Why WWE is Backing Off of Baron Corbin

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.

Highly passionate MMA Journalist, and I've followed the sport ever since my favorite fighter, Vitor Belfort won the heavyweight tournament at UFC 12. After that I've tried to go to every local MMA event around the Gulf Coast and surrounding areas and decided to make it a point to have a career in some aspect in the fighting sport other than fighting in general (didn't want to ruin my face). I'm currently enrolled at Southeastern Louisiana University working towards a degree in Communication. I cover MMA, Boxing and Football for The Daily Star newspaper in my hometown of Hammond, Louisiana, in addition to working as a promotional writer for a local Boxing promotion known as BoxnCar and I cover boxing for 8countnews.com however SciFighting.com is my home. My main goal is to bring more publicity to MMA in my area and to the sport as a whole as all of us involved with the sport are merely scratching the surface and laying the foundation of what mixed martial arts competition will be further down the road.
