Happy Baron Corbin is here

Remember a couple months back when word got out that WWE trademarked “Happy Corbin” and we all wondered what that could possibly mean for the future of Baron Corbin?

Wonder no longer.

Happy Corbin is here, as seen on this week’s episode of Friday Night SmackDown:

After months of Corbin being a sad sack, begging for money, resorting to thievery, being called “bum ass Baron” by Pat McAfee, and just generally being humiliated over and over, the man found some redemption in the form of one hell of a run of luck in Sin City. Indeed, WWE hit Las Vegas for SummerSlam this year and it was there that his luck turned around. He hit big enough to fix all his financial troubles, get his wife to let him back in the house, and just generally make him a happy man.

He attempted to pay Big E for the Money in the Bank contract, offering him as much as $100,000 for it, but E was smart enough to turn him down and send him packing under the threat of wiping that newfound smile off Baron’s face.

Gee, I wonder how long “Happy Corbin” will last.
