Baron Corbin has been an integral part of WWE for a decade, seizing every opportunity that came his way. His time on the main roster was largely marred by a lot of inconsistent booking. Now it appears Corbin is fighting to remain in NXT for three more months.

Baron Corbin was also a free agent after the WWE Draft and fans wondered what would become of him. Corbin then made his shocking return to NXT in May and immediately ambushed Carmelo Hayes.

It culminated in a match for the NXT Championship against Carmelo Hayes, where Corbin brought back his Lone Wolf gimmick, where he lost in the end. He then started a feud with budding Superstar Gable Steveson on NXT television.

While speaking to Joey Karni of The Angle Podcast, Baron Corbin talked about his time in NXT and revealed that he is fighting to stay in NXT and stay there for at least two or three more months.


I’m still on all three shows. But I am fighting to stay in NXT a little bit because I really just wanna give our audience a good break from me, you know? Give them a few months without me driving them nuts. So I would like to personally stay in NXT for a couple more months and just really fine-tune the details of what I’m trying to bring to the people and I mean, NXT’s great but I’m also enjoying working the superstars down there. They’re hungry, they got a lot of energy, a lot of excitement, they love this. It elevates your passion… So it’s a fun place to be. They could call me for SmackDown tonight. I don’t know. I don’t know what’s happening but, I’m loving it down there.

During the Great American Bash match against Gable Steeson, fans cheered for Baron Corbin, which was a very rare thing. The match also ended in very divisive manner. It remains to be seen if Steveson will remain in NXT for the next few months.
