Report: Plans for Baron Corbin to Be Top Heel on WWE SmackDown

“The Lone Wolf” Baron Corbin may be a major player on WWE’s roster very soon. There are reportedly plans for Corbin to be pushed as Smackdown’s top heel. This is according to the latest edition of Dave Meltzer’s Wrestling Observer Newsletter.

Meltzer notes that the current plan is for Corbin to be built up as the big opponent for WWE Champion Randy Orton. Since WrestleMania 33 has come and gone, Corbin’s title program is being saved for later in the year when WWE’s bigger shows will be taking place.

Meltzer also mentions that WWE is currently looking at ways to change Corbin up a bit, such as giving him new music.
