Baron Corbin Wants To Wrestle For At Least 5-10 More Years Before Moving Into The Cooking World

Baron Corbin talks about life after wrestling and when he will start to make that transition.

Whether he's Happy Corbin, Constable Corbin, Bum-Ass Corbin, or any other iteration of his character, Baron Corbin enjoys his time in WWE. However, outside the ring, he is also a fan of the cooking world and plans to transition into that world when he is done inside the squared circle.

During a recent interview with Rick Ucchino for Bleav in Pro Wrestling, Corbin spoke about wanting to at least compete in the wrestling ring for another 5 years and how his connections at the Food Network might help him transition when the time comes.

“I've made some good buddies in the Food Network world. Chef Aaron May is one of my good buddies. He's always on Guy's Grocery Games. I want to have another five or ten years here in WWE, but eventually, like all athletes at some point, our body doesn't keep up with our minds anymore. We may think we can go and I want to be a guy who withdraws at the appropriate time. I don't want to be there too long,” Corbin said. “I don't want to jeopardize — because I feel like I've got good stigmas about me other than everybody hates me, but that I'm good in the ring. I'm smooth, I have a creative moveset, I make things look as violent as possible, and those kinds of things. So I don't want to be a step behind my mind physically. So I think, you know, in the next five or ten years, I'll probably have reached that point. Then I definitely want to get into that food world, whether it's Food Network, or it's my own YouTube stuff, or, you know, my buddy Aaron does a lot of stuff where he’s a guest, where he's a celebrity sponsored cook. You know, we were talking about doing the Food and Wine Festival together in Connecticut, because we're gonna go out there for WWE and raise some good money for Connor's Cure, so I'm going to cook out there that so there's a lot of really cool opportunities that food will bring when I'm done throwing people like Pat McAfee around in a ring.”

Baron Corbin is going to be throwing Pat McAfee around the ring as the two former teammates get in the ring at SummerSlam. Recently, Baron Corbin said “Peyton Manning is going to be rooting for me” during the match. Read more here.
