WWE has announced its first-ever weekly podcast series, After the Bell, will launch on October 30th. Hosted by Corey Graves, After the Bell offers fans an edgy and unpredictable look at the latest in Monday Night Raw, Friday Night SmackDown and NXT. The podcast is the first for WWE Podcast Network, a partnership between WWE and Endeavor Audio.
Each Wednesday, Graves will break down the action from WWE’s flagship programming, taking listeners on a captivating ride through the hottest WWE storylines while he catches up with the most noteworthy Superstars of the week. Paul “Triple H” Levesque, WWE Executive Vice President, Talent, Live Events & Creative, will join Graves as a special guest for the premiere episode.
“After the Bell will deliver unprecedented access to the biggest WWE Superstars and storylines week in and week out. No other podcast can say that,” said Graves. “As WWE’s first podcast we have the responsibility to ask the burning questions and it’s going to be a wild ride.”
Listeners can subscribe to After the Bell on Apple Podcasts, Spotify and Pandora.

Since then, Graves has brought his entertaining analysis to both Raw and SmackDown, and contributes to WWE Network pay-per-view events. He currently serves as the lead analyst for Friday Night SmackDown on FOX. Prior to his role as a WWE commentator, Graves performed in NXT where he was a former Tag Team Champion.
