HHH needs to stop playing "uncle" to Corbin

This was made most apparent at the HOF speech DX did, where at the end, HHH hand picked Corbin in the crowd and continuously chasing him around like an older brother would be picking on a younger brother. It made it all the more apparent why this bland, mediocre hack keeps getting pushed over guys who have actually have the total package in ability, promo and look (Corbin just has the ability/wrestling, promos and look are nothing remarkable).




I understand pushing younger talent but the politics backstage are obviously the driving force behind Corbin. When I look at people who actually have interesting characters and good promo ability, I think Elias, Roode, Ec3. I don't think of Corbin. I can recognize that he's improved, but I'm not going to pretend this guy is great or even that good. I'd describe myself as an anti-smark but I still don't get the appeal. As a top heel champion, he's basically going to be next Sheamus (without the physique).

Re: HHH needs to stop playing "uncle" to Corbin

How many guys in WWE today have a better overall package than Corbin? Not many really. The guys average at worst in every area, and is better than 90% on the mic.

At least he's not just another bland Indy flipper.
volde, Punkholic, Conor? and 12 others like this.

Couldn`t you start that thing earlier? The HOF was ages ago.

.......Yeah.

Corbin is in NXT, which is run by HHH, never gets past a certain level and likey never would have.

He goes to the main roster, run by Vince, and has gotten PPV main events this year. And we're trying to put this on HHH why?

Oh so that's why Corbin is being pushed? I didn't realize that was the reason behind it.

Re: HHH needs to stop playing "uncle" to Corbin

Maybe Corbin is getting pushed because he's the only heel on the men's side that actually tries to get heat?

Corbin had more potential with the 'Little fucks given' approach before he shaved his head and became a semi authority figure and suck up, I wish he'd go back that route.

You telling me that not doing flashy moves, refraining from applaudable promos, playing a heel in the ring and looking the part is a great way to be an effective heel?
