What Roman Reigns privately told Baron Corbin about his arrogant behaviour
- Baron Corbin disclosed what was said in the conversation
- Roman Reigns was part of the FCW and NXT systems with Corbin
Before making his way to RAW and SmackDown in 2016, Corbin spent four years in WWE’s FCW and NXT developmental systems alongside the likes of Reigns and Seth Rollins.
Speaking on Corey Graves’ After The Bell podcast, the 2019 King of the Ring winner said he irritated a lot of his colleagues due to the arrogance of how he carried himself and how successful he wanted to be.
Although this led to legitimate heat with some people, Reigns was one of the up-and-coming Superstars who offered some words of wisdom to the man who he would later main-event dozens of WWE shows with.
“I think you saw it from a few guys, the guys who mattered, like Roman pulled me aside at a show and he was like, ‘Hey, you gotta do this, this, this,’ because those are the guys who look at someone and go, ‘Oh, he can be successful, he can help us, let’s do this.’ But he’s also like, ‘Yeah, not everybody is going to like you but that’s okay.’”
