An out-of-character Baron Corbin was part of the WWE Backstage show on FS1 last night to talk about a variety of subjects including his current feud with Roman Reigns and sharing the ring with The Rock.
CM Punk was also in the discussion to help grill Corbin and Punk said that if you’re a good enough bad guy, fans will eventually love you. “Do you feel any of that or is it just pure hatred?” Punk questioned Corbin. Corbin didn’t have to think twice for the reply. “It’s pure hatred,” he said, drawing a chuckle from the panel.
Punk also went over the angle where Corbin threw dog food at Reigns last week on Smackdown and wondered if it was real dog food because knowing Vince McMahon, he probably would have wanted real dog food. Corbin confirmed Punk’s theory and told him that it was “1000% dog food.”
The topic of The Rock also came up. Corbin was part of the opening segment with Corbin and Becky Lynch of the first-ever Smackdown on FOX and it’s something that Corbin is very proud of, saying it was truly a special moment because he shared the ring with an icon.
“If you’re ever around him…there’s something about him…that dude is special,” Corbin said, adding that even taking the Rock Bottom and People’s Elbow was very special and cool moment for him. “Now I owe him a beating!”
