Baron Corbin Eyes New Challenges in NXT: Sets Sights on Bron Breakker and Ilja Dragunov

Baron Corbin

WWE’s former ‘Lone Wolf’, Baron Corbin, seems to be finding a new hunting ground in NXT. After some notable feuds since moving down to NXT in May, Corbin is now setting his sights on even bigger challenges.

Baron Corbin, in a candid conversation with Sportskeeda, made it clear that he is far from done with NXT’s brightest stars. Apart from eyeing a rematch with Gable Steveson and another shot at the NXT Title currently held by Carmelo Hayes, Corbin has named Bron Breakker and Ilja Dragunov as the next superstars he wishes to square up against in the ring.

Corbin enthused, “I think Ilja is an amazing talent, Bron Breakker; those are the guys I wanna mix it up with. So will see who I punch in the face next that gets offended, and then we could have some fun.”

Revisiting Old Feuds

It’s evident that Corbin’s appetite for the NXT title remains unsatiated. His fierce competition against Carmelo Hayes and the epic clash with the debuting Gable Steveson at the Great American Bash are still fresh in the minds of NXT fans.

While he couldn’t clinch the title from Hayes, his bout with Steveson had the WWE Universe at the edge of their seats. It culminated in a double count-out, leaving the audience clamoring for more.

“I still wanna go behind Carmelo. I still want my hands on that title. Gable Steveson, obviously, we went to war at the Great American Bash, so maybe he and I still got something,” Corbin mused.

Bringing Experience to NXT

Corbin, at 38, is not a fresh face in the WWE Universe. Having made his mark on the main roster, his decision to come to NXT was met with mixed reactions. Some saw it as a step-down, while others viewed it as an opportunity for Corbin to reinvent himself and bring a wealth of experience to WWE’s developmental brand.

Over the past few months, he has indeed added depth to the NXT roster, showing the younger talent the ropes while keeping the audience entertained with his gritty in-ring style and charisma.

Looking Forward

With Corbin naming potential opponents, it’s only a matter of time before the WWE Universe witnesses some of these dream matchups. Will Corbin finally get his hands on the NXT Title? Or will the likes of Breakker, Dragunov, or Steveson halt his ambitions?

One thing is certain: Baron Corbin’s journey in NXT is shaping up to be an electrifying one, and fans should brace themselves for more hard-hitting encounters.
