King Baron Corbin Embraces His Old-School Bad Guy Role

For some, being the villain or “heel” in pro wrestling is tough. For King Baron Corbin, he has taken a liking to it all.

Corbin has rose to the top of the heel role as the WWE heads into Royal Rumble this coming Sunday. There, he will face Roman Reigns in a Falls Count Anywhere match.

In a recent interview with The Houston Chronicle, Corbin explained why he enjoys getting on the nerves of the WWE Universe as the bad guy.

“I take pride in being a true heel,” Corbin said. “I take pride in really irritating people in that way so much that they are trying to make up words like ‘go away heat.’ This is actual irritation that I am causing people. And I am trying to do it as much as possible. I am getting the middle finger from an 8-year old kid to a 90-year old grandmother.

“I think it is fantastic and I think more people should take pride in that ability. And I do not take cheap shots to get it. I am not a guy that comes out and says ‘your town sucks.’ I take pride in everything I do and just getting that pure hatred from a fan.”

Corbin’s Run Started With Battle Royal Win

The 35-year-old Corbin signed with the WWE back in 2012 and made his debut at WrestleMania 32 by winning the Andre the Giant Memorial Battle Royal. Also, he is a former winner of the Money in the Bank ladder match and held the U.S. title.

Corbin captured the 2019 King of the Ring and took on the moniker of “King” shortly after. He has been involved in a feud with Reigns for the past several months.

“I think I have solidified myself as a main event player,” Corbin said. “I have been on TV for about two years now and it is hard to get to that main event level, let alone maintain it. And I have managed to stay there for two plus years because I’m always wanting to grow.

“I’m always wanting to learn. I’m always wanting to create new experiences. You always want to continue to kind of just elevate yourself and I think that’s important. A lot of guys fall behind when they start to believe they’re really good or they’ve reached the top or whatever it is. I’m just never satisfied.”
