Baron Corbin recently spoke with Jonathan McLarty of The Flagship in Norfolk, VA to promote Saturday’s WWE SmackDown live event. Here are the highlights.
On how he feels SmackDown is superior to RAW:
“I think that we have a lot of competitors that are hungry for opportunity. There’s a fire on SmackDown Live that I don’t think Raw has. I think Raw is complacent in the fact that Raw’s been the flagship of WWE. Smackdown wants to be number one. When you’re handed a show like Raw that is the flagship of a company, you can be lazy. I believe we have created something very special and people really enjoy what we have.”
On Talking Smack:
“One-hundred percent. You walk on there and you have no idea what you’re walking in to. Everything is very pure, everything is raw. It’s an opportunity to be yourself and put yourself out there. That’s how you come across special things. When things come out real, you find that special thing that latches on and launches you all the way to the top.”
