WWE couples are often kept out of the spotlight, unless they carry the two most important titles in the company. However, not every couple is Seth Rollins and Becky Lynch. One such couple that people know about is Corey Graves and Carmella. The former Women’s Champion and the commentator have been dating since 2019.

Graves and Carmella met each other when Carmella made her main roster debut. The former NXT superstar was married prior to his relationship with Carmella. His now ex-wife accused Carmella of being the reason for the couple’s divorce.

In an interview with E!, Carmella responded to the threats and harsh words directed towards her for being an alleged ‘homewrecker’. “Honestly, it was super difficult. I’ve been in the public eye, but I’ve never been to a point where, you know, stories or allegations were coming out.”

“I was getting death threats, I was just getting all these awful things said about me,” she stated. “My grandmother’s calling me, ‘What is this? You’re on the New York Post about wrecking a home!’ And I’m like, ‘No!'”

The couple has been dating for over a year

Graves and Carmella confirmed their relationship on an episode of Total Divas. She revealed the relationship to former WWE superstar Sonya Deville. Carmella also revealed that the relationship began while Graves was getting divorced.

Since then, both superstars frequently post about each other on their social media profiles. The couple has been dating for over a year as of December 2020. They are one of the few couples that play major roles on live television.

Graves is slowly becoming the voice of WWE. That title is usually reserved for the likes of Jim Ross, Jerry Lawler, Vince McMahon, or even Michael Cole. Alongside Cole, Graves has quickly grown into his new role as color commentator.

Graves wasn’t a commentator from the beginning. He had a pretty promising NXT career and even held the NXT tag team championships with Neville (PAC) which ended because of an unfortunate injury.

Since then, the commentary table became his refuge. Graves even hosts a podcast called After the Bell. It ranks pretty high on the list of wrestling podcasts.
