Vince McMahon is still very high on SmackDown Live Superstar Baron Corbin and views him as a big star for the company in future years, according to Dave Meltzer in the latest edition of the Wrestling Observer Newsletter. McMahon also views him as one of the talent with most potential outside of the main event picture.
There were plans at one stage for Corbin to be repacked after WrestleMania 33 but nothing came to fruition. Corbin had a brief push winning the Money in the Bank win, but he eventually lost his cash-in and a short US title run. It is believed his push was nixed after he got in hot water for his social media behavior and an incident in which he called out a WWE Doctor backstage.
Corbin vs. Shinsuke Nakamura vs. AJ Styles for the WWE title is being promoted as the Smackdown main event for Extreme Rules on July 15 in Pittsburgh.
