Corey Graves has boldly claimed that one particular Raw Superstar is the best wrestler in the world today.
As part of the commentary team on Monday Night Raw, Corey Graves has a front row seat to watch many of WWE’s finest in action.
It’s this perspective that has led Graves to claim that one Raw star is not only the best on Monday nights, or even WWE, but the best on the planet right now.
Speaking on After The Bell, Graves heaped praise on Seth Rollins, commenting that he believes in his soul that the former World Champion is the best around.
“For my money, as a fan of this business, in my not quite humble opinion, Seth Freakin’ Rollins is the best sports entertainer, professional wrestler, superstar, whatever label you wanna put on him, on earth,” Graves said. “Not just in WWE, not in America, in the world. I believe that in my soul.”
Rollins is coming off the back of a high-profile feud with Cody Rhodes which saw him lose all three of the matches in the trilogy. For the former NXT star this only proves his point even further, that despite the losses, Rollins’ worth and standing in WWE has been unaffected and may even have increased.
“The trilogy of matches with Cody, and then to recover after losing in Hell in a Cell, coming up on the short end of this hot rivalry, the focal point story, without missing a beat, reinsert himself in the top tier as the number one villain, bad guy on Monday Night RAW and continue to churn out these epic matches almost effortlessly, there’s no one that can touch Rollins, in my opinion,”
On the most recent episode of Monday Night Raw, Seth Rollins qualified for the men’s Money In The Bank Ladder Match. While Cody Rhodes recently underwent surgery to repair a torn pectoral tendon. Despite this, Rhodes has returned to work just a week after going under the knife.
