King Corbin’s End Of Days generally means the end of a match is coming. If he goes for the pinfall Corbin’s opponent isn’t kicking out.
While speaking to Fightful, King Corbin discussed a conversation he had with The Undertaker about protecting his finisher. Nobody kicks out of the End Of Days and it was the same way for The Undertaker’s Tombstone for years.
“I had a conversation with [Undertaker] about that. You know, he really made the Tombstone something very special and nobody kicked out of it for a long time. And he held it very sacred. So that was something I took to heart and something I wanted to do with it.”
“Nobody’s ever kicked out of the End Of Days, When it lands, it’s over, and people know that. Hopefully, ten years down the line, there’s a moment where, you know, someone strong enough to withstand an End Of Days and it’ll make for that iconic face, you know, that moment where like you saw [Shawn Michaels] kick out of the Tombstone and it was just unbelievable, and the shock and the awe. I think that’s an art lost nowadays. I think keeping your things sacred is a little bit lost because people want to keep up with these Internet fans who love this high, fast-paced action and these insane moves and moves on top of moves. So I try to keep it simple, and I think that’s what makes it important.”
King Corbin is taking great advice if he talks to people like The Undertaker backstage. WWE obviously has big plans for King Corbin as he continues and protecting the End Of Days is going to play a big role in that down the line.
