Corey Graves Thanks Jerry Lawler For ‘Avoiding The Iceberg’ During His Absence From WWE RAW

Corey Graves appreciates Jerry Lawler having his back on Monday nights.

Jerry Lawler has been filling in on commentary on WWE RAW for Corey Graves, who has been on his honeymoon with Carmella for the past couple of weeks. Graves checked in to give thanks to Lawler for holding down the fort in his absence, posting the following on Twitter:

Trust me, it’s not lost on me that while I’m away, it takes one of the GOATs to hold it down on my behalf. I’m grateful.

Thank you, @JerryLawler for avoiding the iceberg! [wink emoji][prayer hands emoji][crown emoji]  #WWERaw

The iceberg mention is something Graves has used on occasion to compare WWE RAW to the Titanic. He made the same reference in a recent interview with WrestleZone’s Dominic DeAngelo when describing his goals as a commentator in WWE.

“I’ve sort of grown and evolved and adapted to the partner I was working with and I feel like I’m a lot more diverse now and not just cracking jokes now, I just know the story a little bit better. But Heenan and Ventura were my influences and I think I’m kind of growing into my own role and I’m really a color commentator, that’s my job and that’s what I enjoy but in certain circumstances,” Graves noted, “it’s necessitated that I’ve taken on a little bit more of a play-by-play role at times. I know I’m not the best at it but the goal, at the end of the day is to avoid the ship hitting the iceberg.”
