There are some new WWE rumors floating around that one particular "SmackDown Live" superstar may be part of another big push in the future. Reports have surfaced that Vince McMahon and company are still high on "The Lone Wolf" Baron Corbin even after his failed "Money in the Bank" cash-in and recent drop to the mid-card level or lower. That could mean big things are on the way for the heel superstar who represents the blue brand.

A report from Ringside News has suggested that Vince McMahon still views Baron Corbin as a "future major player" out of the current superstars that aren't part of the main card. Corbin was teased as being part of that big picture during his win at the "Money in the Bank" PPV last year where he earned the shot at the title for any time and anyplace.

However, when he finally went to make a cash-in on then-WWE Champion Jinder Mahal, he was thwarted in his efforts by John Cena. That led to a match between Cena and Corbin which Corbin won.

'WrestleMania' appearances

Corbin has held the WWE United States Championship for well over two months and also has won one of the previous Andre the Giant Memorial Battle Royal matches at "WrestleMania." His United States title run lasted for 70 days last year, ending with a loss in a Triple Threat match to Dolph Ziggler. After dropping that title, Corbin was involved in stories which basically helped enhance other talents. His past two "WrestleMania" appearances were not on the main card, though. He was featured on last year's pre-show when he challenged Dean Ambrose for the WWE Intercontinental title and lost.

Corbin was featured on the pre-show again this year as part of the latest Andre the Giant Memorial Battle Royal.

Time for Triple Threat

With all of that said, there have been some reports issued that Baron Corbin will be featured in an upcoming Triple Threat WWE Championship match at the WWE's "Extreme Rules 2018" pay-per-view. That match will also feature current champion AJ Styles and his rival Shinsuke Nakamura. The WWE will be doing one of their "Superstar Shakeup" events this coming week, leaving the possibility open for Corbin to switch rosters. It's currently unknown if Baron Corbin will remain on the "SmackDown Live" brand this week, or might switch places and join Monday's "Raw" roster for his next push. Fans will certainly be waiting to see what's next for "The Lone Wolf" but based on the rumors of Vince McMahon's opinion of him, it could be an interesting main card run.
