Corey Graves Talks Training Under Bill DeMott


WWE commentator Corey Graves is always an entertaining Twitter follow. He recently responded to several comments about former WWE developmental coach Bill DeMott. DeMott was let go by the company in 2015 after allegations of misconduct came to light. Graves said the following:

“I’m not really old enough to claim “back in my day,” but what I remember as “coaching” or “motivation” is now considered “bullying.” I turned out just fine. And my kids are probably tougher than yours. Can you please pass the blue crayon for these adult coloring books?”


One fan triggered a response to graves with the following comments:

“In a company that once had Bill DeMott as a head trainer who seemed to think pretty highly of his motivation skills, perhaps this isn’t the best hill to die on? That twitter break you were gonna do might have done some good, man.”

“I still stand by . We weren’t always best friends, but there was no malice whatsoever. It wasn’t until people started complaining that getting PAID TO TRAIN was too hard for them, that it became an issue.”

“What’s the point you’re trying to argue? He was my head coach. I did what he said. I personally believe I ended up better for it. Still trying to figure out why you’re mad at a guy you’ve never met…”
