Kofi Kingston, Xavier Woods and Big E have praised Baron Corbin, arguing that his character is currently the best thing in wrestling.
Since losing his crown to Shinsuke Nakamura, Corbin has been sporting dirty clothes and an unshaved head, complaining about financial issues.
According to Kingston, Woods and Big E, Corbin’s dedication to his character is what makes him so entertaining in this role. Speaking on The New Day: Feel The Power, Kingston pointed out that Corbin has to live with his current hairdo, saying:
“Corbin was backstage (at the most recent episode of Monday Night Raw). You (Big E) see him every week and I’ve talked about this, I can’t believe he has to walk around with this hair in real life. In actual life. He’s got to go home, he’s got to walk around the grocery store and have this hair, this real hair. He can’t cut it. I just saw it for the first time in person (backstage at Raw), man. Oh my God, it is something else. Someone needs to bring him a hat.”
Pitching for Corbin to pin Goldberg at WrestleMania, Woods said:
“Honestly, I know we don’t do wrestling on (the podcast), but I think that’s the best thing in wrestling right now. It’s hysterical to me. I am highly sports entertained every time I see this man. He is so committed, I can’t get enough of it. I can’t get enough. I need him to beat Goldberg at WrestleMania with $1,000,000 on the line.”
Feeling conflicted about his own character’s morals, Big E said:
“I’m supposed to be a good-natured human being out there. You know, somebody (fans) could really respect and root for, and they had me denigrating this man who’s– obviously, when you think about it, what are his sins? He lost his money. That’s not something to laugh about. He’s having issues at home. All the things that have happened to this, this man and I just pile on? That’s not the healthiest.”
Following last week’s episode of Raw, WWE shared a video to TikTok, capturing a sad day in the life of Baron Corbin. Business seemed to pick up for Corbin on SmackDown, as he managed to get his hands on Big E’s Money in the Bank briefcase.
