Possible change for Baron Corbin and why people in WWE are said to like him

Baron Corbin lost the “King” gimmick to Shinsuke Nakamura on the June 18th 2021 edition of Friday Night Smackdown. WWE recently filed a trademark for the term “Happy Corbin” so it appears that WWE is going in a new direction with Corbin’s character.

During the We’re Live Pal! podcast on F4WOnline.com, Andrew Zarian discussed how WWE feels about Corbin…

“Baron Corbin is beloved in that company. Maybe not by the fans but I can tell you from a former writer one time told me that he is one of the most pleasant people to work with because he will not be combative and he works with you on stuff. And us as fans we look at this and we’re like ‘ah, another Baron Corbin match’ but his heat was so negative where it’s now turned into normal heat in a weird way.” (quote courtesy of WrestlingNews.co)
