Baron Corbin didn’t last very long during last Sunday’s Royal Rumble but he did have a busy Royal Rumble Weekend. One of the things he did was give an interview to Chris Van Vliet where he talked about his hair, his influences, and being a heel.
According to Corbin, he wants’ to get a tattoo on his head to emulate one of his favorite wrestlers of all time, Bam Bam Bigelow.
“Bam Bam Bigelow is one of my favorite wrestlers of all time and I would like to tattoo my head, [though not exactly like Bigelow’s tattoo]. You know, getting rid of the hair was the first step to getting there. I don’t know when it will happen. It might actually kill my mother,” said Corbin.
Aside from his mother, Corbin might have to run his idea for a new look by another authority figure, Vince McMahon. According to Corbin, McMahon wasn’t too enthusiastic about him shaving his head. It took him about eight months to finally get permission.
“I went and talked to Vince about cutting my hair at one point and he was like, ‘Not yet.’ It’s gonna go through legal and something like that, because it’s on action figures and, video games and all of those things. It’s not just like one person going, ‘Okay, you can do this.’ Or if I would have just shown up with my head shaved, I would probably be out of job.”
Corbin may no longer be Constable or Acting General Manager of Raw, but he’s still a heel with a lot of heat with the crowd, and he likes it that way.
“I think it’s just in my nature to irritate people and push things as far as I can. It’s really benefited me in WWE,” said Corbin.
