Stop being bah humbug about Corbin. He has a massive upside, they just haven't given him anything worthwhile storyline wise. They utterly blew an opportunity to make him a solid mid card player last year after his Battle Royal win...I am hopeful they won't screw up this opportunity too.

I thought he was going nowhere when his Mania opener against Dean Ambrose got the biggest silence of the whole show.
And speaking of former Battle Royal winners who have flopped or done little since... doesnt that apply to them all ?
The Big Slow is a waste of time anyway these days, and apart from his tag team partnership with Sheamus, Cesaro hasnt had the singles run he deserves. And what were they thinking of with Mojo Rawley winning it this year!!

When he lost the briefcase it appeared he had heat, but apparently not now he's the new champion.

Creative absolutely trolled the live crowd with their WHERE'S YOUR BRIEFCASE chant by putting a title on him LOL

Can't say i'm happy with someone so dull getting a strap, but maybe this is the help he needs to be more entertaining.

Adders - i personally dont think giving him the strap will do anything for him

Now they have 2 utterly useless , charisma vacuums as champions - perhaps this is creative trolling everyone

bumping this after I made reference to him in regards to Survivor Series in the Cena thread...

Corbin is actually a very interesting person. the heat on him seems to have come from an open argument with one of the WWE doctors on concussions. further heat may have come on him since he's actually one of the people currently suing the NFL for concussion injuries and such. while he never got beyond the practice squad, he was in the NFL for the 2009 and 2010 seasons.

and, he's also been a boxer, a winner too.

so, he has picked perhaps the top three careers you can have in which concussion is a serious threat.

it appears he was given the title purely because the plan was for AJ to become WWE Champion, and they didn't have plans for anyone else to be US Champ. the fact he hasn't been booked that strongly as US Champ is likely a fallout from all the behind the scenes issues that have come up.

granted, he may have a different view of the effects of concussive injuries than a WWE doctor, but at this level, he needs to be smarter about raising those concerns. I understand he may have done so out of concern for his colleagues, since nothing seems to be coming out about anyone having an issue with him on a personal level. it will be interesting to see what exactly they do with him. I can't see the belt being put on Sin Cara, but then I couldn't see WWE taking the belt of Mahal until the Rumble at the earliest. the big issue becomes that, if a final spot were still open in the Survivor Series team, and Corbin does lose on Tuesday, he couldn't have turned the place down anymore, claiming to be a lone wolf as WWE royally fucked up that aspect of his character by having him so prominently in the front of the #UnderSeige attack.

it wouldn't surprise me if he goes in a post Mania purge. they changed his style, so he's dull in the ring, they changed his character so literally all that he has right now is the title around his waist.
