WWE NXT star Baron Corbin recently spoke to Alex Obert of the Journey of a Frontman website, here are some highlights;

Alex Obert: You made your official NXT debut last month at Takeover 2, how were the finishing touches put on to fully prepare you and establish your character?

Baron Corbin: Billy Gunn, Bill DeMott and Dusty Rhodes all helped me find myself and how to express it to people so they understand. I know that I’ve played with a few other characters that I thought fit me. When I sat down with Bill and Billy and Dusty, as well as Corey Graves, they had conversations with me about what am I into and what are the things I do. They wanted to know how that would relate to what I’m gonna do in the ring and how to translate that so that people understand this is who I am. You look at me, you see the tattoos and I ride a motorcycle. So how do we fit those things into who I am? There’s past endeavors including being a three-time Golden Glove Champion, we want people to understand that when I punch somebody, it’s gonna hurt.

Alex Obert: With your finisher, End of Days, how was that developed?

Baron Corbin: I watched a lot of wrestling and I started to watch a lot of Japanese-style. They do things a little differently. A guy here named Solomon Crowe, we were trying to think of something that would be devastating and original and we mixed some things I’d seen from some of the Japanese footage I watched. It’s something that requires a lot of strength. I know a lot of people can’t do it and won’t try it. That allowed me to stand out. End of Days is a lot of impact, it makes people open their eyes. It makes a statement.

Alex Obert: Though you are relatively new to the main roster, how has your time been competing at NXT live events?

Baron Corbin: I work pretty much every single live event. It gives me an opportunity to work with different people and see what they bring to the table. We want to put on an entertaining match and see who comes out the victor. I get to bounce around with different people and it keeps me on my toes because someone might surprise me with something. I want to know how I’m gonna react to that and it makes me always be prepared. That’s for sure. On recent live events, I’ve faced names such as Elias Sampson and Bull Dempsey. I’ve also faced CJ a few times. It kind of just varies all the time. I’ve been here for a little while now and I’ve had opportunities to work with Tyler Breeze and Sami at Wrestlemania Axxess. All of those opportunities just go into building me and my ability.

Alex Obert: Since not much is known about you yet, what do you have to say to those who are interested in you?

Baron Corbin: Hold on tight. I think that I’m gonna make an impact that will open a lot of eyes. And I’ve only started. I’m gonna make a lot of people really question what they just saw. I don’t get paid by the hour, I go out there and get it done and get out. That’s the way I want it to be. Just hold on tight because this is gonna be a killer ride.
