Baron Corbin: Triple H Loves Bad Ass Characters That Can Hold Their Own

Baron Corbin comments on his current direction.

Baron Corbin was drafted to WWE SmackDown during the WWE Draft after a NXT run that saw him win the NXT Tag Team Titles alongside Bron Breakker.

Kevin Nash On Booking WCW: I Said, 'I'll Help.' I Should've Said, 'Let's Go To A Strip Club.'

Corbin is now split from Breakker, who was drafted to WWE Raw, and carving his own path on SmackDown.

"Triple H being in charge, he's a guy that really likes bad ass guys and characters that can hold their own and guys who, you cross them in the street, 'I don't know who this is, but I know I wouldn't want to fight them.' He likes that mentality and likes the aggressive nature of people. It's getting me back to my roots, which I love and I'm excited for," Corbin said on the Johnny Dare Show.

Corbin competed in WWE King of the Ring tournament, losing to Carmelo Hayes in the first round.
