On December 11 2014, during the pre-show of NXT Takeover: R Evolution, Graves announced that he was officially retiring from in-ring competition because of his concussion issues. Graves would then announce that he would join the NXT commentary team and that he would start at the beginning at the event.[1] He was given a two-year contract by Triple H, which gives him a shot at becoming a guest commentator for either Raw, SmackDown or pay-per-views.
