Corbin wants to remain with NXT for the foreseeable future. 

For several months, Baron Corbin has been part of the NXT brand. He is labeled as a ‘free agent’ but his primary brand coming out of the Draft has been NXT. 

Corbin was one of the talents present at the WWE SummerSlam media junket. He was interviewed by Joey Karni of The Angle Podcast and said he’s fighting to stay in NXT. Corbin would like to remain there for a couple more months. 

I’m still on all three shows. But I am fighting to stay in NXT a little bit because I really just wanna give our audience a good break from me, you know? Give them a few months without me driving them nuts. So I would like to personally stay in NXT for a couple more months and just really fine-tune the details of what I’m trying to bring to the people and I mean, NXT’s great but I’m also enjoying working the superstars down there. They’re hungry, they got a lot of energy, a lot of excitement, they love this. It elevates your passion… So it’s a fun place to be. They could call me for SmackDown tonight. I don’t know. I don’t know what’s happening but, I’m loving it down there.

The latest edition of NXT saw Corbin pick up a win over Andre Chase. At Great American Bash, he clashed with Gable Steveson and their match ended in a double count out.
