WWE Rumour: Baron Corbin Almost Got Fired from the Company
Things have drastically changed for Baron Corbin over the last few months. The man who was considered as the future of the company has now become one of the other few guys in the locker room who has the potential, but we all know, they will not make it big on the main event scene.
Baron Corbin had all the tools with his heavyweight body and physical strength that helped him to win the Andre the Giant Memorial Battle Royal in 2016. It was the supposed kick-off for his push on the main roster. At that time, he was just a rookie player from the NXT roster who was waiting for a big break.
Later, he was drafted to the Smackdown Live brand to get a gradual push to the main event picture. As a part of the same, he won the Money in the Bank briefcase, this year. So, it was evident that at one point, we would crown a new WWE Champion in him. However, things went worse for him since then.
Quite surprisingly, he lost the Money in the Bank briefcase just five days before the Summerslam event and became the only third superstar in the history of the company to waste the opportunity. It was the first indication that he might have lost the edge due to a backstage heat. The situation was discussed by Dave Meltzer of Wrestling Observer Newsletter recently where the veteran suggested that Baron Corbin might have got even fired for his actions.
Meltzer confirmed that The Lone Wolf had an altercation at backstage with either one of the officials or a prominent superstar like John Cena that landed him straight into the doghouse. As a result, we should not be surprised if the company would have released him. Check out the comments from the wrestling journalist:
“Only thing I can say is that there was an incident, it wasn’t anything reported, nothing in the ring, not related to Twitter or talent, and they changed booking plans. He’ll be fine. Vince loves him. If not, he’d have been fired.”
Corbin’s actions towards Meltzer were also received negative reactions. He was much arrogant which was quite intolerable by the creative heads. As a result, his spot as the WWE Champion was taken away and he is now booked in a United States Championship picture.
