King Corbin channels Deontay Wilder with post-loss excuse
Like Deontay Wilder, King Corbin suffered a humbling defeat to a bitter rival this past week. Also like the previously undefeated boxer, Corbin blamed an unfortunate pre-match wardrobe selection for the loss.
I’m never gonna take anything away with from Roman Reign’s preparation for a main event steel cage match. I was prepared ... but I didn’t think of the toll my entrance gear (the chainmail, my robe) and entrance would take on my body. Three min in my legs were tired. pic.twitter.com/M1Nq0suY3O— Corbin (@BaronCorbinWWE) February 28, 2020
Earlier this week, Wilder sighted his 40-pound costume for weakening his legs during his elaborate entrance in his clash with Tyson Fury.
Deontay Wilder says a lot of things went wrong leading up to his fight against Tyson Fury, including miscalculating the effect his 40-pound costume would have on his legs. https://t.co/jHTfUnSEm8— SportsCenter (@SportsCenter) February 25, 2020
King Corbin was unable to deliver the victory at WWE Super ShowDown, but he did deliver a good laugh with his Wilder-inspired excuse. Maybe we don’t deserve our king after all.
