WWE Night of Champions 2023 provided fans with a series of unforgettable moments, one of which sparked a connection to a former Superstar. This particular star has broken his silence in response to Corey Graves using his iconic catchphrase.

During the Intercontinental Championship match between Mustafa Ali and Gunther at Night of Champions 2023, Michael Cole posed a question to Corey Graves regarding Ali’s chances against The Ring General. In response, Graves cleverly stated that any man armed with two fists possesses a fighting chance. WWE fans may recall that James Ellsworth employed a similar catchphrase during his tenure with the company.

To the surprise of many, Ellsworth caught wind of the incident and humorously called out the 39-year-old star for pilfering his catchphrase, along with his romantic partner. The person in question is Carmella, as James Ellsworth had previously served as her manager when she held the Women’s Championship. Carmella is now married to Corey Graves.

@WWEGraves stole my line… And my girl What an SOB!” expressed James Ellsworth.


It’s important to note that these exchanges between the former WWE Superstar and the on-screen color commentator are all in good fun, with no real-life animosity between them. The WWE fanbase always relishes these delightful moments and interactions.
