Graves will be doing the intros for the home games.
The first week of NFL football is in the books and week two is now underway. This past Sunday, the Pittsburgh Steelers played the San Francisco 49ers in Pittsburgh.
In attendance for the game was WWE color commentator and former SmackDown Women’s Champion Carmella. Graves led the Terrible Towel Twirl before the game started.
On the newest episode of WWE After The Bell, Graves revealed that he is now the official narrator for in-game intros for Pittsburgh Steelers home games.
The Steelers kick off their home games with the Terrible Towel Twirl. When you’re in Acrisure Stadium, you got 60,000-plus all waving their towels above their head. I had the honor and privilege of being able to lead that this week to really kick off the season but more than that, I think more exciting personally was the reason I was on the field to begin with was I have the dubious distinction of being the narrator, the voice of this year’s in-game intros for the Pittsburgh Steelers so for every home game this season when the clock hits zero, the first voice you hear is mine. Give a big, ‘Here we go’ and the video packages and it’s honestly, I wanna say it’s a dream come true but it’s actually more so, growing up, being born and raised in Pittsburgh, lifelong Steelers fan, it’s so cool with WWE and the NFL have been working together. Obviously, we got the new championship legacy titles. That relationship has been really cool so to be able to experience that on my home turf, literally, in the city that I love and live in and feel so strongly about was absolutely incredible.
Carmella and Graves are expecting a child together. Carmella is due in November.
