During the May 16th 2022 WWE RAW broadcast, announcer Corey Graves stated that Sasha Banks and Naomi “summarily and unprofessionally left the arena” before the scheduled six-pack challenge could take place. Graves received some negative feedback from fans on social media for what he said.

During Busted Open Radio, WWE Hall of Famer Mark Henry commented on the matter…

“My issue was not even with the walkout, my issue was not even with the disagreement, or the disclaimer. My issue was with people on the show saying that was unprofessional because I will have to tell you right now if that was my wife and I’m working on that show, I am seriously going to walk down to the announce table and I’m going to say, ‘Hey, you stay professional. Do your job and then I won’t have to walk down here to the ring to tell you to not do that again.’”

    AEW folks need to focus on AEW. seems like every interview gravitates back to WWE

    Seeing as how the announce team doesnt really write their own commentary, id say hes mad at the wrong person. Most likely vince McMahon was in coreys ear, telling him what to say

    The thing that I don’t understand, is Mark Henry should know that Graves wasn’t’ likely ‘ saying these thing on his own volition. He really should know how these things work. Especially since both announce team said it. But, at the same time, I have never been back stage.

    If it had been Charlotte Flair or Lacey Evans that walked out and Graves said that they were unprofessional I bet Henry wouldn’t have had any issue at all. I’m just saying.

    Henry clearly had a few too many shots to the head during his career. 1) he knows damn well Graves and the others say what they’re told to say and 2) to take issue with someone calling this unprofessional act unprofessional……wtf ? Toni Storm at least finished up the event and THEN went home. These two (even though I agree with their displeasure at the booking currently) instead walked about shortly before the show started and in the process cut other women out of the card that night.
