• Baron Corbin Reveals Why Vince McMahon Is Pushing Him

During a recent appearance on Cheap Heat with Peter Rosenberg, SmackDown Superstar Baron Corbin explained why Vince McMahon is pushing him:

“I think Vince McMahon has been a fan of mine because I’m a big dude, a little bit old school, and have legitimate toughness. He sees motivation in certain guys and certain guys want to have it and some don’t. I knew it was a repackage.

It was a thing that I needed as well because there are just so many angry, bad guys, and I think we were trying to add some complexity to it and give it some different levels, and give me some different levels. And I think that is what people connect to.

When it’s just one thing, when one guy is just big and angry, there isn’t a connection. So let’s just find something where people can connect to as an audience, and that was where we came up with, ‘Constable Corbin’. Vince McMahon came up with it.

It was a funny process because he goes to me, ‘What do you see yourself wearing?’ I’m like, ‘Well, I don’t even know what a constable is.’ So I’m over here doing research and it’s like a bobby over in England, and I say, ‘Please don’t make me wear a stupid hat.’

I asked if he saw me wearing dress clothes and he goes, ‘No, not dress clothes,’ and then I came in two weeks later and he said that he sees me in dress clothes. So I was like, ‘Okay, I’m wearing dress clothes.'”
