With Baron Corbin the acting general manager of RAW - and hoping to become the permanent GM at Tables, Ladders and Chairs - it's fair to say he does things a little differently than Kurt Angle.

Angle was the fan favourite general manager than did things the right way. Corbin, on the other hand, has a habit for abusing his power.

If the former Money in the Bank winner can defeat Braun Strowman at TLC, he will permanently take over from Kurt Angle moving forward.

However, it does seem like Corbin has been trying to fit in as many dastardly acts as possible in the past few weeks, which could be a signal he is going to lose at the next pay-per-view.

Another textbook example of Corbin's power crazy ways came to the fore on Monday night when the Lone Wolf put Rhyno in a math with Heath Slater.

The caveat? The loser would be fire from Monday Night Raw.

Rhyno, 43, would lose to his tag team partner and quietly retire from wrestling during the commercial break.

While it's not totally certain that this isn't a work, the quiet nature of the announcement and the unlikelihood that creative has anything major planned for Rhyno leads us to believe it is legitimate.

Rhyno was a big player in the original EC under Paul Heyman where he won the ECW title once and was the Television champion twice.

He made the jump to WWE in 2001 and aligned himself with Edge and Christian, playing a significant role in helping them win TLC 2 at WrestleMania 17.

Rhyno worked with all of WWE's top stars during his inaugural year with the company and his Gore was one, if not the best Spears the business has ever seen.


During the Alliance angle, Rhyno was the United States champion but when that storyline came to a close, Rhyno struggled to make his way to the top of the card.

After leaving the company in 2005, Rhyno would return 10 years later, this time showing up in NXT and gradually making his way back to the main roster where he would win tag gold with Slater on SmackDown.

During the decade he spent away from the company, he won the TNA world title, too.
