Baron Corbin was born in Lenexa, Kansas on September 13, 1984. He is the son of Mona and Steven Pestock – his father passed away from complications from Creutzfeldt–Jakob disease. He has one sibling: Danny.

Baron studied at Northwest Missouri State University, where he played NCAA Division II college football. In his junior year, Baron became starting offensive guard and won four straight Division II National Championships. For his efforts, Baron was named honorable mention all MIAA in 2007 and first team all-MIAA in 2008.

It is reported that he is not in any relationship at the moment.

Prior to joining the National Football League (NFL), Baron participated in boxing by becoming a two-time Amateur Kansas-Missouri Golden Gloves regional champion in 2007. A year later, he competed at the Golden Gloves National Tournament of Champions.

Baron’s professional football career started in 2009 when he was signed by the Indianapolis Colts. He was released and re-signed by the Colts in the same month, but was released again a month later. In January 2010, Baron was signed to a futures contract with the Arizona Cardinals. He was released eight months later and sent to the team’s practice squad. He was released by the team in September 2011.

In August 2012, Baron signed a contract with World Wrestling Entertainment (WWE) and was sent to the company’s developmental system known as NXT. Baron was trained by Billy Gunn, Bill DeMott and Dusty Rhodes – he also cites Corey Graves as assisting him in developing his “Lone Wolf” character.

He would make his in-ring debut at a live event just two months later. Baron would then make his NXT television debut in May 2013.

Baron would make his main roster debut at WrestleMania XXXII and win the Andre the Giant Memorial Battle Royal. A night later, Baron made his Raw debut and entered into a feud with Dolph Ziggler. At the 2016 WWE Draft, Baron was signed to SmackDown Live. He competed at WrestleMania XXXIII in an Intercontinental Championship match with the ultra popular Dean Ambrose.

We estimate that Baron Corbin’s net worth is $250,000 (2017).

So how much is $250,000 really?

$250,000 could pay for much of the pyro that went off during WrestleMania XXXIII. $250,000 could also pay for the contracts of a few NXT talents.
