People love it when you succeed. At a live event in Paris, France over the weekend, Baron Corbin picked up a victory over Rick Boogs. This may not seem like a big deal, but it was for a very specific reason.
This victory was Corbin’s first since his losing streak began on the November 21, 2022, episode of Raw, where he lost to Drew McIntyre.
Fans were quick to respond in a positive manner, as seen below:

Corbin was associated with JBL for the majority of 2022, but that association ended on the February 6 episode of Raw, following a losing effort against Dexter Lumis. He has not yet been drafted as a part of the 2023 WWE Draft.
I have always thought that he was a very special talent, who is good in the ring and can do anything that WWE gives him. On the other hand, he hasn’t found that one thing that has truly clicked with the fans, which is why he has remained in somewhat obscurity for a long time. If it were me, he would revert back to the Lone Wolf gimmick, because that’s where I thought he had the most success. Either way, this is an awesome thing to happen, and I hope that we see more of him in 2023!
