With rumours suggesting that Seth Rollins may return to WWE as a face, The Authority will likely be looking for a new protégé to mould into one of their own and they should look no further than Baron Corbin.
Since his debut on the main roster, he has defeated everyone in his path and has been involved in a feud with Dolph Ziggler.
Just like Kevin Owens, Corbin is a full on heel, and yet, he is winning crowds over wherever he competes.

Opting for a more sinister gimmick in comparison with heels such as Owens and The Miz, Corbin has an air of mystique surrounding him. He is a man of a few words and yet every time he’s given time on the mic, he really stands out, presenting a fearsome, egotistical and yet likeable personality.
He backs up his word with brutal action, literally destroying other superstars in the process.
Therefore, considering The Authority is slowly reintroducing itself, owing to Stephanie McMahon’s confrontation with Shane McMahon, Triple H competing in house shows and the news from Vince McMahon at WWE Payback, it is fair to assume that they will begin to start approaching certain superstars with tempting offers.
Baron Corbin would be perfect as the ‘new guy’ in The Authority. He’s a superstar to be taken seriously, and this change would see him receive a legitimate push whilst also presenting a move which falls in line with his heel character.
This could also provide the perfect opportunity to put Seth Rollins over with the fans as a face, as he could feud with Corbin and effectively sever his ties with The Authority in an organic way.
