Baron Corbin has experienced life in WWE NXT and now on the main roster.
In his time, he was a name on the card in NXT while the company started backing him in recent years on the main roster. WWE Chairman and CEO Vince McMahon is strongly behind him as a heel on the main roster.
Corbin made a recent appearance on the Not Sam Wrestling Podcast where he talked about fans blaming WWE officials for misusing NXT stars on the main roster.
The list is quite long regarding talents who got over in NXT but have struggled or not reached their full potential once placed on the main roster, according to fans.
“What’s crazy is when people say, ‘I don’t want these guys to get called up so that they can be misused.’ Nobody is being misused. They’re going to be given opportunities; they’re either going to make them successful or not, that is just the way it is. There is a reason why NXT and Triple H has built an amazing thing down there because it gets guys ready to come down here [to the main roster].”
“When they get called up it is up to the guys to find success. John Cena is somebody who has always preached that. It’s on you, it’s not on anyone else. If guys are being misused it’s not anybody’s fault but their own. They have to find an avenue to get successful, to get creative, to pitch ideas, and it’s hard because you do get lost in the shuffle here. There are a lot of guys that I think do great things when given the opportunity, but it’s all about fighting and finding that opportunity.”
