• SmackDown Star Recalls Getting Death Threats After A WWE PPV

During a recent appearance on the Out of Character podcast, SmackDown Superstar Baron Corbin talked about getting death threats after he hit Becky Lynch with his finishing move, the End Of Days, at WWE Extreme Rules 2019, during a mixed tag team match for the RAW Women’s Championship & the Universal Championship.

Here’s what Corbin said:

“When I hit Becky with the End of Days, I was getting death threats. On a regular basis.

95% of [critics] are on the internet or safely behind somewhere they can’t be accessed. Roman [Reigns] said it the best one time, that he’s never met a hater in real life. That’s the same kind of thing with me.

It would be funny if at the airport, all the guys hanging there for autographs were like open your Twitter and let me see if you’re blocked or not to decide if you can get an autograph.

It’s funny, it’s the cool thing to do now in life, people just want to drag people down, it makes them feel good but my whole career has been that way with social media, but now it’s 10x with the way the world is. You got to have thick skin, man.”
