Baron Corbin Explains Triple H’s Management Style

Triple H on the mic

Baron Corbin has discussed Triple H’s management style and how it differs from when Vince McMahon was in charge.

Since Triple H took on the role of WWE’s Chief Content Officer, multiple changes have been made in the way TV shows are run. Among other things, this has included wrestlers being allowed to work unscripted, to longer matches, and making mid-card titles feel important.

One man who has been in WWE for both Vince McMahon and Triple H’s regimes is Baron Corbin. The star has found his own presentation changing as he is now managed by JBL who has proclaimed him to be the “Modern Day Wrestling God”.

In a new interview on the Johnny Dare Morning Show, Corbin explained that the change in management has brought a “new energy” to Raw and things aren’t rushed as much as they were.

“The show has gotten new energy, new life, and for me being on Monday nights, I’m still adjusting and being on the new schedule, getting into the roster and digging into who we can work with and who we want to beat up and who has the most punchable face, besides me.

“It’s fun, it’s nice, we’re not rushing anything. That’s one thing I love about Triple H, he’s a firm believer in ‘it’s a marathon, not a race [sprint].’ He likes to slow play things, and he doesn’t just waste people.”

He went on to explain that this means he isn’t necessarily on TV every week, which gives him time to be with his family. This is once aspect Corbin is still getting used to.

“If you don’t have something that is a big-time play or move on television, he’s like, ‘then you don’t need to be out there because it’s not good to just be out there.’ You want to have a purpose every time you go on television.”

“It’s still a lot of things for me to get used to where he’s like, ‘Hey, stay at home with your family this weekend, enjoy the weekend.’ ‘Wait, what?’ He’s a guy that really wants his talent and the families to be happy.

According to Baron Corbin, Vince McMahon also sees family as important, but had a more “go, go, go” mentality.

“Vince (McMahon) is the same as well, but his mentality is ‘go, go, go.’ That’s how he is, he’s incredible, he works out at 3 AM, he’s a machine and expects everyone else around him to be a machine. Everybody in WWE is capable of that, but it is nice to step back. I just took a cruise and was on a boat for seven days.”
