15Baron Corbin, WWE World Champion
It has already begun!
Just a couple of weeks ago, Baron Corbin was added into the main event match of SmackDown Live to wrestle for the WWE World Championship belt against A.J. Styles and Dolph Ziggler. Although the title remained safely in the hands of A.J. Styles following their Triple Threat
match, it was Baron Corbin who emerged as a legit star that will eventually upset someone along the way and win the WWE World Championship later in the year.
After being nearly left for dead last May, Baron Corbin has continued to climb in the ranks of the WWE and by finally getting his title shot the other night on SmackDown Live, it solidified a lot of the things we already knew about his future in the company and that he is also being watched closely by WWE's front office.
