Key Reason Behind Baron Corbin's WWE Push Reportedly Revealed

Vince McMahon likes bald tattooed men...

Baron Corbin has another chance at the WWE Universal Championship at the Extreme Rules pay-per-view on July 14 when he and Lacey Evans face Seth Rollins and Becky Lynch in a Last Chance Winners Take All mixed tag team match (obviously, if the heels win then Evans also gets Lynch's Raw Women's title).

Corbin's main event level push has come under a lot of scrutiny over the last few months, but it appears a key reason for it happening on a consistent basis is a very simple one.

According to those on Wrestling Observer Radio (via Ringside News), Corbin's position at the top of the card comes down to his looks. Apparently, Vince McMahon sees Baron as a man who women would swoon for and that's why he is continually used in such a prominent role.

Corbin has been a mainstay at the top of the card for much of the last year. After taking on the role of General Manager Elect of Monday Night Raw, and then taking the blame the from the McMahon family for the show's faltering ratings, Corbin feuded with The Shield at the start of the year before putting Kurt Angle into retirement at WrestleMania 35.
