Steve Corino On Why He Left ROH To Join WWE, Working With Tian Bing

WWE Performance Center Coach Steve Corino

WWE Performance Center coach and former Ring of Honor color commentator Steve Corino recently spoke with Justin Barrasso of Sports Illustrated to talk about various topics. Here are the highlights:

On his decision to leave Ring of Honor to work for WWE:

“I can show my enthusiasm and passion for the business here at the Performance Center. I was lucky enough to learn from Kevin Sullivan and Dusty Rhodes and Terry Funk, and their passion still lives in me, so I’m passing that on.”

On working with WWE’s first China-born wrestler Tian Bing:

“I’ve been to Japan over 80 times, and I wished he spoke Japanese so I could work with him. I found out he can speak perfect Japanese, and we just built this perfect rapport. He wants to learn. We have a different connection. Some of the guys who come here after a career in football don’t know Satoshi Kojima, but when I mention Satoshi Kojima to him, he always wants to learn more. He is an incredible talent and improving every day.”

Corino also talked about ECW and more. You can read the entire interview here.
