WWE News: Baron Corbin comments on Daniel Bryan's return to the ring in WWE
The Lone Wolf also opened up about his chances of winning this year's Andre The Giant Memorial Battle Royal.
What’s the story?
During a recent interview with Mike Jones of DC 101, WWE Smackdown Live Superstar Baron Corbin spoke about a host of topics, most notably, about Daniel Bryan’s return to the ring in WWE and the annual Andre The Giant Memorial Battle Royal, that takes place at WWE’s flagship event WrestleMania.
In case you didn’t know…
Since making his initial retirement from professional wrestling back in 2015, due to several neck injuries, earlier in the week, former four-time WWE World Champion Bryan finally got the green signal from several WWE doctors.
The doctors finally decided to medically clear the former WWE Intercontinental Champion and in doing so, once again allowed Bryan to compete in the squared circle.
The heart of the matter
While interacting with Mike Jones, The Lone Wolf became the latest WWE Superstar to weigh in his thoughts on Bryan’s massive return to Pro Wrestling, following an absence of almost two and a half years.
Corbin believes that Bryan’s return is indeed an amazing comeback story, which is eventually going to turn out to be a really cool narrative to hear 20 years from now.
Additionally, he also said, Bryan is definitely going to be firing on all cylinders once he steps back into the wrestling ring.
The former WWE champion competes in the squared circle for the first time since April 16, 2015, when he teamed up with United States Champion John Cena to defeat former WWE Tag Team Champions Cesaro and Tyson Kidd on an episode of Smackdown.
“I think it will be awesome and it’s such a feel-good story for a guy that has so much passion for this business and for what people do. So it couldn’t happen to a better guy, this kind of opportunity and you know he’s gonna be firing on all cylinders any chance he gets to be in the ring and competes. It’s gonna be fireworks and definitely something you’re not gonna want to miss.”
When asked about his thoughts on this year’s Andre The Giant Memorial Battle Royal, The Lone Wolf stated that winning the Andre The Giant Memorial Battle Royal for the second time in his career is definitely going to be another huge accomplishment added to his list of elusive achievements.
Furthermore, the former WWE US Champion claimed, that he’s seemingly going to use the Battle Royal as a launching pad, that is certainly going to elevate his career to the next level.
“I mean obviously no one has done it so rolling into 2018 it would be a good start for me for this year. Look at what happened last year with Dean Ambrose who came up short but they you got a guy like Braun Strowman who was in the Andre and now look at where he’s at.”
As noted on this week’s edition of Smackdown Live, Corbin will now compete in this year’s Andre The Giant Memorial Battle Royal at WrestleMania 34, on the 7th of April at the Mercedes-Benz Superdome in New Orleans, Louisiana.
Being a former Andre The Giant Battle Royal winner, Corbin is certainly going to be a huge favorite heading into this year’s Battle Royal and The Lone Wolf will definitely be the one to watch out for at WrestleMania 34.
