Baron Corbin

INKED: When did your love for wrestling begin?
BARON CORBIN: Believe it or not, tattoos kind of drew me in to wrestling because as a kid in Kansas City where I’m from, wrestling has such a rich history. Me and my dad would go to shows at Memorial Hall, and we would watch wrestling on TV. I was exposed to guys that were big and athletic like Bam Bam Bigelow. He had flames tattooed on his head and I thought he was just awesome and the definition of a tough guy.

You mentioned your father as a big influencer. Tell me about that. He definitely was. My dad was an iron worker, he was tough as nails. He pushed me to be the best. I always tell the story about when I was in a karate tournament and I took 4th place. They gave me a trophy and he told me people in 4th place didn’t get a trophy and he tossed it out the car window [laughing]. He helped me become very mentally tough and he pushed me to be the best person and athlete I can be.

When did know you wanted to be a professional wrestler?
Definitely as a kid. At my dad’s funeral, we told the story about my mom coming home and my dad and I were having a wrestling match and the house was shaking. She said she could see it from outside. We had these big living room brawls with my brother and my dad and it was the best time ever.

Who were some of your heros in the ring when you were growing up?
It goes back to Bam Bam Bigelow and Big Boss Man, and just these big guys who could really move.

When did you start getting tattoos?
When I was 18 I got my very first tattoo. It’s a horrible tattoo, it’s a Japanese or Chinese symbol for strength with two weird Celtic knots. I keep thinking I’m going to get it covered up with a big back piece or something but in that moment, it stirred the pot and I just kept getting covered. Then I got a giant dragon on my thigh, and a giant tree on the back of my leg, then I started getting my chest done and then I got portraits of my grandfather and my dad. My mom hates every single one of them.

Are there any tattoos inspired by your wrestling career?
Yes. The one I just got, actually. I got lobo on the back of my head/ear area and it means “wolf” in Spanish. My wife is Spanish, and I want my children to speak Spanish, and I am the Lone Wolf in WWE. Corey Graves actually gave me that name. My character rides the line of that darker world and I have a bunch of horror movie tattoos, as well as Jack the Ripper.

Tell us about Liars Club.
Liars Club is my clothing line. And I have a couple of tattoo artists that help me with designs. It’s about that vibe of even though our appearance may not be acceptable we can still take over the world.

What’s next for Baron Corbin?
WWE Championship all the way. That’s why I came to WWE, I want to be the WWE Champion, and I feel like everybody should want that, and if they don’t they don’t belong here.

Just two years ago at WrestleMania 32, Corbin had made his surprise debut on the WWE main roster and won the Andre the Giant Memorial Battle Royal.

The former NFL offensive lineman and Golden Gloves Champion has made an impact in his first few years in WWE after working his way through NXT. Already a United States Champion and a Money in the Bank winner, Corbin now has his sights on becoming one of the company’s top guys after being moved from “SmackDown Live” to “RAW” as part of the recent Superstar Shakeup.

Corbin will be one of the record 50 participants in the Greatest Royal Rumble match, the biggest match of its kind in WWE history. It’s just one match on the stacked card at the Greatest Royal Rumble event taking place Friday, April 27 at the King Abdullah International Stadium in Jeddah, Saudi Arabia. The show — which includes seven championship matches plus The Undertaker returning to the ring — will air live on the WWE Network with the pre-show at 11 a.m ET and the main show starting at 12 p.m. ET.

Sporting News recently spoke with “The Lone Wolf” about the massive event in Saudi Arabia, why he is jealous of Rusev and why he thinks “RAW” is the best place for him right now.

 

SPORTING NEWS: Are you ready for the long flight to Saudi Arabia?

BARON CORBIN: Oh, yeah. The last time I was over there it was such a cool experience. I was wondering where the next place and next arena we would go to. To be going back over there for the Greatest Royal Rumble is pretty awesome. The flight is going to be long but it’s that good excitement. The flight home will be rough. That’s when it gets hard — when the fun is over and you have to go back home.

SN: When you have a long flight like this one, what’s going through your head? How do you use the flight time to get prepared for the show?

BC: You definitely start trying to get your creative juices flowing. You want to have ideas when you get there and where you want to go and what story you want to tell to the millions of people around the world that are going to be watching this event. But you don’t want to drive yourself crazy. If you start thinking about something too much, it can be a bad thing. So, I use that time on the plane to watch some TV shows off Netflix and whatnot. I’ve been loading my iPad with TV shows for a few days now. I’m trying to be ready because it is a 12 or 13-hour flight. I’ll definitely come up with some great ideas and I’ll watch some shows.

SN: The show is airing live on the WWE Network on Friday at noon ET with an 11 a.m. pre-show. How many people do you think will be coming up with excuses or will be sick that day so they can stay home from work?

BC: I think a lot of people! I think a lot of those people were at WrestleMania as well. We have a true following of diehard fans who watch anything and everything we do. That’s why we love what we do, because of our fans and the support they give. Getting to see this for the first time ever, this experience in this part of the world at this magnitude, I think a lot of people are going to have a cold or a cough and they can’t go to work Friday and the WWE Network is going to be running all over the world.

SN: WWE recently had WrestleMania 34 and now you have this huge event. Does this feel like another WrestleMania?

BC: It definitely does. The magnitude of this is insane. It’s crazy to comprehend because I haven’t been over there yet to see the building, the arena, and the atmosphere of the people. When you get to WrestleMania and you’re walking around, you just feel that energy from the people in streets and in restaurants and buildings. Everywhere you go, everyone is on that energy level with you. They’re excited for the show and they’re excited for every part of it. I’m excited to get to Jeddah and experience that energy that the people are going to have. I think that elevates it and that makes it have that WrestleMania mentality. It’s unbelievable what we’re doing.

Then you look at the card — a 50-man Greatest Royal Rumble match — when you look at the magnitude of the matches. You have a Casket Match between ‘Taker and Rusev. Like, that’s crazy. When was the last time we had a Casket Match? It’s been a little while, so we’re breaking out a lot of big things for this. I can only imagine that it’s going to reach the level of WrestleMania.

SN: Be honest — were you jealous when you found out that Undertaker was having a Casket Match and it wasn’t against you?

BC: (laughs) I 100 percent was jealous. I sent a few text messages to people going “what the heck? How am I not in this match?” There was a huge moment of jealousy. I’ve always wanted to be in the ring with ‘Taker. I got a little taste of him at the Royal Rumble a couple of years ago and he eliminated me. I owe him a good fight, that’s for sure. I grew up watching ‘Taker and he used to scare me as a kid so I think it would only add to the excitement to be in a casket match with a guy like that. There’s definitely some jealousy.

SN: Have you been able to spend any time with Undertaker when he comes back for WrestleMania or other events?

BC: I’ve been really fortunate in that I got to spend some time with him when I was in NXT. He helped me a little bit on my entrance and the way I move. It seems like he gravitates towards me because we kind of have that same mentality, we both walk on the edge of things. We both love boxing and MMA and we kind of style ourselves after that. We throw really nice punches and they do a lot of damage. I think he saw that when I was in NXT, a little bit of himself in me and the style I have, a big guy who can really move. So every time he’s around, I always make sure to spend 15, 20 minutes talking to him about wrestling and my career. I always try to go as long as I can just about life and what’s going on at home for both of us whether it’s motorcycles or getting tattooed or who knows. I always try to soak up as much as I can from him when I’m around him.

SN: You’re going to be part of the 50-man Royal Rumble match at the show. That’s the biggest Royal Rumble match ever. I can imagine it can be a bit tough navigating through a 30-man Royal Rumble match. What’s it going to be like with 50 people in it?

BC: (laughs) All I can really do is laugh because I have no idea. I have no idea how this is going to go. I was in the Andre the Giant Memorial Battle Royal at WrestleMania and we started with 30 guys standing in the ring and I was like “holy moley, I can’t even move”. I just started swinging at everybody. I don’t know how the structure for this is going to be. Are we starting with guys in? Are we going every 60 seconds? 90 seconds? How close to the Royal Rumble are we going? I have no idea. I’m just going to have to have my head on a swivel and see what it throws at me and just but I know it’s going to be madness, that’s for sure.

SN: Do you know that if you did two-minute intervals, the match would go almost two hours?

BC: Yeah! I don’t want to be No. 1 in that case! Then I’d have to go out there for two hours and throw everybody else out of the ring. Is there a water break in this thing? It’s crazy.

SN: You just got moved to “RAW” in part of the Superstar Shakeup. Were you hoping you’d be switching from “SmackDown” to “RAW”?

BC: You know, it was kind of bittersweet. I feel like we were really building something amazing at “SmackDown Live” and you get into a routine. My week has been completely screwed up this week because I keep thinking I’m a day ahead of what I actually am. I woke up this morning getting ready to take the trash out and I was like ah, it’s not Friday yet, it’s Thursday because I came home on Tuesday. My internal clock is out of whack. That’s taking some adjusting.

I think as far as my career, it’s the correct move for me. I think it’s the correct path, the correct place to go because you’ve got guys over there who will elevate you to a whole other level. AJ Styles is amazing and I think we’ve had some amazing matches, especially when I took the United States Championship off him. That was amazing and it did a lot for my career but I want to get over and mix it up with guys like Roman Reigns. He’s unbelievable. I’m looking forward to his Cage Match with Brock (Lesnar) in Saudi Arabia on Friday. It’s gonna be a war. If you saw what they did at ‘Mania, I can’t imagine how physical it’s going to get.

But I want to go and stand toe-to-toe with a guy like Roman or Brock or Seth Rollins. I think there’s unbelievable competitors on “RAW” and people look at “RAW” and say that’s the primetime, it’s the jewel of WWE. I want to be in those conversations — who are our top guys? Who’s the guy that can lead WWE into the future? I want my name in that conversation. I think “RAW” is a place I can solidify that.

SN: Do you think you’re a better fit on “RAW” because there are more guys that are your size such as Roman Reigns, Brock Lesnar, Braun Strowman, overall more big guys on that brand?

BC: I definitely do. I think there’s a lot of guys who impose much more threat. I’ve always been a guy, I ran my mouth in NXT about the little guys who come through and they are tough and feisty or whatever it is. To me, they’re no more dangerous than a little chihuahua. So, I want to get in there and roll around with the big guys. Braun Strowman, that guy’s a monster. He’s done some amazing things. I think he pulled a building down this year. I think it’s a good test for me. I believe that I’m a very special person in my abilities of being able to be so athletic at such a big size. I’m 6-8, 280 pounds and I feel like I move like I’m 5-10 and 200. I really want to test my athletic ability, my toughness and my skills against those guys who are in my ballpark, size wise.

‘I tease Corey Taylor for being old’ – meet WWE’s most metal superstar

 

Baron Corbin bigs up metal bands on Twitter, has a move named after Marilyn Manson, and is throwing down at Wrestlemania this Sunday
Whether you’ve started your daily vocal warm-ups in preparation to boo Roman Reigns out of the building or are simply confused by your old mate from school banging on about ‘justice for AJ’ on Facebook, chances are, you know it’s Wrestlemania this Sunday. WWE’s annual hallmark pay-per-view isn’t just by a distance the biggest event in professional wrestling (or ‘sports entertainment’, as they’ve attempted to rebrand it); it’s one of the single biggest media extravaganzas in the world.

Wrestling has long had a strong relationship with rock and metal culture, from heavy bands through the years soundtracking many of WWE’s flagship shows (Ghost, Baroness and Bring Me The Horizon are just a few names to offer songs for their NXT division in the past year), to UK company Progress branding themselves as ‘punk rock pro wrestling’ and featuring a predominantly metal-savvy crowd at their monthly events.

Plus, whichever way you cut it, wrestling has been stacked with metal-as-hell characters over the years, be it the likes of The Undertaker, Kane and Sting, who could all have walked straight out of a Behemoth video, or Hall Of Fame-level names like Stone Cold Steve Austin, Chris Jericho and Triple H regularly repping rock and metal bands outside of the ring.

This crossover appeal reached its zenith in June last year when Metal Hammer awarded Triple H – a current force behind the scenes at WWE as well as in the ring – with the one-off Spirit Of Lemmy Award as a part of our Golden God celebrations. Presented by Megadeth’s Dave Mustaine live on stage at Download, with the NXT superstars watching from the wings, it felt like a natural peak to a connection between cultures that has run for decades.
Watching from sidestage with his NXT colleagues that day was a man who has since not only moved on to become a major force on WWE’s main roster, but has arguably become metal culture’s most faithful rep on the big stage.

“Going out to Download, that show was insane!” beams Baron Corbin of the whole experience today. “From top to bottom; the mud, the rain, NXT being a part of it all, it was one heck of an experience, that’s for sure.”

While many NXT stars onsite that day were experiencing rock culture close up for the first time, Baron is an old hand at our game. He spent his teenagers years watching the likes of Slipknot, Marilyn Manson and White Zombie at Ozzfest, and when he’s not bigging up bands like Korn, Nothing More and Zeal & Ardor on Twitter, he’s donning the threads of metal clothing mega-label Black Craft to the ring. He even has a signature move – Deep Six – in tribute to the Marilyn Manson song of the same, and last year he made international headlines for an ‘altercation’ with Corey Taylor at a festival in the US. With the Smackdown heavyweight repping metalheads around the world at Wrestlemania this Sunday, we caught up with Baron to talk wrasslin’, festivals and heavy freakin’ metal.

How did you get into metal?

“My dad was a rock ‘n’ roll guy; it’s what he loved, and he got me into that world. He got me into being a part of shows and wanting to go and experience them.”

You got your first taste of festival culture at Ozzfest. What was that like?

“When you go to shows like that, and you get to see bands like Ozzy and Manson and White Zombie and Slipknot and System Of A Down, it just tailors your lifestyle. That rock ‘n’ roll music, the emotion of it, it just moulds you. Watching those stacked lineups, those shows were insane. And a lot of those guys are still putting out great stuff! You see the evolution of those guys, and it continues to tailor me as a person.”
What are you listening to at the moment?

“I continue to love my old stuff – Manson and Slipknot and stuff like that – but right now, I think Ghost are unbelievable. Also, Gojira’s newest album is insane, the best stuff they’ve done. I’m loving that record. Also, Sevendust, Highly Suspect and Nothing More, all those dudes are killing it right now.”

Have you caught up with Corey Taylor recently?

“Haha! Yeah, we still throw stuff back and forth at each other. We’re both competitors in our world. I tease him about being old and that I grew up watching Slipknot at Ozzfest, and we argue about who does better at selling tickets in arenas. That’s great competition for me and him. He’s doing well; I talked to him the other day and they’re working on new stuff for Stone Sour, and that’s gonna be sick. He’s always on the move and doing great stuff.”

The fallout from that whole thing really opened people’s eyes to the crossover between metal and wrestling. Did you realise how big that story was gonna get?

“I had no idea how much that was gonna blow up. I grew up going to rock shows, and the lines of rock ‘n’ roll cross over with wrestling so much. Wrestling is an opportunity to go to a show, be a part of it and feel the emotions, from anger to frustration to sadness to pain – everything that music can make you feel.

So the crossover between audiences is unbelievable, and when the two industries collide, and you have one of their biggest guys in Corey, crashing into one of our biggest superstars, and he hits me in the teeth, it’s cool to see! And maybe it opens a few eyes for people that didn’t look at wrestling or didn’t look at that kind of music, and it helps us both.”

 

Are you ready for Wrestlemania this Sunday?

“I’m ready to rock! I’m facing Dean Ambrose for the Intercontinental Championship, and hopefully I’m gonna win and start my own little Wrestlemania streak. The lead-up to Wrestlemania is always crazy, because you have all these guys fighting for an opportunity to be a part of the show, and get an opportunity to cement themselves in the Wrestlemania history books. It’s the culmination of your year, the biggest show for us. Last year, my Mania debut was my debut on the main roster, so it was unexpected. I didn’t have time to build up to it or anything like that. It was just, ‘Hey, here’s the fire, jump in’. But I went out, I won the Andre The Giant Memorial Battle Royale, and that launched me on the main roster and did a lot of great things for me. So Mania is a really good chance to go and show everyone who you are.”

You mentioned making a big impact in your Mania debut last year by winning one of the show’s biggest matches – how hard was it keeping that momentum going?

“I just knew it was an opportunity to project me to where I wanted to go. And it puts pressure on you to perform. I genuinely believe that every single day, you can either get better or you can get worse, and that was one hell of a place to have to get better from. Plus, performing under pressure is when I’m at my best. It’s what I do. I played football [Baron played at college level and was drafted in the NFL], I’m a professional wrestler, I like it when all eyes are on me. I love to be able to rub someone’s face in my own success when they tell me I can’t do something. That’s a little vindictive if you will, but I guess that’s why I’m good at what I do – pissing people off and beating up heroes, haha!”

Wrestlemania takes place this Sunday at the Camping World Stadium in Orlando, Florida. You can stream it live on the WWE Network.

Baron Corbin was a guest on The Bob and Tom Show, which you can watch in its entirety in the video above. Here are some of the highlights:

His tattoos:

“My first one was terrible, it’s Chinese symbol on my back, I hope it means ‘Strength.’ Then, I think I got a giant dragon on my leg, my legs are covered. Nobody gets to see my legs, but there covered, I got all kinds of stuff down there from Candy Man and Jack ‘The Ripper,’ portraits of my Dad and Grandpa.”

PG language in WWE:

“Yeah, ya know, I tailor that [to] ‘PG.’ I mean with anything, emotions get high, we’re very competitive with what we do, everybody wants to be the best, so, sometimes those emotions will get the best of you and you’ll let a word fly and you’ll hear about it later. So, ya know, better to ask for forgiveness than permission, right?”

How much of the “Baron Corbin” persona is him:

“I mean that attitude, that persona I carry is something I’ve always had with me, I mean, that’s what made me successful, especially in football and is making me successful now. In college, practice is draggin’ Coach goes, ‘Oh hey, go on over there and start a fight with one of the Linebackers.’ Okay. So I’ll go and start a fight with one of the Linebackers…It’s just an attitude that really developed in me and now we just amplify it times 100 and make sure everybody understands what I do and what I’m about.”

Baron Corbin also discussed his time in football and favorite music. You can hear the full interview by watching the video above.

Baron Corbin’s NXT TakeOver: Dallas entrance gear provides a rare look inside The Lone Wolf’s world

Plenty of statements were made at the historic NXT TakeOver: Dallas. Championships changed hands, debuts were made and war was waged at the biggest NXT live special yet.

However, the most striking fashion statement may have been made by Baron Corbin. Two days before he claimed victory in the Andre the Giant Memorial Battle Royal at WrestleMania, The Lone Wolf strode into the sold-out Kay Bailey Hutchison Convention Center clad in a vest that looked like something out of Mad Max.

The custom design featured grey wolf skulls on each shoulder with their fangs bearing down, and a spine tethered together with a motorcycle chain. The eerie gear was appropriate for someone who wants to bring about the End of Days for anyone he faces. But the jacket also provided a unique look into The Lone Wolf’s personal life.

“I try to fit what I do outside of the ring with me into what I do here,” Corbin told WWE.com. “I want to carry a part of me when I walk to the ring. My house is filled with animal bones, some human bones and skulls, really old medical tools. I’m fascinated with that world of strange and apocalyptic stuff. Who I am is tailored into that jacket.”

Viewers of WWE Breaking Ground got a brief look into Corbin’s life when he went on the hunt for medical oddities and bone specimens during NXT’s tour through Nashville last fall. To anyone who might scoff at his unusual pursuits, The Lone Wolf has the same attitude he gives anyone who might overlook him in the ring.

“I’ve always been one of those people who don’t care what others think,” he said. “I just like what I like. There’s something about those things that make people want to turn away. It freaks them out. Something about it sucked me in.”

The Andre the Giant Memorial Battle Royal winner hopes that the vest sends a message to anyone daring enough to step in the ring with him.

“I want it to make people uncomfortable,” Corbin said. “I want it to make people nervous. I want it to intimidate my opponents or anyone else who steps in my way. They can look at that vest and see that I enjoy getting my hands dirty.”

Dolph Ziggler learned that the hard way on Raw, when Corbin drove him into the arena floor with End of Days. The Lone Wolf is hoping that the painful beating and his ominous ring gear from TakeOver will send a message to the rest of the WWE roster.

“My world is one that people don’t want to walk in,” he said. “But I enjoy taking a stroll through it.”

Many professional wrestling legends have made their way through The Township Auditorium over the years. On Friday, the superstars of tomorrow take center stage.

NXT, the WWE’s popular and growing developmental division, makes its debut in Columbia as part of a regional tour. Among the featured wrestlers is fast-rising Baron Corbin, who is already part of WWE’s main roster and won the Andre the Giant Memorial battle royal last weekend at WrestleMania 32.

Originally from just outside of Kansas City, Corbin signed with the WWE in 2012 after his pro football career ended. Under his real name, Tom Pestock, he played college football at Northwest Missouri State and spent three years in the NFL with the Indianapolis Colts and Arizona Cardinals.

A 6-foot-6 and nearly 330-pound offensive lineman in the NFL, Corbin is now closer to 265 as an up-and-coming heel, or bad guy. He’s part of the main event Friday in Columbia.

Who is Baron Corbin and what do fans need to know about him?

“He’s a no-nonsense guy who usually gets what he wants. It doesn’t matter who’s in his way. He’s not afraid to get his hands dirty. He gets it done as violent as possible.”

You already had a big Wrestlemania moment – what was that like?

“It was unbelievable. We had over 100,000 people there. I was the last one standing in the ring and I got the trophy. My family was up front. It was pretty surreal. The noise, the energy, the atmosphere was untouchable. The feeling you get from that is just unreal.”

When did you know you wanted to be a wrestler?

“As a kid, wrestling is something my dad and I had in common. We used to go to Memorial Hall in Kansas City. It’s Harley Race territory and we got to see a lot of amazing people come through there like Dusty Rhodes, Ric Flair, Kamala and Ted DiBiase. It was something I had a lot of fun doing with my father. As I grew up I played football, and football paid for college, and then football paid me. When I was finished playing in the NFL, that [wrestling] was my opportunity and I got my shot and I’m making the most of it.”

Describe the transition between football and wrestling?

“The training came easy. My whole life has been about training. It’s all the other things that are more difficult: going out and being on a microphone and having your face exposed. That’s what’s new. My career in football I was wearing a helmet. Being an athlete is natural for me. Now it’s bringing your talking game to the next level and exposing yourself to new things like promos and things like that. It’s something I’m learning to get better at every day.”

How did you transform your body from football to wrestling?

“I lost almost 70 pounds. I was 330 pounds when I was in Arizona. I’m still changing my body. As an offensive guard in Arizona my goal was to be as big and strong and explosive as possible. Now I still want to be strong and explosive and want to look good as well. That’s a difficult transformation to make when you’ve been 300-plus pounds for about 10 years. My body is adjusting to the new world.”

Did your ‘nastiness’ as an offensive lineman translate well to wrestling?

“Absolutely, 100 percent. Any kind of pro scouting report you read, it talked about mean and nasty and violent a player I was. In training camp in Arizona I would get fights with my teammates. That’s the attitude I have. I definitely brought that into wrestling.”

Describe NXT and what it’s meant for the fans and the business.

“NXT has grown immensely in the last year, year and a half to where we’re traveling now, we’re doing overseas tours. The atmosphere we get with NXT and NXT fans, they’re a die-hard group. They care deeply about NXT. It’s a very unique experience when you come to it. It’s like when you find that local band you love playing at a small place and there are 50 people there. You continue to watch them and it grows to arenas. That’s what NXT is doing.”
