Mike Jones of DC 101 interviewed Baron Corbin, who was promoting the upcoming WWE Road To WrestleMania live event this Sunday at Eagle Bank Arena in Fairfax, VA. During the interview, Corbin discussed his experiences at WrestleMania, what we'll see with the top matches at the event, getting to hang out with the guys from Super Troopers and how the locker room reacted to Daniel Bryan's return. You can check out the full interview in the audio player below, they sent us these highlights:
The excitement of going to WrestleMania after the Royal Rumble: "You're always trying to leave your mark every night you are in front of an audience or in front of Vince, Hunter, all those guys to elevate your status to get your opportunity at Mania. It's like a job interview every night. Because everybody's dream is to be a part of WrestleMania because that's the marquee show, that's where history is made. You're doing everything you can every night to get that opportunity. Once the Rumble is over, it is complete madness because it is a race to Mania and where do you finish there." How big WrestleMania truly is: "People come from all over the world for this event and they are there for an entire weekend for AXXESS, NXT Takeover, then Mania, then RAW, Smackdown…It's 5 consecutive days of wrestling. If you are a fan, why would you NOT be there? You get all these chances to meet Superstars, signing at AXXESS, NXT matches, meet and greets, and so many things you get to be a part of as a WWE Superstar like book readings and anti-bullying and just so many promotional factors that are so awesome to be a part of." The Andre The Giant Memorial Battle Royal: "My opportunity if I win this that's another thing on my list of accomplishments, the 2 time Andre the Giant Memorial Battle Royal, would be huge on there. I mean obviously no one has done it so rolling into 2018 it would be a good start for me for this year. Look at what happened last year with Dean Ambrose who came up short but they you got a guy like Braun Strowman who was in the Andre and now look at where he's at. That's one of those things that can truly elevate you so that's what I'm gonna use it for is another launching.
Carmella quickly made an impact here in Imperior Wrestling by winning the Smackdown Womens championship. She went against 3 of the most fierce competitors in all of the company. Carmella is the only Inagural champion in iwe today. Carmella is just 8 days away from making history as being the longest reining champion in Imperior Wrestling. Carmella made her first title defense facing the boss Sasha Banks those two had an instant classic that surely made the history books. She has surley been the most dominat champion in this industry and looks to walk in and out of WrestleMania stilk the Smackdown Womens champion Congratulations to Carmella.

February 14 2018, the day my prophecy was fulfilled. I beat the boss sasha banks to become the inaugural raw women's champion. Ever since then we had 3 little rodents named the Riott squad they thought hey could dethrone the myth well they were wrong. I beat the leader of there team Ruby Riott after that they attacked me. 19 days later march 3rd i was finally dethorned by the women who i demolished and destroyed to become the women's champion. But march 3rd was my curtain call my time to step down. But i want to know, what exactly did Sasha Banks do to deserve an opportunity or even the Riot squad for that matter. Did they whine like the little bitches they were or was sucking up the best way possible. But that doesn't matter right now, what matters is me reclaiming my throne at the top once again. This week we feature genesis the paper-view where ember moon reclaims her throne where ember moon refills her prophecy and continues her road to wrestlemania. In that match i face 3 of the most disgraceful superstars on this whole roster. Sasha banks, Liv morgan and ruby riot. Those three wanted to be at the top but there forgetting who is the true uncrowned champion of prophecy wrestling. But let's not unrecognized what the stipulation is at genesis its a steel cage match. Which honestly i think none of you are ready for that kind of stipulation. Sasha banks you may be raw women's champion know but come genesis im going to “snatch” your dignity and your raw women's championship and become a two-time raw women's champion. So if your ready for an eclipse i dare you to try me because there is no way in hell i'm losing another opportunity like this ever again. Now for the two members of the riot squad. Will they coexist in this match will they be be friends after this match and leave good old kentucky farmer sarah logan pick up the pieces we will have to see a man comone ruby i can't believe you have to team up with someone as annoying as liv morgan. I just still can't believe you put up with her.
This could be one of the best female rivalries in a long time if taken seriously. Both fanbases dislike each other and they both can tear the house down. Can be the 3rd best rivalry for the women after Charlotte/Sasha and Trish/Lita! @alexa_bliss_wwe_@sashabankswwe
Good night y'all! I hope you had a great day. By the way, comment for a tbh!!! Haven't done those in years!!!!!
Going on a little bit of a rant here:
If the rumors are true of UFC having yet another interim title fight at UFC 224 between Colby Covington (ranked 3) and Rafael Dos Anjos (ranked 2) then that is absolutely ridiculous. Why can't it just be a number one contender fight? Ever since the UFC sold WME-IMG whatever (splitting from fertida brothers) I feel the company has had too many events (some with a packed card and most with over exposed young fighters or veterans too past their prime.) With having so many events cards don't feel as special. That is what I loved about the sport to begin with. If lucky we would get one event a month but now we get at least two maybe even three.
But I digress the UFC does not need to make another interim title fight. Having to many of these devalue the actual title holder & is honestly really annoying.
I hope the UFC slows down with these interim fights & amount of events.
Sasha Banks vs Sonya Deville vs Bianca Belair vs Bayley
Ember Moon vs Billie Kay vs Emma vs Liv Morgan -
For the tournament Quarter and Semi final will be held on raw.
