Opinion: Baron Corbin Could win the Universal Championship at Super ShowDown
Baron Corbin became the No.1 contender for Seth Rollins' Universal Championship at Super ShowDown on last week's episode of Raw. Corbin defeated Braun Strowman, The Miz & Bobby Lashley to get an opportunity at the Universal title.
Seth Rollins, on the other hand, has his attention on Mr. Beast in the Bank Brock Lesnar, who has been teasing to cash in the contract for the past two weeks.
Baron Corbin has been in the main event of Raw on multiple occasions since the start of this year, and this could indicate Vince McMahon views Corbin as one of the top heels in the company.
Corbin accused Seth Rollins of having more focus on Brock Lesnar rather than on him on tonight's Raw and almost cost Rollins the Universal Championship by hitting the end of days on him before Brock Lesnar laid out his brutal attack.
Seth Rollins endured a vicious attack at the hands of the Beast Incarnate, taking a big low blow and multiple chair shots. The EMT's had to stretcher out the Universal Champion and took him out of the arena in an ambulance.
Corbin was happy with Lesnar's attack on Rollins and said the Beast Incarnate had done him a favor by weakening the Universal Champion before Super ShowDown.
Seth Rollins having his entire focus on Brock Lesnar could be the opportunity for Baron Corbin to come up with the biggest upset of the year by becoming the new Universal Champion at Jeddah.
We've seen this scenario in the past with Randy Orton and Jinder Mahal, and we could see Corbin recreating the same with Seth Rollins this Friday at Super ShowDown.
With Brock Lesnar telling Paul Heyman to wait until Friday to cash in the MITB contract, there’s a chance he could cash in on Baron Corbin.
Or we could see Corbin take advantage of the distraction caused by Lesnar and escape Jeddah as the new Universal Champion.
One way or the other, we could see Baron Corbin beat Seth Rollins for the Universal Championship this Friday at Super ShowDown.
