- Above is new video of Acting RAW General Manager Baron Corbin talking to Byron Saxton after WWE Crown Jewel about his cheap shot to Braun Strowman and about how SmackDown Commissioner Shane McMahon surprised everyone with the World Cup tournament win, defeating Dolph Ziggler in the finals after an injury angle with The Miz.
Regarding his cheap shot to Strowman with the WWE Universal Title belt before Brock Lesnar became the new champion, Corbin praised Lesnar for destroying Strowman. Corbin said he is looking to solidify the future of RAW and that's what Lesnar will do as he is the Superstar of Superstars. Corbin said Lesnar will carry the brand for no telling how long. When speaking on Shane's tournament win, Corbin said Shane inserted himself in a match he had no business being in and Ziggler should be the winner. Corbin called it a poor display of sportsmanship by Shane, adding that the cup Shane is carrying is tainted as he did not earn it. Corbin called the win a joke and said Shane is a joke, but he hopes he sees Shane in the future.
