Have you set some variable like MANPATH that prevents man from finding
man pages?  I would doubt that you have managed to remove all of your
man pages at once.  You can verify the grub package using rpm:

rpm -V grub

If it returns nothing, then the package contents are installed
correctly, with the man page at /usr/share/man/man8/grub.8.gz
