Baron Corbin is a wrestler on the Friday Night SmackDown brand but WWE is notorious for not really following its own rules. So it was no real surprise when he showed up out of nowhere on Monday Night Raw this week for a match with Drew McIntyre.
But why against McIntyre?
Corbin, so down on his luck and hard up for cash that he’s willing to listen to any offers for literally anything, was paid by Jinder Mahal to come to the red brand to deal with the biggest issue Mahal has right now. Corbin made clear that his wife has left him and he’s in such dire straits financially he was willing to risk getting his head cut off by a giant sword to get paid some extra cash.
Of course, Corbin would actually have to win, and he did not, because he sucks and, per McIntyre during the match, he smells bad. The troubles continue for poor Baron.
