It was the slap heard ‘round the Interwebz! Slipknot’s Corey Taylor smacked wrestler Baron Corbin at last weekend’s Aftershock Festival, helping a grateful Samoa Joe win the WWE NXT match.
But here’s what you haven’t seen.
Earlier in the day, Corbin interrupted APTV’s backstage interview with Taylor. The trash talk and taunting, which eventually culminated in Corbin poking Taylor in the chest and Taylor thanking him with a smack, actually began at this year’s APMAS. It was there that WWE superstar and APTV correspondent Corey Graves first had words with Slipknot’s frontman, igniting a rivalry that spilled over to social media.
Following last weekend’s altercation, Graves Tweeted “#ThisAintOver.”
Watch Corbin bumrush Josh Bernstein’s APTV interview with Corey Taylor, backstage at the Aftershock Festival in Sacramento, California.
