Though Corbin worked as a heel for the majority of his WWE career, the WWE superstar once got the support of the WWE Universe. Before he became Happy Corbin, the WWE superstar put on the gimmick of “Sad Corbin”, who looked sad, sported dirty clothes and did not even shave his head, and kept an untidy beard.

Recently, in an interview on the Out of Character Podcast with Ryan Satin, Corbin revealed how Vince McMahon informed him about not shaving or cutting his hair and beard. The WWE superstar revealed he got a phone call from Vince McMahon at 2 A.M. Corbin said, “It was just this miserable guy with a dirty shirt. The worst part was not being able to cut the hair or the beard because I get a text message at like 2 A.M. from Vince.”
“It’s like, ‘Don’t shave or cut your hair’. And I’m going, okay, where’s this going? After like three weeks I’m going like, I got the Costanza hair going,” he added.
