On the latest episode of Wrestling Observer Radio Dave Meltzer noted that it is almost certain that Baron Corbin is being punished by WWE management for his recent actions on social media. For those that don’t follow Corbin, he got into a heated argument with Meltzer on Twitter and has also been tweeting fans things that the company hasn’t really approved of.
Meltzer said “He’s definitely being punished, there isn’t any question now” and added the match was purposely booked to make Corbin look like an “afterthought” not giving Corbin a chance to showcase good match.
Meltzer believes Bobby Roode could possibly be called up to SmackDown Live to take Corbin’s place as top heel.
