- During his first night on the main roster at WrestleMania 32, Corbin was put into the André the Giant Memorial Battle Royal, seemingly as one of the extra bodies just to fill the numbers. Nobody put much faith into the newcomer, especially when other superstars, such as Kane, Mark Henry and the previous winner, The Big Show, were pegged as favorites to win the match, while Corbin entered the ring without much fanfare. But when Kane eliminated two of the four left in the ring, Corbin took his chance and sent the Devil's Favorite Demon over the top rope, immortalizing his name alongside Cesaro and The Big Show.
- In the 2017 Royal Rumble, he eliminated Braun Strowman almost singlehandedly (Sami Zayn and Dean Ambrose had to weaken him first).
- Beating The Miz at Survivor Series 2017 despite being outnumbered 3-to-1 due to the presence of the Miztourage and receiving a severe cheap shot to the leg by Curtis Axel halfway through the match. Bonus points for capping off his victory by noting to a defeated Miz that his hand went up and Miz's mouth went shut.
Awesome / Baron Corbin
