5 possible opponents for WWE's King Baron Corbin
WWE has a new King, and his name is Baron Corbin. After toppling stars like The Miz, Cedric Alexander, Samoa Joe, and Ricochet, Corbin defeated Chad Gable on last night's RAW to capture the prestigious crown.
As King of the Ring, Corbin joins an elite group that includes stars like Stone Cold Steve Austin, Macho Man Randy Savage, Triple H, and Brock Lesnar. But there's an adage that says - "heavy is the head that wears the crown", therefore Corbin will have plenty of people ready to rebel against the King.
Here are five possible opponents for the 2019 WWE King of the Ring, Baron Corbin.
#5: WWE Champion Kofi Kingston
At WWE Clash of Champions, Kofi Kingston was able to retain his WWE Championship against Randy Orton in what may be the final match between the pair. After drawing against the Viper at SummerSlam, Kingston proved he's not the same man Orton decimated a decade ago. If the feud is indeed over, Kingston will be on the hunt for his next challenger.
Enter King Baron Corbin. Despite being a RAW Superstar, it's very easy to imagine the King moved to the blue brand when the WWE draft occurs next month. Though Corbin competed for the Universal title earlier this year, having him as the top heel on SmackDown Live could do wonders for his career. Kofi's reign is soon to enter its sixth month, and it may be time for a change.
With the blue brand moving to FOX Sports 1 next month, there could be several changes made to SmackDown when it launches on October 4. One of those changes could be King Corbin becoming the next WWE Champion.
