During an interview with The Houston Chronicle, Baron Corbin discussed using dog food in his current storyline with Roman Reigns and his track record in the Royal Rumble. Here are the highlights:
On His Rivalry With Roman Reigns:
I have been lucky that the last few guys I have really been in a ring with have been a fan favorite from Roman to Seth (Rollins) to the Rock. I take a sense of pride in helping people love those guys. Every once in a while you used to get the ‘Let’s go Roman,’ ‘Roman Sucks’ chants. Now, no one is saying ‘Roman sucks.’ It is always ‘Corbin sucks.’ But when you have a guy like that who the people love. It makes my job very easy. I can just stand there and yell at a little kid and say ‘Look at your hero. He is crawling on the ground like a little baby.’ And they lose their mind. When you have a guy they truly care about, it is awesome.
Definitely covering him in dog food was a blast aside from the smell – it got on me as well. But that level of guttural hatred that I heard when we were doing it was awesome and the moment was right. I think it was old school and it was just nasty. And I think outside the box. It was a lot of fun to do.
On The Royal Rumble:
I do like it because it keeps you on your toes. There are so things that go awry and stuff like that when you have so many competitors in the ring and it’s exciting and stressful but it’s fun. You have to keep your head on a swivel because you don’t always know who’s coming out next and whatever it may be. You have 29 other people trying to get rid of you. I think it’s awesome. It’s just a huge overload of stress and excitement and that’s what makes it fun.
