WWE has pulled a lot of wild marketing stunts before. This one is out there, but it worked.

The company sent people to the Colonel Sanders statue in Corbin, Kentucky’s town square. The goal was to get people to sign a petition to rename their city after the WWE Superstar. This actually worked.

King Corbin revealed via Twitter that Corbin, Kentucky changed their name to honor him.

This isn’t a long-term thing, so don’t worry about replacing your maps of Kentucky. This name change was only in effect for today, January 12th, 2020.

I love pro wrestling and hate BS. These two things drive me. Years of experience in writing, journalism, and digging exclusive insider info for Ringside News. Worked in finance before realizing pro wrestling journalism made much less sense. Pro beachballs at pro wrestling shows, pro dives if someone catches, anti bullies, olives, and pineapples on pizza.
