Baron Corbin opened fire at The Miz when it was announced the two would square off at Survivor Series in a champion (Intercontinental) vs. champion (United States) match. When he finally responded, Miz laid waste to “The Lone Wolf.” Knowing he had to return fire, Corbin went for the throat:
"Miz, I saw what you said, man, and I want to apologize. I didn't need to bring your wife into this. I didn't realize how touchy of a subject it would be for you, but I understand it. I understand that when you have to live in the shadow of someone like her, or you need her to protect you from the big, bad bullies in the world and now she's sitting at home that's hard. I understand that. So I apologize.
"You know, you talked about relevance and making your championship the most relevant thing. When someone like your wife is begged to come out of retirement to make you and your career relevant again, I understand your anger and frustration. So I apologize.
"I also want to tell you congratulations. A baby girl, man, that's a great thing. It's going to be such a cool experience the first time she looks up at you and calls you 'daddy,' just like at Survivor Series when I beat you into nothing and you look up and you call me 'daddy.' Ha ha."
My oh my, this is good stuff. And there are still over two weeks until they actually get in the ring for their match!
