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.

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 Jim Cornette’s Drive-Thru, Cornette wondered if even the great JBL will be able to get Baron Corbin over with the crowd. He mocked Corbin for looking like a mole creature.

JBL is a great promo. But can even he get Baron Corbin over? But it’s not Happy Corbin anymore. They’re trying.


It’s Baron Corbin. We were watching the show when he became homeless Corbin and then he became Happy Corbin, but did we ever just see a Baron Corbin? Before that he was the possum king, King Corbin.

Have we ever just seen Baron Corbin try to be serious?

His gear still looks horrendous. I don’t what the f***. He’s so hairless. He looks like some kind of mole creature. That lives underground and has no hair. I don’t know.

But his gear looks horrendous, which accentuates the paleness and lack of features he has. He seems to have lost weight. He’s trying to get in better shape.

His work, some of it looked okay. His physical appearance to me is odd and off-putting. I don’t know how to explain it.

We’ll have to wait to see what Triple H has in store for the newfound alliance between JBL and Baron Corbin.

What do you make of Baron Corbin’s pairing with JBL? Let us know your thoughts in the comments!
