WWE Star Baron Corbin seeks to be like John Cena and Roman Reigns by bringing back his “lone wolf” gimmick with some twist

This time, Baron Corbin has some tricks up his sleeve that may allow him to once again unleash his inner Lone Wolf. The former WWE champion has revealed his desire to revive elements of his popular gimmick from 2014 to 2018, which saw him become the André the Giant Memorial Battle Royal winner on his main roster debut at Wrestlemania 32.

King Corbin’s Quest for Grittiness: Can He Reach John Cena Levels of Emotional Rollercoaster in WWE?

Corbin recently spoke with Catch Club, stating that he wants to bring back the “grittiness” of his Lone Wolf character but with more dimensions. He believes that a successful character like John Cena or Roman Reigns could be performed by him. From sadness and frustration to pure aggression and power, he wants to be able to take fans on a roller coaster ride of emotions.

Corbin has undergone several gimmick changes over the years, from the “tough guy badass” to the “nose-up rule-follower” Constable Corbin, to the powerful King Corbin, the emotional Sad Corbin, and most recently, the upbeat Happy Corbin.

He now hopes to combine all these emotions into one character, hopefully creating magic for fans. Although “King” Corbin is currently off WWE TV, he has been making waves in the wrestling world, especially after he expressed his desire to face Roman Reigns for the newly minted World Heavyweight Championship.

Corbin stated that he would love to see himself as the RAW Heavyweight Champion, going head-to-head with Reigns, the Universal Champion, in an epic Champion vs. Champion match.

Baron Corbin and his Undrafted Resilience: A Lone Wolf’s Journey to Redemption

As a free agent, the 38-year-old wrestler remains valuable to any wrestling organization, despite going undrafted in the 2023 Draft. His upcoming match on SmackDown against Cameron Grimes will be a significant one, especially since Grimes will be making his main roster debut. Fans are excited to see Corbin bring back his Lone Wolf gimmick, and some have even dubbed it “Time for Roman Reigns to run.”

However, it remains to be seen if Corbin can truly channel the grit and aggression of his past character and make it work with the new dimensions he hopes to add. Whether he brings back the Lone Wolf or creates a brand-new character, many fans will probably be eager to see what he has in store for them.
