Yeah he suits the shaved head look, actually makes him look pretty bad ass. Much better than the horrible dated look of long hair with the big receding patch.

This is a good spot for Corbin, it’s a prominent position which will allow him to develop his promo skills further. It’s clear the McMahons are high on him and there doesn’t seem to be much for him to do feud-wise right now so it’s a good move. Might even lead to a match with Kurt Angle which would be a great rub for Corbin.

You're right, Corbin didn't need to be on TV. Thankfully he was and his appearance has been well received, as well as getting people talking on social media and encouraging further investment in both his overall character and current storyline.

Baron Corbin is on a different level with this current gimmick

He now can be overly confident - his promos seem alot better than they used to be

Still dont recall anyone kicking out of the end of days

I agree - when i was watching the match i was thinking about it again - its fresh to see especially in an era where finishers are hit multiple times quite often without a pinfall to follow

Hope he hits it on someone like Strowman to really sell how big a move it is

Corbin has impressed me with his heel work in this new Constable of Raw role, he’s obnoxious and really unlikeable and getting decent heat, the only small concern is if he’s getting genuine heat or ‘go away’ heat.

He’s getting plenty of tv time and him sucking up to Stephanie and singing happy birthday to her was very comical and a good example of him being a obnoxious heel.

Only thing I don’t like is him wrestling in office clobber, I’ve always hated wrestlers wearing normal clothes in the ring it makes no sense and must be uncomfortable, why wouldn’t you just change for your match like everyone else who wears normal gear? I guess it does just play into his new character a little more but I just hate it.

I agree with fletch he should change into ring gear for any wrestling matches or if he's forced into a match straight away at least use that as an excuse for the loss.

Otherwise I don't care for Corbin he's gotten a bit better and I'm glad he's shaved his head but he just doesn't appeal to me.

I've been warming to Corbin lately. He's pretty good in his role... he still could improve a lot, but he was so bad before, that I'm satisfied just to see him improving.

Quote Seth Rollins (c) vs. Baron Corbin: This one is a TLC match for Rollin's IC Title, and Heath Slater is the referee. Corbin and Rollins trade strikes in the opening moments. Corbin looks for a suplex but Rollins fights out. Corbin dumps Rollins out to apron and then he gets in Slater's face, and Slater steps out to ringside. Rollins comes flying off the top with a clothesline on Corbin, and Corbin rolls outside for a breather. Corbin brings a chair in the ring and repeatedly bashes it on Rollins. They fight out to ringside and Rollins fights back and drops Corbin, then he brings a ladder in the ring. Corbin comes in and fights back and drops Rollins with a clothesline. Corbin sets up the ladder but Rollins knocks him down. Rollins climbs up top and looks for a shot off the middle rope, but Corbin knocks him out of mid-air. Rollins comes back and repeatedly bashes a chair over Corbin. Corbin rolls outside and Rollins hits a dive on him, but when Rollins goes for a second dive, Corbin catches him and chokeslams Rollins through a table. Corbin gets back in the ring and starts climbing the ladder, but Rollins gets in and knocks him off. Rollins looks for a chair shot on Corbin, but Corbin ducks and Rollins accidentally hits Slater. Corbin throws Rollins outside and follows him out. Corbin looks for the Deep Six on the floor, but Rollins escapes and throws Corbin into the ring steps. Rollins boots Corbin in the face, then lays him on a table at ringside. Rollins goes up to the top rope, and hits a frogsplash off the top on Corbin through the table on the floor. Rollins gets back in the ring and starts climbing the ladder, but Heath Slater gets in the ring and it looks like he's going to push over the ladder. Rollins yells at Slater, and Slater pushes the ladder over and Rollins crashes into the ropes. Slater helps Corbin get on the ring in his feet, and Corbin climbs the ladder. Rollins gets back in the ring and drops Slater, then he grabs Corbin off the ladder and powerbombs him through a table leaning in the corner. Rollins superkicks Slater, then he curb stomps Corbin. Rollins climbs the ladder and grabs his IC Title belt to win the match.
Winner & still Intercontinental Champion: Seth Rollins

 
Crowd attendances have been baron.
 
Raw ratings for months whilst he's been booked so prominently have been baron.
 
The amount of enjoyable segments on Raw have been baron.
 
Vince giving him the ring name of the youngest son of his best mate Donald Trump and what the word baron can mean, fits perfectly.
