On Instagram, Corbin posted a picture from 2011 after a game. Back then, Corbin weighed almost 332 lbs and resembled little of the current Corbin the fans see on a weekly basis.

However, Corbin is not ashamed of his past and even joked about it.

He wrote, “Quick question, was it the shirt that made me look fat or my fat that made me look fat? Yeah, the beard didn’t do me any favors either. That’s 332lbs drink it in!”

It is evident how Corbin has come a long way. Currently, he is one of the top heels on the SmackDown roster and is feuding with the Mysterio Family of Rey and Dominik Mysterio.

To commemorate his fitness journey and inspire others, Corbin regularly shares his workout videos. Interestingly, Corbin is all for alternate methods for fitness as he is an avid supporter of cycling too.

WWE Hall of Famer Booker T appreciates the “kingship” of Baron Corbin

Baron Corbin won the King of The Ring tournament of 2019. Since then, he adopted the gimmick of “King” Corbin. His demeanor during this gimmick catapulted him as one of the top heels.

Recently, another legendary King of the Ring and WWE Hall of Famer, Booker T, lauded the approach of Corbin. He said on his podcast that Corbin is “stepping up.”

“I appreciate all the Kings that have come along, but Corbin has really taken the role just like I did, he’s believed in the role to create, you know, for me, my own world, the SmackDown world, the SmackDown kingdom. This is something that Corbin has trying to recreate.”

Booker won the tournament in 2006 and had a similar reputation as Corbin. Booker even put Corbin over ‘Stone Cold’ Steve Austin as the best King.

You know I’ve talked to Steve Austin about it and the best kings about it. You know, they got Steve Austin at number one (best King of the Ring poll) and I go, ‘how does this happen?’ That’s what the polls say. Fake polls. I would give King Corbin the rub,” Booker concluded.

Coming back to Baron Corbin, he recently appeared inside the Elimination Chamber 2021 in the hopes of becoming the number one contender for Roman Reigns’ Universal title. However, he was the first one to get eliminated.
