Good for him and good to hear, in this day and age I think any sort of reaction is a good one. It sucks when you have PPVs and there is literally no heat for most of the show.
Never imagined the day I would hear this used as a positive.Baron Corbin reminds me of The Great Khali. He has that intense look that is missing in wrestlers today. Wrestlers aren't suppose to look like Average Joes. He also continues to bring it and prove everybody wrong. I hope he does win it all. God bless America and Baron Corbin.
Imagine being delusional enough to blame the low numbers on Seth Rollins and to imply that Baron Corbin is a "draw" (let alone falsely claiming that he's more over) :mj4MSG is the litmis test for whether someone is over or not.
MSG was sold out unlike the rest of the year where only a niche fanbase go to shows and the arenas have to be blanketed. there was casuals and they didn't respond to the niche favorites.
WWE gets about 4,000-5,000 people for Raw. 5,000 x 52 shows a year = 260,000 fans.
Booking for the 2 million viewers at home shouldn't be directed by a niche of 260,000 fans or the less than 500,000 on the internet that know the inner workings of the business.
That's why there is a disconnect between what fanatics in arenas cheer and chant for and the casuals/viewers at home as we see with ratings.
While Rollins gets cheered off and on every week by 5,000 in arenas.(since it's not every single week, that means 125,000 average fans a year), the 120,000 fans shouldn't be catered over the 500,000-1 million fans who left during his push.
Remember ticket prices are high hence only fanatics go, they will pay any price.
I think Corbin gets heat because he was apart of shows with Rollins that drew low, and people gave him the heat for it when it's proven Rollins was drawing the lowest ratings in history(no exaggeration) without Corbin.
I never said Corbin is a draw. he is over with the remaining viewers.Imagine being delusional enough to blame the low numbers on Seth Rollins and to imply that Baron Corbin is a "draw" (let alone falsely claiming that he's more over)
Rollins has out-popped Corbin consistently over the past couple of years, and he's (almost) always received better/louder reactions by multiple crowds too.I never said Corbin is a draw. he is over with the remaining viewers.
Rollins is the fault for the low numbers, why is he involved in 4 of the lowest hours in Raw history?
Why does viewer retention decrease when he happens to be in the 3rd hour?
Corbin is more over than Rollins. his heel heat draws more than Rollins babyface sympathy.
I don't like either wrestler, so I favor neither.
Corbin is terrible, just terrible. There's absolutely nothing special about him. He's sloppily-built, unimposing, boring, bald, and as bland as white bread. He's not going to attract any new fans to the product. I can't for the life of me understand why they continue to push him.
I always thought they should do an angle where he suffers burns on half of his face, ala Two Face from the Batman films. That way, he could wear some sort of mask or cloak and look much more imposing, given his size. It would also give him a much more interesting character.
Rollins gets cheered, not every week but lets say he gets cheered every week.Rollins has out-popped Corbin consistently over the past couple of years, and he's (almost) always received better/louder reactions by multiple crowds too.
Corbin is certainly not more over than Rollins :lmao
Wait... did I understand you correctly? You said that Baron Corbin is jacked? :lmaoHe’s jacked and could shoot destroy 95% of the roster lmao. Strowman, Lesnar, and Lashley would be the only guys I’d take in a fight over him. In his beater he looks badass too. His character isn’t pushed as one to “draw new fans”. You don’t get bitch slapped, guitars smashed on you, geeked out to people who are supposed to be the guys to draw new viewers, have the biggest losing percentage in the company, ALL while getting no commuppance if you’re in that role. His role is as jobber to the stars and always has been. They’re FINALLY giving him a string of wins since he returns and what? Oh look at that! He’s getting cheered in the garden and people on this forum are finally saying he’s good in ring now. Corbin has been consistently good DESPITE the garbage they give him. That’s a sign of a good professional wrestler. If they actually did get fully behind him (they will by next year) he’s going to be a solid and serviceable top heel champ.

I still don`t see a victory over Gable and a postponed crowning ceremony helping him lot. Let`s see what they make out of it in SD ...I watched the show. Corbin got cheered throughout the match and won to a pop. If WWE edited their Youtube video its because...oh right, because he's a heel. Don't question something you didn't even watch live.
