Thomas Pestock is a professional wrestler going by the name Baron Corbin, and is currently signed to WWE. He is a former offensive lineman for the Indianapolis Colts and Arizona Cardinals of the National Football League (NFL), as well as a three-time Golden Gloves champion and former grappling champion. Corbin is also the winner of the third annual André the Giant Memorial Battle Royal at WrestleMania 32.

In 2017, Corbin won the Money in the Bank match for a WWE Championship opportunity, and became the third wrestler to fail to win a title upon cash-in after being pinned by champion Jinder Mahal. Soon after, Corbin won his first championship in WWE, the United States Championship. In 2019, his ring name was changed to King Corbin after he won King Of The Ring. Shinsuke Nakamura took his crown in 2021, which led to Corbin reverting back to his original name. Also, he adopted a gimmick where he feels sorry for himself for being “poor”, when he’s not that much poorer than he was.

Pestock has credited Billy Gunn, Bill DeMott, Corey Graves, Kane and Dusty Rhodes with helping him develop his wrestling character and personality.
