Corbin is an integral part of Raw as the acting general manager, but it wasn't necessarily an easy road for him to get to this point.
The Lone Wolf discussed his rise up the ranks in WWE with WWE Hall of Famer Booker T on Heated Conversations (h/t William Windsor of WrestlingInc.com) this week and noted that he made some enemies early in his career due in part to the fact that he came from a football background:
"It's a competitive business and everybody wants to be the best. And when there's a new guy coming in and there's buzz about him, 'Oh, he was a pro football player,' you instantly have people that don't like you because they're afraid you're going to take their spot. Of course, I poured salt on the wound saying, 'Yeah, I'm going to take it—I get paid more than you and I'm better than you.'"
Corbin has only been on the main roster since 2016, but he has already accomplished plenty with an Andre the Giant Memorial Battle Royal win, United States Championship reign and Money in the Bank ladder match victory to his credit.
He is currently focusing on the speaking and character development aspect of his trade, and that figures to better prepare him for any big opportunities that may be in his future.
