Baron Corbin has been part of WWE for ten years now, and he has consistently excelled at any role he was given. In fact, Corbin is a true homegrown talent in WWE, and he doesn’t really care if someone was an indie wrestler before coming to WWE.

Corbin eventually changed into Happy Corbin and has been one of the most hated heels in WWE. He then took a hiatus from WWE television and came back as Baron Corbin, this time alongside JBL.

While speaking on WWE’s The Bump, Baron Corbin talked about his time in WWE so far. Corbin then explained why coming from the independent circuit isn’t really an accomplishment in WWE.

“A lot of these guys, it’s a bragging right. I’ve been wrestling for 15 years. Why is that a bragging right? Like I made a phone call and the WWE brought me in for a tryout and signed me within the week. That’s how it works. I don’t need to work for a hotdog or popcorn in your local gymnasium. That’s not what I do. It’s not a bragging right for me to go… That’s not something you brag about. These guys come in and that’s part of their story and giving hope to people who’s sitting in the audience.”


We’ll have to wait to see what Triple H has in store for the newfound alliance between JBL and Baron Corbin. If anything, they’re generating a massive amount of heat. So far, they seem like a perfect pair.
