into it?
