Real Name: Matt Polinsky Ring Name: Corey Graves Height: 6 ft 0 in Weight: 208 lbs. Hometown: Pittsburgh Born: February 24, 1984 Debut: March 22, 2000
A walking disaster in the guise of a man, Corey Graves is NXT’s personal agent of anarchy. The self-proclaimed “Savior of Misbehavior” is a veteran of the underground music scene. Graves would just as soon take part in a competitive match as he would deliver a sucker punch to the jaw.
Eschewing traditional ring gear for torn-up jeans, this chaos for hire will take on all comers with reckless abandon, risking life and limb in support of his own personal credo: to make sports-entertainment dangerous again. More?

With the spookiest day of the year just a week away, we’ve called upon some of your favorite NXT personalities to take a leap back in time as they recall some of their favorite and most memorable Halloween costumes.
Corey Graves as a marine
Known for his cool, laidback demeanor and incredible body art, Corey Graves traded tattoos for camouflage with this costume. Perhaps Graves can lay claim to spearheading WWE’s “Marine” franchise.
“Clearly I was a budding young marine growing up in Pittsburgh,” Graves said. “I was a master of camouflage at age 4 — so much so that my parents left me out there for three days because I blended in so well with the trees.”
On Thursday, Triple H hosted a media event at the WWE Performance Center in Orlando, Florida, to promote the career mode in WWE 2K15, where a wrestler starts out his career at NXT. Ryan Penagos, the Executive Editorial Director of Marvel’s Digital Media Group, mentioned via Twitter that he hung out with Corey Graves at the event and was promptly asked if he’s in the game.
Corey Graves & The Ascension vs. Sami Zayn & The Usos
Viktor thought he was in control until he ran into an Uso uppercut, and subsequently tagged out. Graves and Zayn squared off before Graves tagged out to Konnor. Konnor took control of Zayn and then brought Graves back in. Zayn fired up instantly and went right after Graves, causing him to tag out once again. The babyfaces established control over Viktor for the next several minutes with frequent tags. Jey Uso ran into a hard clothesline from Viktor who dragged Jey to the his teams corner and Konnor went to work.
Back from break, The Ascension were still in control of Jey Uso. Moments later, Graves tagged in and got a two-count off a gordbuster and a running elbow drop. The heels continued to dominate until the nine-minute mark when Jey reversed with a sunset flip and a hard right-hand. Jey made the hot tag a short time later and Jimmy came in on fire with Samoan drops all around. He dropped Viktor with a superkick and then crushed him in the corner with the running hip attack. Unbeknownst to Jimmy, Graves had tagged in and hit his front chop block. He looked for Lucky 13, but Jimmy reversed into a small package. Graves kicked out and Sami Zayn tagged himself in. Jimmy caught Graves with a shot and Zayn came off the top rope with a diving crossbody for a near-fall. Zayn connected with his Blue Thunder Bomb for a good false-finish, with The Ascension breaking up the pinfall. The Usos took The Ascension out with clotheslines to ringside before Zayn hit the Helluva Kick on Graves in the corner. Zayn and an Uso hit tandem diving planchas onto The Ascension at ringside, while the other Uso came off the top turnbuckle with a big splash onto Graves for the win.
