Baron Corbin recently spoke with the folks from The Times-Picayune to promote tonight’s WWE Fastlane 2018 pay-per-view. Featured below are some of the highlights from the interview.
On his dream opponent for WrestleMania: “Growing up, I idolized Big Boss Man and Bam Bam Bigelow just because they were big guys who could move and were tough. I felt like they both rode motorcycles. And Bam Bam had his head tattooed. Those are the guys who really got me into wrestling. So one of those two at WrestleMania would be awesome. They brought me into this whole world as a kid, and it would be really cool to go to battle with them. It would make a really cool moment for me.”
On getting revenge on John Cena for costing him a title win after cashing in his Money In The Bank briefcase: “I think it would be good retribution [to cost Cena on Sunday]. To see the look on his face knowing his WrestleMania moment just got taken away, his dream of another WrestleMania championship match is taken away. It would make me feel good to know I played a role in taking his little dream.”
On possibly ruining the opportunity for fans to see the A.J. Styles vs. Shinsuke Nakamura dream match at WrestleMania 34: “How many people can say they walked into WrestleMania as the WWE champion? I would like to watch all the people cry that they don’t get AJ Styles vs. Shinsuke Nakamura. There’s a lot of gratification in that.”
