Mick Foley very impressed with Baron Corbin's main roster performances

Published Add your comment

Since winning the Andre the Giant Battle Royal at WrestleMania 32, Baron Corbin has made the jump to the main roster and is slowly establishing himself as a heel who could go for one of the minor championships in the WWE very soon.

The former NFL player has been part of the company now since August 2012, so almost four years. He's spent the vast majority of his time in NXT and has only recently been called up to wrestle on the main roster.

The Lone Wolf lost his first singles match on a WWE pay-per-view when he wrestled against Dolph Ziggler on the preshow of Payback. However, that feud looks set to continue into Extreme Rules later this month, and possibly beyond.

So far on the main roster, the former NXT superstar has displayed some good talent, using his size to his advantage with a lot of his moves, especially his End of Days finishing move. His performances have impressed many fans and critics alike, including WWE Hall of Famer Mick Foley.

The former WWE champion spent some time this week writing a Facebook post about Corbin, praising the superstar's time on the WWE main roster so far. He believes The Lone Wolf could go far within the company as well with the right booking.

He said: "BARON IS GOOD And he's getting better every week. Baron's not flashy, but he does a lot of little things well, and his ‪#‎EndOfDays‬ is among the most impressive finishers in the business. With the right focus from the company, and a few key feuds, I can see Baron going a long way in ‪#‎WWE‬."

Considering he lost his first pay-per-view match as a singles competitor, it hasn't been all that good for the Andre the Giant Battle Royal winner. That certainly is a setback for the superstar, as he looks to become a dominant force on the singles circuit.

If he is to go a long way in the WWE, he would need to pick up that first singles pay-per-view win soon, so expect him to come out victorious if he squares off against The Showoff at Extreme Rules, and in the feud overall if they do face each other once more at Money in the Bank next month.


He would need to pick up a singles title soon, and have a few key feuds as Foley said. The Intercontinental Championship picture looks in the better condition than the United States Championship picture, but including Corbin would mean too many superstars are involved in the IC title right now.

The US title would be a better route, and with current rumors speculating John Cena is eventually going to win it back, this wouldn't be a bad feud to help Corbin reach the next level, as Cena is one of the best workers in the WWE today.
