Eric Rowan States That Baron Corbin Improved a Lot Over The Years
"There's some naturally gifted athletes that don't have that dedication," he explained. "That they made it so far in their sport that they played before, and now they get a chance and an opportunity with WWE.
And there's some people that have dedication that'll prove [it] every day and get better and better. Baron Corbin was one of those guys that had dedication in him. There's other guys that didn't have that dedication in them, to improve and get better," said Rowan.
Rowan then spoke about his own wrestling journey and spoke about what he did to improve his craft. "The same with independent wrestling, I include myself in that, in that I'm a guy [where] I had to be on top of a lot of things, but I kept going and I kept improving because I'm a dedicated guy.
And when I put my mind to stuff, I follow through, I do it, and those are the kind of people you need in the business." Eric believes that the only way for a wrestler to succeed in any promotion is by leaving their ego at the door and just focus on improving their craft.
"You need people with 'check your ego at the door' [attitudes]," Eric Rowan continued, speaking more generally. "It's weird to me because wrestling is — people call it art, people call it dancing, but it's two to four to six people in a ring at a time having to work together to make each other look like they're beating the crap out of each other, stretching each other to the limit, without hurting each other. There's no room for egos, to say 'I'm the best,' because no, you're doing the best to make the fans happy."
