King Corbin Promo 

Survivor Series is two weeks from this Sunday. For the first time ever, the battle for brand supremacy will be Raw vs SmackDown vs NXT. That’s all the WWE Universe wants to talk about these days. How NXT took over SmackDown last week. I find it embarrassing and there’s blame to go around. The majority of that blame belongs one persons shoulders. That person claims to be a locker room leader, Roman Reigns. Now Roman, you have done a few things. You’ve main evented four WrestleMania’s, you went six years without taking a day off, you’re a three time world champion, a Universal Champion that never lost, you came back from leukemia in less in a year. How many athletes around the world can say that?

Roman you truly are a role model, but if there’s one thing I know, this fickle blood sucking audience only cares about one thing, and that’s what have you done for me lately? Roman, what have you done lately? The answer is nothing. I mean you said it yourself, your priorities they’ve changed. You’re a face, not a fighter. You put on a suit and tie, you do appearances, you meet children, you take days off, you spend days at home with your family when this ring used to be your family. You no longer have the desire to be champion because you don’t want the responsibility that goes with it. Do you understand the responsibility it takes to be king? Roman, you are half the man and a step behind what you used to be.

Your brothers in The Shield, they abandoned you. I see right through you Roman. These people are starting to see right through you as well. Now you still walk around calling yourself the big dog, but I think the big dogs testicles have shriveled up into itsy, bitsy, tiny little marbles. Well Roman, your bark is starting to sound like a Chihuahua. I mean if you don’t believe me, take a look. We hear a soft dog barking on the titantron screen. Wait, there’s no Roman Reigns music right now. Where’s he at? That wasn’t enough? See, I told you people the truth. Roman Reigns is no longer man enough to come out here and stand face to face with The King.

Come on Roman, they want you to come out. Bring out your little testicles into this ring. Your bark is getting worse than your bite. Come on Roman, let’s go. I’m sorry guys, he’s not here. He’s off granting a star like wish and making some child’s day. Awww. But you know what, he will be here tonight. He’s going to climb into this ring in the main event and stand face to face with me. He’s going to tuck his little tail between his legs and then i’m going to proceed to beat the crap out of him, then all of you are going to grab your little doggy poop bags and scrape up the big dog’s excrements and take it home as a souvenir. You will all bend the knee to your king.
