What a punch! After Corey Taylor of Slipknot exchanged some fighting words with WWE wrestler Baron Corbin on Twitter, the two met face to face — and Corey socked Baron square in the face!
Corey Taylor, 41, may be the lead singer of Slipknot, but he sure knows how to pack a punch! While attending the Aftershock festival in Sacramento, California, on Oct. 23, things got heated between him and WWE NXT wrestler Baron Corbin, 31. Despite their difference in size, Corey wasn’t afraid to show Baron who’s boss by totally smacking him!
Before Corey attended Aftershock to watch Baron take on fellow wrester Samoa Joe, he and Baron took some shots at each other on social media. Sitting front row at the match, Corey quickly caught the eye of Baron, and suddenly the Twitter feud was brought to life. Baron got up in Corey’s face after mocking him, and once Baron poked Corey hard in the shoulder, Corey had no trouble throwing a punch right back! Watch the video below!
We have to say, that was pretty impressive! As you can clearly tell from the video, Baron is no small dude. In fact, he’s a full foot taller than Corey! Standing at 6′ 8″ over Corey’s 5′ 7″, he definitely could’ve scared Corey off. But Corey even warned Baron on Twitter that he wasn’t going to back down — and boy did he stick to his word!
Considering the beef between him and Baron, Corey was probably pretty satisfied with his successful punch. Plus, Samoa Joe came out with the victory in the match, so Corey seemingly won in two ways! If there’s one thing wrestlers should take away from Corey’s amazing feat, it’s to never underestimate the power of people like him!
