Baron Corbin recently spoke with Sam Roberts where he spoke about WWE Superstars who blame the company for their own failures. Below are some highlights with a H/T to WrestlingInc.com for the transcriptions.
On talent blaming WWE for their failure:
“That’s a sad story for a lot of people nowadays. If something doesn’t work it’s always someone else’s fault or nobody wanted them to do it. It’s just one of those things, it’s like if you really wanted to get something and really go, people are going to appreciate it even if it takes longer than expected. I had hoped to be world champion by now; it’s taken me three-and-a-half years. It’ll come, it’s just going to take that grind,” said Corbin. “Some guys have been doing it for six months and are like well, it’s not going to work out for me because I’m not champion. It’s a grind. Anything worth doing is a grind so it’s that kind of thing where you can’t feel sorry for yourself and you have to keep pushing.”
On talent being upset they aren’t getting a push:
“I think it crosses everyone’s mind, but I think it’s a good thing because it means that you care about what you’re doing but the thing is you just can’t dwell off of it. You can’t blame someone else for that. If someone else gets an opportunity that you want, hey, good for them. However they got it, they got it. Whether I cry because they got it because they didn’t deserve it or they didn’t earn it doesn’t concern me. I have to figure out my next route to get to where I want to go,” stated Corbin.
