Dr Disrespect “threatens” wrestling star Baron Corbin over NFL opinion

Superstar Twitch streamer Dr Disrespect was looking to pick a fight against WWE wrestling star Baron Corbin, all over a football opinion.

A number of comparisons can be drawn between the explosive personality of DrDisrespect and the equally edgy attitudes of stars in the wrestling sphere.

Ever wanted to see the Doc step foot inside a ring? That opportunity might be drawing near as the streamer decided to call out a former WWE United States Champion, tongue-in-cheek of course.

It all started on September 8, which was the first full day of action in the National Football League, when the Doc put out a “bold prediction,” regarding who will win the Super Bowl.

“My bold NFL prediction of the year: if Lamar Jackson stays healthy, Ravens are winning the Super Bowl,” he tweeted.

The tweet was caught by Corbin, who is a gamer himself and livestreams on Mixer, and he expressed his disagreement with the Two-Time’s prediction with a popular GIF of Danny Devito shaking his head.

At this point, the Doc hilariously took things to a whole new level, hitting the WWE wrestler with a threat, if you can even call it that.

“If I were you, I’d watch your mouth Baron,” he responded. “Those V-neck collared shirts wouldn’t save you in the ring against the 6’8 gaming stallion.”

While it’s not the first time that Dr Disrespect has flaunted his height on social media, there’s no way that he honestly believes he could take on the wrestler.

Formerly a member of the NFL’s Indianapolis Colts roster, Corbin weighs 285lbs and matches the Doc in height at 6 ft 8 inches.

As much as fans would like to see the two engage in a real hand-to-hand battle, you would be hard-pressed to find even one who would put his money on the Blockbuster champion to be the last one standing.

Obviously, as is usually the case with the Doc, the whole thing was just a comedic act, although don’t be surprised if the two decided to join forces in gaming, and possibly even stream together.
