John Cena Responsible For Baron Corbin Losing His WWE Push?


As noted, there is apparently backstage heat on Baron Corbin, which resulted in him cashing in the Money In The Bank contract and losing.

It was rumored that Corbin may have had heat over some of the comments he’s made on Twitter, including to a military veteran, which he apologized for. However, Justin Barraso of Sports Illustrated appeared on Wednesday’s edition of the Wrestling Inc. podcast, said there was another reason for his heat.

Barasso said:

“I heard the kiss of death was Cena, [Cena said] that Corbin wasn’t ready. I can’t say anymore right now, that’s kind of what I’m trying to work on as we speak.”

Barasso continued: “I haven’t heard about the social media, I mean, he’s a heel right? So he should play one on social media. I don’t think that was the issue, but then again they kind of pick and choose who they defend in those cases, Raj. I don’t know, but right now, I don’t think that’s [social media] the reason.”

Dave Meltzer mentioned Barasso said that “the cash-in was a late decision. Corbin had a lot of heat with talent backstage.”
