Mark Henry Discusses The Successful Transition of Baron Corbin From NFL to WWE

Mark Henry Discusses The Successful Transition of Baron Corbin From NFL to WWE
During an interview with Busted Open Radio, Mark Henry discussed the progression of Baron Corbin's character and his successful transition from the NFL to the WWE.

Corbin spent three years on various NFL teams before finally signing with WWE in 2012. Henry explained that Corbin's transition from NFL to the WWE has been so successful because of Corbin's love for the wrestling business.

"There are so many guys that were football players that came to the WWE, not because they were a football player and had notoriety, because they loved the damn business," Henry said. "They loved it! They were fans. Just like me, I didn't come from wrestling. I didn't even know you could do it! How do you become a pro wrestler? I never asked the question because I didn't think it was possible. Don't think that it's just a ton of football players that are lined up that the WWE is gonna sign and put 'em in the ring. It's not gonna happen."

Henry would commend Corbin further, saying that his athleticism and passion for wanting to improve have set him on the right path in the WWE.

"We had 10 NFL-type guys at the camp that I was at down in Orlando," Henry revealed. "We didn't sign any of them. Not one. So don't think that it's just as easy crap shoot, 'Hey, let's roll out the guys from the combine and throw 'em in there and make 'em wrestlers.' That's not the way it works, y'all. That's not the way it works.

"Baron Corbin is a guy that was athletic, passionate about being a wrestler and wanting to be good at it. He didn't wanna just do it for the sake of doing it, to make a dollar here and there. He wants to be somebody. And if you look at the body of work that he's put out already, he's on the right path. And whether you like him or not, according to the role that he's playing, then, that's just tough!"
