Baron Corbin just lost his crown to Shinsuke Nakamura, marking a new time in The Lone Wolf’s career where he will change things up once again. Now he is no longer a king, but something even more interesting could be coming his way.
We previously reported that it appears WWE is seemingly giving Baron the new name “Happy Corbin.” That could help his current situation, especially if he can put a smile on his face.
According to Andrew Zarian on the Mat Men Pro Wrestling podcast, Corbin is “beloved” backstage in WWE. He’s been called “the most pleasant” to work with backstage in WWE which certainly paints him in a different light while so many fans groan when they see him on television.
“Baron Corbin is beloved in that company. Maybe not by the fans but I can tell you from a former writer one time told me that he is one of the most pleasant people to work with because he will not be combative and he works with you on stuff. And us as fans we look at this and we’re like ‘ah, another Baron Corbin match’ but his heat was so negative where it’s now turned into normal heat in a weird way.”
The Breaking Ground reality television series that WWE produced showed Baron Corbin in a much different way as well. They accented how laid back and cool of a guy he is. Yes, Corbin loves expensive watches, cars, and BBQ, but he is also apparently an incredibly easy person to work with. That could be a big reason why he keeps getting prime spots on WWE television.
What’s your take on Baron Corbin? Does he still have go away heat with you? Sound off in the comments!
