WWE’s Baron Corbin looks unrecognisable in 2011 throwback picture before incredible body transformation

COR BLIMEY

WWE star Baron Corbin is almost unrecognisable after undergoing a drastic body transformation over the last ten years.

The former NFL star uploaded a throwback from 2011 and he has lost a staggering three-and-a-half stone since then.

Corbin - real name Thomas Pestock - weighed in at 23st 10lbs in the throwback snap from when he was an offensive guard for the Arizona Cardinals.

He captioned the post: "Quick question, was it the shirt that made me look fat or my fat that made me look fat?

"Yeah the beard didn’t do me any favors either.

"That’s 332lbs drink it in. Post game pic with my boy @pauly_tamale in 2011."

After playing just two years in the NFL for the Indianapolis Colts and then the Cardinals between 2009 and 2011, Corbin signed with WWE's development system NXT in 2012.

He has since become the Money in the Bank champion - winning the ladder match in 2017.

And the 36-year-old King of the Ring is one of SmackDown's biggest stars and is currently locked in a bitter feud with the Mysterio family.

Corbin is 6ft 7in and now weighs in around 20st but has a much more defined muscular physique.

WWE Hall-of-Fame legend Booker T recently heaped praise on Corbin for his success.

He said: "I appreciate all the Kings that have come along, but Corbin has really taken the role just like I did.

"He’s believed in the role to create my own world, the SmackDown world, the SmackDown kingdom.

"This is something that Corbin has been trying to recreate.”
