Baron Corbin

– WWE’s website has a new interview with Baron Corbin, who previously played for the NFL’s Arizona Cardinals practice squad, has three Golden Glove boxing titles and several grappling championships. Corbin commented on indie wrestlers coming into NXT and facing Samoa Joe at NXT “Takeover: Brooklyn” this weekend:

“I look at these guys that come in with a name, but it’s on the internet. It’s someone’s opinion. It’s created with these fan bases of people who are diehards and watched them with 12 or 15 people in a high school gym. They’re nobodies. I’m the real deal. The NFL, boxing, jiu-jitsu, I did that. I’m proven at what I can do.”

“I have a little respect for Joe. But I had just beat up two guys. He’s a veteran and knows how to take an opportunity. He got in a lucky sleeper hold. I’ve only used what I needed to in order to win. Now, I can go deeper into my arsenal. Samoa Joe doesn’t know what’s coming. That means I’m in control. You have no choice in what happens. If you’re in my way, you’re done.”
