• Baron Corbin Comments On Wrestlers Blaming WWE For Their Failure
During a recent appearance on Not Sam Wrestling podcast, “The Lone Wolf” Baron Corbin talked about fans saying wrestlers are misused on the WWE main roster, wrestlers blaming WWE for their failure & more.
Below are the highlights:
On fans saying WWE misuses wrestlers:
“What’s crazy is when people say, ‘I don’t want these guys to get called up so that they can be misused.’ Nobody is being misused. They’re going to be given opportunities; they’re either going to make them successful or not, that is just the way it is. There is a reason why NXT and Triple H has built an amazing thing down there because it gets guys ready to come up here [to the main roster].
He’s getting guys ready to come to the main roster and sometimes people get called up they may not be absolutely ready or whatever the situation didn’t fit the way that they originally thought it would be, but it’s just going to take time to rebuild or figure it out, which is on the guys. When they get called up it is up to the guys to find success. John Cena is somebody who has always preached that. It’s on you, it’s not on anyone else.
If guys are being misused it’s not anybody’s fault but their own. They have to find an avenue to get successful, to get creative, to pitch ideas, and it’s hard because you do get lost in the shuffle here. There are a lot of guys that I think do great things when given the opportunity but it’s all about fighting and finding that opportunity.”
On wrestlers blaming WWE for their failure:
“That’s a sad story for a lot of people nowadays. If something doesn’t work it’s always someone else’s fault or nobody wanted them to do it. It’s just one of those things, it’s like if you really wanted to get something and really go, people are going to appreciate it even if it takes longer than expected.
I had hoped to be World Champion by now…it’s taken me three and a half years. It’ll come, it’s just going to take that grind. Some guys have been doing it for six months and are like well, it’s not going to work out for me because I’m not champion.
It’s a grind. Anything worth doing is a grind so it’s that kind of thing where you can’t feel sorry for yourself and you have to keep pushing.”
