Vince McMahon Has High Praise for Baron Corbin

Posted By James Walsh on 04/13/18



In the latest edition of The Wrestling Observer Newsletter (via Wrestling Inc), it was revealed that out of all WWE talents not in the main event, Vince McMahon is still highest on Baron Corbin and sees him as a future major star for the company.

WWE originally had plans for Corbin after Wrestlemania 33 last year, but those ended up not coming to fruition. The plan at the time was to give him new music and push him hard, as evidenced by his Money in the Bank win, but he eventually lost his cash-in and followed it up with a brief US title run. He was in the Andre the Giant Memorial Battle Royal this year but didnít win.

Corbin vs. Shinsuke Nakamura vs. AJ Styles for the WWE title is being promoted as the Smackdown main event for Extreme Rules on July 15 in Pittsburgh.
