WWE's The New Day: Baron Corbin Is The Best Thing In Wrestling Right Now
Praise for Corbin from The New Day
Baron Corbin has become a dishevelled mess on WWE TV in recent months since he lost his King Of The Ring crown to Shinsuke Nakamura. The Lone Wolf also lost all of his money and his fate only looks set to get worse as he stole Big E's Money In The Bank briefcase and will likely incur the former Intercontinental Champion's wrath in the coming weeks.
Corbin's new character has received praise from WWE fans, and The New Day believe this version of The Lone Wolf is the best thing in wrestling right now.
Recorded before Corbin stole Big E's briefcase, Kofi Kingston said on New Day's podcast: "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."
Xavier Woods then added: "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.
"I am in tears whenever he is on screen and I don't know why his pain causes me so much joy. I think it's gonna be so mean for so long, now he just did a complete 180 like, in the span of 24 hours, you know?"
Beyond a feud with Big E, what is next for Corbin on WWE TV remains to be seen. The company previously filed a trademark for 'Happy Corbin' which could hint at a possible name change, though.
