Baron Corbin has never been shy about his giving his opinion on something, which is why he recently gave his thoughts on some recent critical comments by fellow WWE superstar Braun Strowman.

The WWE journeys of Baron Corbin and Braun Strowman have been similar in the sense that neither guy was an independent wrestler. Corbin was invited to try out by WWE after he played offensive line in the NFL while Strowman was part of strongman competitions.

Recently, the 6’8″ Braun Strowman had a match with the 7’3″ Omos at WWE Crown Jewel on November 5th in a battle of giants. After he was proud of himself for the match, the “Monster of All Monsters” went on social media to brag about the match while also taking some unnecessary shots at other wrestlers. The now-deleted tweet from Strowman said this:

Holy hell @TheGiantOmos can you believe we got 47 ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ and reminded the people that no one cares about all these floppy floppers. Giants and Monster > flippy flipper bag your grocery’s at @kroger#AirportTest#SizeIsThePrize#SwoleIsTheGoal

Those comments from Strowman apparently led to some backstage heat for the big man because some wrestlers that aren’t as big as him have to wrestle a different style while he was blessed to be as big as he is, which is what Jim Cornette recently said. Others, like Corey Graves, believed that Strowman was merely self-promoting, which is what pro wrestling is about now in this social media world we are living in.

During a recent episode of WWE’s After The Bell podcast, Corbin was asked about Strowman’s comments.

“Yeah, I mean, I think ‘Do you,’ whatever it is, but stand behind it. If you cower and back down after, then you didn’t really mean it. You were doing it for clout, doing it for show, doing it for social media. If you’re going to go out and tweet, ‘I’m the greatest big man this business has ever seen,’ if you’re saying it, and you’re the one that’s having the title, no one else is saying it and you’re just full of crap.”

Corbin would go on to say that he respected somebody like Rey Mysterio, who has accomplished a lot even though he’s a smaller guy. Corbin added that he doesn’t really understand why Strowman did it since he’s a good guy (babyface) while Corbin is a bad guy (heel) that has been mean to fans for the past decade.

“He’s a good guy, if you will. So to go out and do that, I don’t understand it. I think you should take pride in being a big man and putting on a show like that, but the minute you have to go out and tell people how good you are and make up your own star rating, I’m out.”

After a run as “Happy Corbin” ended earlier this year, Corbin got back the Baron Corbin name recently on Raw with John Bradshaw Layfield as his manager. Since then, Corbin has picked up several wins including a victory over Akira Tozawa this past Monday on Raw.
