Baron Corbin, a name synonymous with the WWE universe, has had a rollercoaster of a career. From the highs and lows on the main roster to his current stint in NXT, Corbin’s journey has been nothing short of eventful.

And now, in a recent revelation, the seasoned WWE superstar has expressed his comfort with the idea of concluding his illustrious wrestling career in NXT.

After the WWE Draft, the wrestling community was abuzz with speculation regarding Corbin’s next move, given his free-agent status.

The universal appreciation he’s received from fans worldwide is something he holds dear, making the thought of retirement a challenging one: “I love travelling. Even my wife is like, ‘Would you stay in NXT for the rest of your career?’ And I’m like, ‘Maybe,’ because I love travelling and performing in front of these different audiences and experiencing the different cultures and the different cities and countries and places throughout the world.”
