NXT performer Corey Graves announced during last night’s pre-show for the NXT Takeover: R Evolution live special on the WWE Network that due to a series of concussions sustained over the last year, he would be retiring from in-ring competition. However, Graves will remain a part of WWE and NXT as he was given a 2-year contract by WWE COO Triple H to be a part of the NXT announce team, alongside Rich Brennan and Alex Riley.
