On the latest episode of WWE Now, McKenzie Mitchell revealed the guests for “After The Bell,” the new podcast hosted by Corey Graves. This would be the first show under the WWE podcast network umbrella.
WWE COO Triple H, Hall Of Famer Ric Flair and Universal Champion Seth Rollins will be the guests on the debut episode.
In a video posted on his Twitter account, Graves let fans know that he doesn’t plan on doing a cookie-cutter podcast and seemed to tease breaking away from the WWE formula of not mentioning the backstage stuff or news related to what is going on elsewhere in wrestling.
In the clip below, Graves said that he might bring up KO and he doesn’t mean Kevin Owens. The KO appears to be a reference to Kenny Omega. It would be a timely question since Rollins recently said that Omega could wrestle him at WrestleMania whenever he’s ready to leave the minor leagues (AEW).
Here is what Graves said today:
“I just got home from SmackDown, saw the announcement from WWE Now about the guest list for the first-ever After the Bell. I appreciate the love, and no offense, but McKenzie and your teleprompter, that ain’t it, okay? This isn’t about being edgy, this is about being honest, alright? I don’t know what to expect, but I can guarantee what it won’t be. Maybe I’m gonna about Cesaro and how he should be in the main event of everything. Maybe we’ll talk about Lana and Lashington Steel on Monday Night Raw. I got Triple H on the show. I’m gonna get the answers that you journalists can’t get on your quarterly conference call. Maybe I’ll talk to Seth Rollins about being ‘not cool.’ Alright, maybe I’ll ask him about KO – And I don’t mean Kevin Owens. I got Bayley. I got ‘Nature Boy’ Ric Flair. Wherever you get your podcasts, go subscribe to WWE After the Bell right now. We’re going to change from within, alright? And if I’m going out, I’m going out on my sword.”
