Pull the plug. There are all kinds of ways to present a storyline in wrestling and some of them are a lot more effective than others. You can tell when something is working, but it can take a little longer to figure out that something is missing. When these things finally hit rock bottom though, it is often time to get rid of them and that is what happened with a recent Monday Night Raw story.

Earlier this week on Monday Night Raw, John Bradshaw Layfield cut ties with Baron Corbin, ending their association. This led to reports that Layfield would not be back on WWE TV for the time being. According to Wrestling Observer Radio, Triple H pulled the plug on the story as he didn’t feel it was working. The story started after Layfield wanted to help rebuild Corbin after his latest losing streak, starting last fall.
Corbin has talent. Check out what he can do in the ring:
Opinion: At the end of the day, this seems like another Corbin push that hasn’t worked. I can see the potential WWE feels he has, but for some reason it has never clicked. Corbin needs something to finally fall into place to make everything work, but so far all of the adjustments have been for naught. I’m not sure what the trick is for Corbin, and I’m not sure if WWE is ever going to find it.
What do you think of the change? Will Corbin ever be World Champion? Let us know in the comments below.
