Back in October, John Bradshaw Layfield returned to WWE as Baron Corbin’s manager. The two have been associated on television since, though Corbin has been on a losing streak in recent weeks. This week on Monday Night Raw, Layfield said that he was done with Corbin and was washing his hands of him.

Maybe this is the latest way to get something going for Corbin, but it certainly feels like another reset.
What do you think of the change? How will it go for Corbin? Let us know in the comments below.
