In an interview with The Bob and Tom Show, Baron Corbin discussed several topics, including his numerous tattoos, including the very first tattoo he's ever received, which he thinks is a bad one.
"My first one was terrible, it's Chinese symbol on my back, I hope it means 'Strength,'" Corbin said. "Then, I think I got a giant dragon on my leg, my legs are covered. Nobody gets to see my legs, but they' re covered, I got all kinds of stuff down there from Candy Man and Jack 'The Ripper,' portraits of my Dad and Grandpa."
When it comes to working in WWE's TV-PG rating world, Corbin admitted that, at times, it is tough to behave in a kid-friendly manner in the world of professional wrestling, especially for a heel character that Corbin portrays on SmackDown Live.
"Yeah, ya know, I tailor that [to] 'PG.' I mean with anything, emotions get high, we're very competitive with what we do, everybody wants to be the best, so, sometimes those emotions will get the best of you and you'll let a word fly and you'll hear about it later," Corbin said. "So, ya know, better to ask for forgiveness than permission, right?"
But Corbin said that what we see on television as far as his persona goes, it is as close to the real Baron Corbin as we'll get to see.
"I mean that attitude, that persona I carry is something I've always had with me, I mean, that's what made me successful, especially in football and is making me successful now," Corbin said. "In college, practice is draggin', Coach goes, 'Oh hey, go on over there and start a fight with one of the Linebackers.' Okay. So I'll go and start a fight with one of the Linebackers...It's just an attitude that really developed in me and now we just amplify it times 100 and make sure everybody understands what I do and what I'm about."
