WWE star Baron Corbin recently joined the Johnny Dare Morning Show for an in-depth conversation about all things pro-wrestling, which included the former King of the Ring winner’s thoughts on Triple H taking over as head of WWE creative due to Vince McMahon’s retirement. Highlights from the interview are below.
Says Triple H’s success as a booker is due to him being a top star as a wrestler:
“He thrived during the Attitude Era … I think he’s bringing some of that attitude and pushing the envelope, and bringing the aggressiveness back to WWE, and I think it’s an awesome thing. He wants to keep the entertainment as well, that’s the art, the art is to stay entertaining. I am not just a big bad guy that’s tough and beats everybody up, how can we do it and be entertaining, and funny, and witty? But then, also you want people to be in the audience and go, ‘Dude, I want nothing to do with that guy in an alleyway.’”
Calls putting together a wrestling show an art:
“It’s an art, and I think Triple H is one of the absolute best at that because I think he helped create that. It’s pretty awesome to have him putting his touch on a lot of things and really giving us some stuff that’s different … I think it’s getting people excited, and it’s really helping it thrive again, and being back in front of people and all of that, it’s special right now.”
