On Corey Graves doing commentary for RAW and Smackdown:
EB: What I see as a negative is that as they continue to try and establish the fact that they are two separate brands… now you are going to have a color commentary guy on both shows? That’s a head scratcher for me. I don’t think they’ve ever really had a clear concept strategically or tactically about how to create two brands and differentiate them other than splitting the roster and having different colored ropes. For the most part that has been the extent of it. Like I’ve said, I like Corey Graves as an announcer and as a person but I think this only further dilutes whatever attempt they have made of delineating those two brands.
