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?

Four-thousand miles and a transatlantic voyage away from his home of Liverpool, England, Robbie Brookside should look out of place in sunny Orlando, Fla., but the onetime savior of British wrestling is anything but.
Unlike his best friend and fellow countryman William Regal, Brookside never considered wrestling in the United States to be his end game. Perhaps inconceivably, WWE Superstardom never factored into his plans, nor was it something he pursued, which only makes his current role, as a trainer at the WWE Performance Center, all the more fascinating.
As circuitous and unforeseen as his arrival to WWE’s breeding ground may be, ask any NXT Superstar who has worked with him and they’ll all tell you the same thing: Brookside has become an invaluable member of the Performance Center coaching staff since taking up residence in Florida in fall 2013.
“Robbie brings a whole different aspect,” said Corey Graves. “That British style that he excels in is different, but just his understanding of wrestling and the way he’s able to break things down, theory-wise, is unbelievable. He can show you how to do a basic headlock, or he can show you some insane reversal to the headlock that you never even thought existed. He can literally do anything in-between the ropes.”
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.
