That’s who he is now. There are certain wrestlers who are known by one name and one name only. It is rare for some of those names to change, but every now and then you hear something different and it can kind of throw you off a bit. That being said, sometimes a change is needed and it can make things better. It seems that we are seeing that again at the moment.

This week on SmackDown, Baron Corbin officially changed his name to Happy Corbin. The change comes after Corbin ended his unlucky streak by winning money gambling in Las Vegas over the week. As a result, Corbin now has money and a new Bentley, though he was unable to buy Big E.’s Money in the Bank briefcase. This comes after several weeks of Corbin being left destitute by a series of financial setbacks and problems.

Corbin has had a heck of a ride. Check out the new version, plus how he got here:

Opinion: This very well may be the best story going in WWE today and a lot of that is due to how well Corbin has sold the whole thing. I believe everything that he is saying and it is fascinating to see how well he is selling the story. There is every chance that the whole thing could be changed right back, and that has kept the story from getting boring over the last few months.

What do you think of the change? How do you like your Corbin? Let us know in the comments below.
