– MLB player Andrew McCutchen responded to Corey Graves’ comments on this week’s edition of Smackdown. Graves compared what happened with Kofi Kingston getting replaced by Kevin Owens at Fastlane to McCutchen leaving the Pittsburgh Pirates after playing for the team from 2009 to 2018. He was traded to the San Francisco Giants last year. Graves claimed that that McCutchen wanted more money than the Pirates organization felt he was worth, which led to his trade.

McCutchen was not happy with Graves’ remarks and denied this was the case. He later responded on Twitter this week, “Uhh, Corey Graves I definitely didn’t ask for more money before I got traded, but I do know that Kofi Kingston is the real deal and then some. Get that man a title shot at WrestleMania!” Kofi Kingston appreciated the endorsement from McCutchen as well.

– WWE has a new fan poll up asking the WWE Universe, “Which RAW Superstar are you most eager for Roman Reigns to face?” Drew McIntyre is currently leading the poll at 37 percent. Aleister Black came in second at 17 percent. Dean Ambrose came in third at 11 percent. Bobby Lashley was last at 9 percent.

– WWE released a full NXT match video featuring Kevin Owens vs. Finn Balor for the NXT World Championship on the March 25, 2015 edition of NXT. You can check out that full NXT title match video below.
