Alongside Randy Orton, acting WWE Raw General Manager Baron Corbin is a controversial man when it comes to Twitter. ‘The Lone Wolf’ takes notable jabs at fans on the social media site, and according to Corbin on Inside the Ropes, he does it because he likes to entertain himself.
“Sometimes people say things and they’re lobbing a softball and you can hit it out of the park. If people want to spend their day, like, I just can’t fathom how people spend their day being so negative all the time. That’s what Twitter is, a very negative place. So I like to entertain myself.
There are a lot of long car rides. A lot of plane rides. And that’s usually peoples response when I destroy them. They’re like ‘Oh, you must care because you’re doing it.’ And I’m just like, no. I’m bored at being at an airport because I’m delayed for two hours. It entertains me to wreck your world.”
When Corbin was first called up to the main roster, he was sent to SmackDown Live to make a name for himself. After two years on the blue brand, the former United States champion was drafted to the flagship show, Monday Night Raw.
The interview went on to ask him about the differences between the two shows:
“There is a difference. The locker room is different. The atmosphere is different. What threw me off the most was having to work on Fridays now. Because I go Friday, Saturday, Sunday and Monday. Then I go home on Tuesday. For the longest time I was doing Saturday, Sunday, Monday and Tuesday. That was honestly the biggest transition was figuring my week out based on the days I was home and the days I was on the road. The three hours is a little bit of a transition as well. It’s exciting though. It’s fun to have change.”
