We noted back in June that former NFL player Baron Corbin (Tom Pestock) is one of the WWE NXT talents to watch in the coming months. He was apparently headed for a biker gimmick with Raquel Diaz (Shaul Guerrero) before she was released earlier this year.
Corbin is now coming out and leaving with no theme music and isn’t celebrating after his wins. He squashed Garett Dylan at Saturday night’s NXT live event in Tampa.
Corbin and NXT star Jason Jordan are being brought to this week’s RAW and SmackDown. We noted before that Sami Zayn, NXT Women’s Champion Charlotte and NXT Champion Adrian Neville will also be at this week’s tapings. With Sasha Banks working Madison Square Garden last night with Charlotte, it’s possible she will be at the tapings as well. There’s no word yet if any of these talents will debut on TV.
