Baron Corbin Thinks Not Working In Indies Is Nothing To Feel Bad About

This gimmick was likes by the fans and most of the fans praised it. But then WWE decided to change his gimmick once again and made him Happy Corbin. He won a lot of money in the casinos and he was now happy. He is still carrying this gimmick and it looks like he would be carrying this gimmick only from now on.

Fans did not like this gimmick as much as the previous one and a lot of fans requested WWE to give back the previous gimmick. But it had been reported that the gaming was invented by Vince McMahon so there is no chance of getting rid of it so soon. But Corbin is doing quite good in this gimmick. He is a natural heel, he is perfect in playing anything that is evil.

Recently he had a feud with his former tag team partner Madcap Moss where he did a very impressive job to put him over. It does not look like he would ever be pushed as a main event star but he will definitely be remembered as a WWE legend. Right now he is working with WWE Hall of Famer JBL.

“A lot of these guys, it’s a bragging right. Ten years, I’ve been wrestling for 15 years. Why is that a bragging right? I made a phone call, and the WWE brought me in for a tryout and signed me within the week. That’s how it works. I don’t need to go work for a hot dog and popcorn in your local gymnasium.

“That’s not what I do. It’s not a bragging right for me to go, ‘Ah, I drove around in my buddy’s Honda Civic for six hours to go to this show and then drive 12 hours to this show and the car broke down and we ran out of gas, and we didn’t money to eat. That’s not something you brag about.”
