Baron Corbin 6/1 (+600)

The odds may surprise you, but Corbin has been booked very strong ever since his better-than-expected chairs match with Kalisto at the TLC Pay-Per-View. He was given a lot of offense in the triple threat match for the WWE title on the “Wild Card Finals” episode of SmackDown and “controlled” 80 percent of his match against John Cena this past Tuesday.

Corbin is ascending into the world title picture and it’s totally logical to picture “The Lone Wolf” ending the first PPV of WrestleMania season by pointing at the giant WM sign.

With Goldberg-Lesnar, Undertaker-Strowman, and HHH-Rollins penciled in for Mania, Corbin vs. Styles, Cena or both, is a perfectly fine match (with entrances) to fill 20-25 minutes of the show. Corbin has shown enough in the ring lately for me to buy that he’s ready for a high level match.

Baron Corbin Is WWE’s Next Big Star, So You’d Better Get Used to Him
He’s tall, fast, talks a lot of trash and he held his own against John Cena: The Lone Wolf might be the real deal
Baron Corbin is on a path to becoming one of the biggest stars in the WWE. WWE

 

Baron Corbin took very little time becoming one of the most polarizing figures in the WWE.
The former Arizona Cardinals offensive lineman has been a pet project of the company since making his re-debut in NXT in late 2014, but with that lofty future planned out for him also came a plethora of criticism from his mic work, to how his work rate leaves much to be desired, that he has no character and so on. At the time, when he was about two years into developmental, these complaints weren’t particularly unjustified, so when he was called up to the main roster and scored a win at WrestleMania 32’s Andre the Giant Memorial Battle Royal, the criticism only got louder. Too many wrestlers got the big push too soon, and most of them would be happy to fight on the bottom of an indie card these days.
Yet Corbin has been proving himself night in and night out. Almost a year later, it’s getting harder to criticize the Lone Wolf of SmackDown Live; his improvement since joining the big leagues has been obvious to anybody watching, and his star is only on the rise from here.

If there was ever a bigger venue to prove himself, just look at Tuesday night’s blue show main event, which pitted Corbin against John Cena in his first match since returning from being a part-timer (a.k.a. filming a reality show). Although Corbin didn’t pick up the W, the match showed why he has been given a spotlight since the brand split to make a name for himself. He portrayed his character perfectly, right down to insulting and taunting AJ Styles, who was at ringside on commentary; Corbin doesn’t need any help, not even a fellow heel with a bone to pick against Cena. Corbin also showed that he can go toe-to-toe with a guy who has held the world championship belt almost more times than any other wrestler ever to deliver a decent main event on the weekly show, the staple of a rising star. That the match with Cena followed up the genuinely excellent triple threat he had with Styles and Dolph Ziggler last month just puts an exclamation point on his development.

Baron Corbin beats up John Cena on WWE SmackDown Live. WWE

 

So how did we get here? How did boring ass Baron Corbin of the 10 second squash matches in NXT (matches so boring and short that the crowd would start counting upon the ringing of the bell and not stop until the match was over) turn into one of the hottest prospects in the WWE?

You have to go back to NXT Takeover: Brooklyn, where Samoa Joe guided the big rook to his first “good” match, a showing that truly signaled the arrival of the Lone Wolf. But if you’re looking for the real moment that many will look back on as the first sign that he was comfortable being inside of a ring, look at his match with the debuting Apollo Crews from NXT Takeover: London.
“Go back to Ring of Honor!”
With those six words, Corbin solidified himself as Big Banter, a heel so cocky and out of touch that he would yell that at Apollo Crews…who…never wrestled in Ring of Honor. It didn’t matter whether Corbin planned that line beforehand or whether he botched it in the ring, it was so funny and so dickish that it got over instantly with the so-called Internet Wrestling Community (IWC). It also helped throw the spotlight on Corbin’s in-ring chatter over his promo skills, which are definitely lacking. Yet while he seems to lock up when a mic is in his hands, his smooth workrate and fast wit inside the squared circle showed the potential that seems to finally be put together on SmackDown Live.
Although his aforementioned main event with Cena was solid but didn’t exactly blow any minds, it showed something perhaps more important than that: Corbin can be an organic asset for the blue brand. He doesn’t need to be a referendum on former football players turned wrestlers with every match, he can just function as a big strong guy who can anchor a match around better performers. He’ll always have three big “wow factors” in his favor (his agility moving in and out of the ring, his ability to banter while fighting and his Deep Six, which is one of the most gorgeous-looking signatures in the company), so if he can put that together with better match pacing and a few more moves, Corbin could rocket to the top sooner than later. And if his Talking Smack appearances are to be believed, there IS a good talker in there somewhere who just needs to find his promo character to flourish. Once that happens, this mammoth of a heel will be in main events for years to come, and it’ll be the End of Days for Baron Corbin’s haters.

The Superstars of SmackDown Live, a brand within World Wrestling Entertainment (WWE), are coming to Norfolk, Dec. 10, for a live event at Norfolk Scope.

One of the individuals involved is a superstar that’s making an impact each week on SmackDown Live, the “Lone Wolf” Baron Corbin. Prior to his victory at the TLC: Tables Ladders and Chairs pay-per-view over Kalisto in a brutal Chairs Match, Corbin set aside a moment to offer an insight into his WWE career thus far.

Jonathan McLarty (JM): How do you feel the SmackDown Live brand is superior to Monday Night Raw?

Baron Corbin (BC): I think that we have a lot of competitors that are hungry for opportunity. There’s a fire on SmackDown Live that I don’t think Raw has. I think Raw is complacent in the fact that Raw’s been the flagship of WWE. Smackdown wants to be number one. When you’re handed a show like Raw that is the flagship of a company, you can be lazy. I believe we have created something very special and people really enjoy what we have.

JM: I feel like, though Smackdown Live’s broadcast window is one hour less than what Raw has on Monday’s, Talking Smack more than makes up for that. It’s continuous, no commercials, and it allows the Superstar to show their true personality.

BC: One-hundred percent. You walk on there and you have no idea what you’re walking in to. Everything is very pure, everything is raw. It’s an opportunity to be yourself and put yourself out there. That’s how you come across special things. When things come out real, you find that special thing that latches on and launches you all the way to the top.

JM: Do you feel you were presented accurately on the WWE Network series Breaking Ground?

BC: When I was interviewed to do Breaking Ground, they said ‘Hey, this is a real show. This isn’t something that’s scripted where we force you to say things.’ I stayed very true to that. What you saw on Breaking Ground was how I am 95 percent of the time. When I’m behind closed doors with my family, they’re like, ‘We don’t want to watch because we get the sweet side of you.’ Very few people get that side of me. That is a very good representation of my attitude. It’s very focused. I’ve been that way my whole life – through college, the NFL. I like the saying ‘I’m not here to make friends. I’m here to make money and win championships.’ I truly believe that. I have plenty of friends, so when I’m at work or around work, that’s who I am.

JM: With you winning the Andre the Giant Memorial Battle Royal at WrestleMania 32, your first night on the main roster, did that add any pressure to maintain that level of success?

BC: I think, every day, you have that pressure. I was told once that, ‘Everyday you either get better or you get worse. You never stay the same.’ You have to have that mindset that every day, you want to keep getting better. The pressure’s good, it makes you perform. That day, I had 100 some-odd thousand people watching me for my very first opportunity with the main roster. The pressure’s huge to perform because if you don’t, that may have been my first and last opportunity to be out there. That feeling of winning the Andre the Giant Memorial Battle Royal, the feeling is so surreal and unbelievable that you’re going to spend your career chasing moments like that. What is that next opportunity I can get to feel that feeling again?

JM: Whom do you turn backstage at SmackDown Live to talk over your ideas?

BC: We have amazing people that help us backstage, and Arn Anderson is someone I always like to look to. He’s a legend in his own right. Fit Finlay, and guys like that, who can work with you and tailor who you are and what you’re doing in the ring, are unbelievable. I believe that we connect because we have a similar attitude – that blue-collar grind mentality. Arn is a guy who helps me out quite a bit to hone in on how I can be at the top of my game. Arn and Fit are some of the best bad guys who have ever come across a wrestling ring.

JM: Favorite ice cream flavor?

BC: Chocolate peanut butter, no doubt. Everything with peanut butter is better. I used to be 335 pounds when I was playing football, so I’d eat tubs of ice cream like it was my job – tubs of ice cream and milkshakes.

JM: The SmackDown Live crew is coming to Norfolk Scope on Dec. 10, to present a live event that is non-televised and only for the fans in attendance. How does performing at this type of event differ for you than one that is televised?

BC: Live events are something special. They are intimate for the audience and we don’t have to worry about performing for cameras and presenting to the people at home on their couches. The amount of time that you are going to get to see your superstars is a lot more than if it were on TV. You get more of their personality, more interaction. I know I spend a lot of time yelling back and forth with the audience because I enjoy getting yelled at by people. I have a match against Kalisto. We’ve got a good little battle going, so I look forward to seeing if he can make it to Norfolk. We’ll try to go out there and do damage to each other and entertain people who are there wanting to be part of a really awesome show.

Tickets for the WWE Live Holiday Tour at Norfolk Scope can be purchased at all Ticketmaster outlets and the Norfolk Scope box office. Ticket prices are as low as $15 and admission is free to all active military. Currently advertised for this event, in addition to Baron Corbin and Kalisto, are: AJ Styles, Dean Ambrose, Bray Wyatt, Becky Lynch, and more. For the latest WWE news and information, visit WWE.com.
