Amy Polinsky and her ex-husband were together for over ten years, during which she supported his career, and the former couple welcomed three children. However, in 2019, Corey Graves’ ex-wife turned to Instagram and accused him of cheating.
Matthew Polinsky, commonly known by his ring name Corey Graves, is a WWE star who left wrestling following a career-ending injury to become a commentator. However, before finding success in the ring, he and his ex-wife, Amy Polinsky, struggled financially.
According to Corey Graves’ ex-wife, she supported the former WWE star for years and was by his side through many ups and downs. However, that ended when she was devastated by his alleged infidelity.
Amy Polinsky Played a Significant Role in Her Husband’s WWE Career
When Polinsky (née Schneider) first met Graves in 2007, she worked as a traveling BMW spokesmodel and a barmaid while her future husband took odd jobs to support himself and chase his wrestling dreams.
Although she initially did not think the relationship would go anywhere, Graves was moving in after a week, and the couple was engaged three months later.
By the time they were expecting their second child, their financial situation had gotten so dire that the former couple was on welfare and utilizing special services for pregnant women. Polinsky said:
“I remember paying for $10 worth of gas in quarters, dimes, and nickels and thinking, ‘This has to get better.’ But we were so in love.”
It eventually did get better, as after insisting her husband did not give up on his wrestling dreams and encouraging him to reach out to WWE, what was meant to be another odd job for Graves turned into a contract with the professional wrestling company.

In a since-deleted emotional Instagram post, Polinsky shared that while she knew it was below her to air her and her ex-husband’s marital dirty laundry on the internet, she was hurt and felt like she had punched in the stomach.
