Baron Corbin won the 2019 edition of the King Of The Ring Tournament and since then, he has been known as King Corbin. It seems a WWE Hall Of Famer thinks highly of Corbin.
While speaking on his Hall of Fame podcast, Booker T was asked who is the best King Of The Ring winner apart from himself. Booker T said that King Corbin has tried to recreate what he did as King Booker and said that Corbin is the best winner of the tournament after himself.
Booker T added that King Corbin is even better than ‘Stone Cold’ Steve Austin as a King Of The Ring winner., stating that many winners simply just wore the cape and the crown.
“You know, I’m just keeping it real, outside of myself – King Booker was the most majestic king that has worn the crown, whoever adorned the robe, the royal sceptre, as well as the insignia… there was only one king that I can really think about as far as, you know, stepping up and honestly is King Corbin. No, I’m serious. I appreciate all the Kings that have come along, but Corbin has really taken the role just like I did, he’s believed in the role to create, you know, for me, my own world, the SmackDown world, the SmackDown kingdom. This is something that Corbin has trying to recreate, so I give Corbin… a lot of the guys that wore the robe – they just wore the robe, they just wore the crown. You know I’ve talked to Steve Austin about it and the best kings about it. You know, they got Steve Austin at No. 1 (best King of the Ring poll) and I go, ‘how does this happen?’ That’s what the polls say. Fake polls. I would give King Corbin the rub.”
King Corbin is currently engaged in a feud with Rey Mysterio and Dominik Mysterio. We will have to see what else is in store for Corbin.
