Baron Corbin never made it to the top of NXT before his main roster call-up. The Andre the Giant Memorial Battle Royal winner never quite made it to the top of the main roster, either. Despite a Money in the Bank run, he didn’t cash in to win the title, and now he’s on his own once again after another shift in his creative direction.

JBL parted ways with Baron Corbin on RAW, and the WWE Hall of Famer won’t be back on WWE television for a while. It is unclear what is going to happen with Baron Corbin, but Triple H obviously thought that things weren’t working out.

Dave Meltzer noted on Wrestling Observer Radio that WWE nixed this angle, and it seems that Baron Corbin is going to enter into, yet another, phase in his career.

“They gave up on it. Obviously, this wasn’t the plan. The guy in charge, that’s Paul (Levesque), felt it wasn’t working and that was it. Where they go with Corbin, I don’t know. It felt very much like a burial for Corbin…He’s had so many gimmick changes. There’s nothing wrong or right with him but in the pantheon of stars, he’s just not at that top star level. I think they wanted him to be at that level and they gave him every chance to be at that level. He’s just a guy. A tall guy but he’s just a guy.”


WWE inked a long deal with Baron Corbin, because he’s a versatile performer, and he obviously takes everything he is given to run with things. We’ll have to see what’s next for him, but it seems that Corbin will walk down the road to WrestleMania alone.
