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.

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.

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 - 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

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

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.

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.

I just happen to think someone on a more even level to Kurt career wise would be better as eyes and ears for Stephanie.
 
Quote RAW opens up with all of RAW's participants in the upcoming Money In The Bank ladder matches in the ring. They're all standing on ladders set up in the ring, and then RAW GM Kurt Angle comes out to give them a pep talk. Baron Corbin quickly comes out to interrupt, and Corbin is sporting a new shaved-head look. Corbin takes issue with Angle, and Alexa quickly interrupts and starts talking trash. This leads to all the wrestlers on the ladders in the ring bickering back and forth, until Strowman starts threatening Kevin Owens. Owens complains that he can't perform when Strowman is constantly threatening him, but Strowman doesn't care. Strowman says he plans to climb the ladder, grab the contract, and take the WWE Universal Title from Brock Lesnar. Everyone starts arguing until Alexa screams and they get quiet. Alexa says they need to stop acting like the Real Housewives of WWE. Alexa says she picks Strowman to win the men's match, and Banks picks her mixed-match challenge partner Finn Balor. They all start arguing again until Strowman screams "enough," and says this Sunday somebody is gonna get these hands. Strowman's music hits and everyone eyes each other down from their respective ladder set up in the ring.
 
More of the same old. The segment didn't need Corbin coming out and name dropping a Mcmahon.
 
My one positive for him is he looks much better hiding his receeded hairline by going for the skinhead look.
