Corbin is looking for revenge against Cena this Sunday

What's the story?

WWE Superstar Baron Corbin recently spoke to The Times-Picayune about a variety of topics, including how he was still waiting for his revenge against John Cena, for costing him his Money in the Bank contract, back in August last year.

In case you didn’t know…

The Lone Wolf was on a dream run of sorts in 2017 after he ended up going all the way in the Money in the Bank ladder match in June last year, thus winning a World Title shot at a time and place of his choosing, within one year.

However, when Corbin tried cashing in his contract against then WWE Champion Jinder Mahal on the August 15th episode of SmackDown Live, John Cena ended up costing him his opportunity. Rumours heavily suggested that Corbin was made to lose his MITB contract as a punishment from management, however, the reason for this punishment was never revealed.

The heart of the matter

Almost a year on, The Lone Wolf is back in the main event scene once again, as he is set to participate in a Six-pack challenge for the WWE Championship at the Fastlane pay-per-view.

The former US Champion, in his interview, vowed to avenge his loss, by beating Cena this Sunday and in the process, costing him an opportunity to go on to WrestleMania.

"I think it would be good retribution (to cost Cena on Sunday), to see the look on his face knowing his WrestleMania moment just got taken away, his dream of another WrestleMania championship match is taken away. It would make me feel good to know I played a role in taking his little dream."

What's next?

WWE Fastlane is set to emanate from the Nationwide Arena in Colombus, Ohio this Sunday, where the main event will see a six-pack challenge involving WWE Champion AJ Styles, John Cena, Baron Corbin, Kevin Owens, Sami Zayn and Dolph Ziggler for the WWE Championship.

Styles is largely believed to come out on top this Sunday, thus setting up a dream match between himself and Shinsuke Nakamura at WrestleMania 34.

Author's take

The way Corbin's push was abruptly cancelled last year was disheartening to see. It seems like WWE is set to put him in the main event scene once again, though it is highly unlikely that Corbin will win this Sunday.
