Watch Slipknot's Corey Taylor Slap The Taste Out Of WWE NXT Star Baron Corbin's Mouth
Former NFL offensive lineman and three-time Golden Gloves boxing champion Baron Corbin was left rocked (but not rolled) by a slap after provoking Slipknot frontman Corey with a poke in the chest.
"Slipknot ain’t nobody in my house," jibed the 6ft 8in Corbin, who was performing at the metal festival in Sacramento, California along with a host of his fellow NXT stars.
But it seems Corbin - who had traded insults with Corey on Twitter in the days leading up to the festival - might be better off picking on people his own size after eating the open-handed blow from the 41-year-old musician.
To add further insult to mild injury, the slap lead directly to Corbin losing his bout against opponent Samoa Joe, who hurled a discombobulated Baron into the steps at ringside before choking him out for the submission.
What's the beef between music artists and ring artists, though? Only earlier this year Machine Gun Kelly got a right whupping from Kevin Owens after he appeared on Raw.
C'mon guys, hug it out. Just don't make that a bear hug.
