King Corbin On Undertaker’s Influence On His Career & Vince McMahon’s Support
Corbin recently spoke to Chiefs Wire about the influence the Undertaker has had on his career.
“He’s a guy I grab onto every time he’s around, and he seems very willing to help,” Corbin said. “He’s really played a significant role helping me find success and fame.”
Corbin also spoke about why he feels Vince McMahon is a fan of his during an interview with Cheap Heat.
“I think Vince McMahon has been a fan of mine because I’m a big dude, a little bit old school, and have legitimate toughness. He sees motivation in certain guys and certain guys want to have it and some don’t.”
