5. Baron Corbin Reveals How Triple H Told Him He Was Making His WWE Main Roster Debut At WrestleMania 32
During a recent appearance on the Talk Is Jericho podcast, Mr. Money In The Bank Baron Corbin discussed his WWE main roster debut happening at WrestleMania 32. Below is what he said:
“I mean, that was crazy and that was really funny. It was a moment I’ll never forget because we had done TakeOver in Dallas. And I thought I had a decent match that night. It wasn’t my favorite match, Austin Aries, it wasn’t my favorite body of work and I was kind of just frustrated, if you will, because it was one of those things, ‘man, it could have been so much better.’ And Hunter pulled me in a back room and I said, ‘oh, no! He thinks the same thing!’ And he never breaks typing on his cell phone to tell me this, but he’s like, typing on his phone, he looks up, he goes, ‘hey, tomorrow, you’re going to be in the André The Giant Memorial Battle Royal.’ And I was like, ‘what?’ And he goes, ‘you’re called up to the main roster’ and he just walked out.
I was like, ‘what the hell? How are you going to just tell me that in the middle of a text message and then walk out into the other room?’ It was such a crazy rush of emotions. Like, all that hard work paid off.”
