Booker T’s opinion on Baron Corbin returning to WWE NXT

11 months ago By Sports Desk

Baron Corbin’s Resurgence in WWE NXT Gains Positive Reception From WWE Hall of Famer & Current NXT Commentator Booker T.

Baron Corbin’s Comeback in WWE NXT: From Main Roster Struggles to Prominence and Surprising Crowd Reactions

Baron Corbin, the wrestler known for his tough journey through WWE’s main roster, has discovered a revitalized sense of purpose on “WWE NXT.” Since his return to the gold brand earlier this year, he engaged in a challenging match for the NXT Championship at the NXT Gold Rush event in June. This shift to NXT has reignited Corbin’s career, granting him a prominent role on the brand.

One particular episode at NXT Great American Bash saw Corbin face Olympic gold medallist Gable Steveson in a match that ultimately ended in a double count-out. Although the crowd’s reaction to the outcome was mixed, an interesting twist occurred during the match itself – Baron Corbin, previously known for his villainous persona, received cheers from the Texas audience. In contrast, Steveson faced jeers and chants criticizing him as not living up to WWE’s other Olympic champion, Kurt Angle.

Commentator Booker T’s Praise for Corbin’s Resurgence on “NXT”

The development of Corbin’s character and the surprising crowd reaction has been noted by commentators and wrestling enthusiasts alike. Booker T, a commentator on “NXT,” praised Corbin’s current run on the brand during a recent episode of “The Hall of Fame” podcast. He commended the video packages that spotlighted Corbin and emphasized how crucial it was for Corbin to have meaningful opportunities after appearing to lose direction on the main roster.

Booker T remarked, “On the main roster, sometimes you can get stuck in a rut and find those moments where…I hate this term right here, ‘We ain’t got nothing for you.’ When you started hearing that, it’s a problem.” He expressed his satisfaction with Corbin’s return to “NXT,” allowing him to reinvent himself and demonstrating that the character and packages had a substantial impact on Corbin’s rejuvenation.

Baron Corbin’s Acknowledgment of Audience Support and Personal Evolution

Corbin himself shed light on his positive reception during an interview with Adrian Hernandez. He shared insights into the support he had been receiving from both fans and NXT’s decision-makers. Corbin shared, “The folks in charge at NXT have given me a lot of control and also let me step back when needed. At the Great American Bash event, I noticed that the crowd was cheering for me… It matters. I believe the audience, even if they’re frustrated with me sometimes, also want me to do well.”

The response from the crowd reflects a desire to see Corbin flourish in his endeavors. After years of dedicating himself to WWE’s main roster without crossing certain boundaries or voicing complaints, Corbin believes it’s now his time to shine as himself, unapologetically. This recent evolution in his character, backed by the audience’s genuine reactions, showcases his determination to embrace a new chapter in his wrestling journey.
