Reason why Baron Corbin was not at WWE TV this week

We’ve gotten several emails about this so we’ll mention it here. Baron Corbin is not being buried and the reason why he was off Smackdown Live this week is because he was in New York City. He was at the 2016 Revolver Music Awards to accept the award for Most Metal Athlete of 2016.

He beat out nominees such as NHL players Robin Lehner and Drew Stafford, UFC fighter Julianna Pena and Matt Brown.

The company is high on Corbin and with the thin roster, they need more solid heels and he fits the bill. Although he was not at TV this week, they did air a really good video package for him. I would not be surprised if he became the top heel on Smackdown Live in 2017 and, based on what management thinks of him, I could see him getting a title run as well.
