During an interview with WWE for their Breaking Ground documentary, Corey Taylor and Corey Graves - a former NXT wrestler turned commentator - seemed to be at odds at who would be the main attraction at this weekend’s upcoming super-festival.

Following this interview with Graves, the Slipknot lead would then speak to Baron Corbin before the wrestling event took place, and those two didn't seem to get on either.

Taylor Punched Corbin

Well, that didn't sit too well with Taylor, who punched Corbin in the face, sending the giant staggering.

Samoa Joe capitalised on the punch, throwing Corbin into the ring steps before rolling his opponent back in the ring and applying the Kokina Clutch, which Corbin passed out to.

Joe then celebrated his win with Corey Taylor, raising the rocker's arm in the air. You can watch it here...

Who knows, maybe this will lead to us seeing more of Corey at NXT over the next few months.
