John Bradshaw Layfield’s announcement that he was leaving SmackDown Live was a pretty surprising turn of events. Not a lot of people really saw the move coming even though WWE has apparently known about it since May.
It was announced today that Corey Graves will replace JBL on SmackDown Live. This is a great promotion for Graves and he will finally get to yell: “Kinshasa” once again when ever Shinsuke Nakamura hits his finishing move.
A lot of people were confused about exactly what was going down with Corey Graves and WWE. Some people were under the impression this meant Corey Graves was going to be moved off of Monday Night Raw. Thankfully, The Savior Of Misbehavior cleared things up for the fans.
Graves said he was going to be announcing both Raw and SmackDown Live now so if you’re a fan of Graves then this is going to be very cool. Corey Graves has worked hard to get to the point he is and has become quite a fan favorite. He also made a remark about Shinsuke Nakamura because everyone loves how Graves yells “Kinshasa!” So Shinsuke Nakamura better get that knee ready.
Hey @ShinsukeN, get that knee ready!

It sounds like Shinsuke Nakamura is more than ready to unleash a Kinshasa. Then again, he’s always ready to administer a stiff dose of Strong Style via his dangerous knee.
