Tonight at Cash within the Financial institution, Baron Corbin gained the Cash within the Financial institution contract in the course of the males’s ladder match. Typically superstars who win this contract maintain on to it for months upon months, whereas typically they use it virtually instantly. So what’s the plan for Baron Corbin?
Properly, we received a slight trace on the reply this night on Speaking Smack, the SmackDown Stay aftershow. Through the broadcast, Corbin was requested if he’s going to carry on to the contract for almost the entire yr, and he stated that he appreciated the sound of that, as he needs each WWE champion to continuously be on edge and stay nervous that he's going to strike.
“[Holding onto the contract for a year] would entertain me, as a result of anyone holding the WWE Championship will all the time have that little nervous tic of wanting behind them when somebody like me has this,” Corbin stated. “…The menace alone is an enjoyment to me. Simply the specter of this. I’m going to hold this with satisfaction.”
Based mostly on this remark, it seems like we shouldn’t precisely anticipate Baron Corbin to out of the blue money within the Cash within the Financial institution contract this Tuesday. The precise size of his contract reign, in fact, is one thing that doubtless hasn’t even been decided but.
Up to now, the document for longest time holding a Cash within the Financial institution contract is 280 days. This report is held by Edge, the winner of the very first Cash within the Financial institution ladder match ever. The second longest reign was Seth Rollins, who held on to the contract for 273 days earlier than cashing it in at WrestleMania. And the third longest reign belongs to Dolph Ziggler, who held on to his contract for 267 days.
Already we all know that Baron Corbin won't beat the report for shortest contract reign, as two superstars have used their Cash within the Financial institution contract on the identical night time they gained it: Kane and Dean Ambrose. Kane holds the report for shortest Cash within the Financial institution contract reign, as he held his for simply 48 minutes.
Based mostly on Baron Corbin’s feedback tonight, it feels like we shouldn’t know for positive when he's going to money in his contract till the second it occurs. Some superstars have introduced once they’re going to money in, together with John Cena, as in 2012, everybody knew that Cena was going to money in on the 1000th episode of Uncooked. Nevertheless, Corbin needs to maintain a degree of unpredictability to his contract reign.
