Baron Corbin suffered an existential crisis during a previous episode of SmackDown and was approached by JBL with an offer to ditch his old gimmick. JBL also had a ton of good things to say about Baron Corbin.
The former Happy Corbin was traded to the red brand and made his debut on this week’s episode of Monday Night RAW. He was introduced by JBL and joined commentary for his match against Dolph Ziggler.
While speaking on RAW Talk after the show, JBL was asked why he decided to support Corbin. JBL made it clear that it was an easy decision and that Corbin is the modern day wrestling god.
This is the emergence, the debut, of the modern-day “Wrestling God”. The era of dominance, this man is a cornerstone. This is what you build a company on. So this has nothing to do with my return.
I came back for one reason, and one reason only, and that is because this man is here. There is a lot of people out there you think ‘oh, I could be that guy’. You can’t be him. So ask him the questions because that is the man.
How do you think it feels? I went out there on Monday Night RAW on my first night and I dominated Dolph Ziggler.
With this man’s guidance, his wisdom, he’s a Hall of Famer and he’s passing this stuff onto me. The sky? There is no limit.
We are changing the game. Like he said, a modern-day “Wrestling God”. The landscape has officially changed.
We’ll have to wait to see what Triple H has in store for the newfound alliance between JBL and Baron Corbin.
