    Why’s Rey out of action now? Not that I’m shocked, just curious.

      He probably has a tummy ache

    I’ve been watching a few of Corey Graves matches.. He is pretty decent in the ring, has an interesting gimmick.. Could be pretty good if used properly.

      I think he’s still dealing with his personal issues.
