Corey Graves’ wife has posted a message on Instagram accusing him of sleeping with WWE Superstar and former SmacKDown Live WWE Women’s Champion Carmella.
“This may be totally below me to do but I’m hurt. I’m sad. I’ve put 11 years into supporting a man to accomplish his dream only for him to punch me in the gut! I’ve been through suicide attempts, alcoholism, among so much more with him and stuck by his side.
The kicker is finding out that he’s been sleeping with one of my daughters role models all along. Carmella and Corey Graves I hope you guys are happy. I really do!”
In the since-deleted Instagram post, Polinsky first mentioned Graves’ apparent suicide attempts and alcoholism before she brought up that he had been “sleeping with” Carmella.
She also posted several photos of text conversations, including one of a text from Graves which read:
“I’m dead. I’m at home in my room and I have all of the food. I just kinda wanna disappear forever. Legit, I can’t do any better than what I’ve got. I think this is it for me.
I can’t top it what I’ve got, so Why try? I just wanna fade away. Give them whatever they need. I’ve come to terms recently, that I need to shut it all down. All of it. I’m going to sleep. Maybe I’ll wake up. Maybe I won’t. I don’t wanna wake up anymore. Just make sure the kids know I loved them.”
Apparently in response to the Instagram post, Graves allegedly messaged his wife: “I suggest taking that post down, because WWE is gonna sue you. I just got a call.”
Amy Polinsky’s accusations against her husband caused both Corey Graves and Carmella to trend worldwide on Twitter, where several users slammed the WWE color commentator for his alleged affair. Forbes added that many of the angry posts against Graves were made by women, which could be a cause for concern due to WWE’s ongoing “women’s evolution” movement and the company’s difficulty in attracting female viewers to its television programs.
