King Corbin held the King of the Ring moniker proudly. He also generated a ton of heat in the process. Now it appears that King Corbin is no more and he’s back to being the Lone Wolf, because Shinsuke Nakamura took his crown.
Shinsuke Nakamura stole Corbin’s crown a few weeks ago and he’s had a lot of fun with it since then. We’ve seen videos of Nakamura driving around with his crown and showing off in public. They soon got to business in the ring.
While Rick Boogs played him on with his eclectic guitar at ringside, Shinsuke Nakamura was able to beat Corbin and claim his crown. Now WWE has one true king and it is the King of Strong Style.
We’ll have to see if Jerry Lawler says anything about Nakamura’s new distinction as WWE’s only crowned king. This came just in time for live events, but it was not noted as an actual King of the Ring transition of power. A possible King of the Ring tournament might come sooner than later to WWE thanks to a huge pull to book more gimmicked events.
Are you happy that King Corbin lost his crown for good? Sound off in the comments!
