Following an altercation with Sami Zayn on the April 25 edition of WWE Talking Smack in which Baron Corbin shoved a WWE official, SmackDown LIVE Commissioner Shane McMahon has publicly announced, via Twitter, that he has fined The Lone Wolf and suspended him for one week, effective immediately.
Since being drafted onto the blue brand last July, Corbin has been out of control, attacking everyone from Kalisto to Dean Ambrose. But when he put his hands on a WWE official in front of Team Blue’s top dog, Corbin crossed a line that left McMahon with no choice but to take swift action.
And I’m calling bullshit – so let me get this straight and this is coming from one of the WWE’ biggest fans here, Corbin pushes an official, he gets fined and is outer there for a straight week.
My question is why? We have seen officials been stretchered off and not a penalty in sight heading the way of the wrestlers responsible, yet one push and the “Lone Wolf” is sent packing.
Naturally, this is for the story plot but at least get him on something believable, fucking have him destroy a set or something but the one push thing is some straight up BS and from someone like Shane McMahon – I would have expected better than this.
