Baron Corbin's Evaluation (2015)

His name is Baron Corbin and Cageside Seats readers have reported back on what they love and loathe about "The Lone Wolf". Here's the full evaluation.

What you loved:

  1. Presence - At 6'8"/275 lbs. it's tough not to notice Corbin. That alone is worth something in this business.
  2. Finisher - As long as he can consistently hit the "End of Days" on big guys, it's a solid finisher.
  3. Potential - He just needs a little more time, but as a heel, Corbin has a pretty high ceiling.
  4. Entrance - Great use of spotlights, simple and effective way to introduce the big man.
  5. Look - Has a very natural feeling gimmick, along with his dead stare.

Best comment comes via niodox:

"Presence – Does a really good job of just making you at least look at him when he showed up."


What you loathed:

  1. Squash Matches - Far too many quick matches early in his career. Creatively, they are trying to set the tone that he's a monster, but we get it, enough already.
  2. Bull Dempsey Feud - It started okay with the stare-downs, but went completely south after that. Their "No DQ" match was anything but that. Dempsey never had a prayer in any of their awful matches.
  3. His Face - Some of you want to punch it, others are confused by the facial expressions he makes.
  4. In-Ring - We haven't had a chance to see too many long matches, but Corbin still has a fairly limited moveset. His longest televised match, to-date, was last night against Rhyno at 7 minutes and 13 seconds.
  5. Physique - He just needs to tighten it up a little bit, especially in the stomach region. Some thought the same of Big Cass, and last night he looked like all the hard work is finally paying off, dude looked huge...and you can't. teach. that! Bada-Boom! Realest guys in the room! How you doin'?!, sorry.
