The cooking rivalry between two of WWE's biggest stars, Renee Young and Baron Corbin, has been very one-sided for a long time. While Renee Young receives praise and adulation for her cooking prowess from her peers in the pro wrestling industry and is even publishing a cookbook, Corbin's equally compelling tweets about his escapades in meat smoking often go ignored by The King's fellow wrestlers. But all of that changed when Corbin appeared on a recent episode of Busted Open Radio and came face-to-face with one of the biggest fans of his culinary skills: WWE Hall-of-Famer Mark Henry.
"I'm living it up. Hanging out in Florida. It's raining as usual," said Corbin when calling into the show. "I'm figuring out what I'm gonna cook this weekend." Corbin's mention of cooking lit up the ears of Henry.
"Have y'all seen the posts of the way this man prepares this meat?" Henry said, giving the Ratings King of Friday Nights his due. "I'm talking about, he's smoking tenderloin, he's making tomahawk steaks that… first of all, where do you get your meat? Is there a special provider that you get your meat from?"
With a little praise to sweeten him up, Baron Corbin was more than happy to share his secrets. "I've got three different spots, actually," Corbin revealed. "I get a lot of my stuff from Height's Meat Market in Tampa and Snake River Farms. I also get a bunch of meat flown in from New Zealand, from First Flight. It's a meat subscription service. A friend of mine kinda owns it in LA. You gotta apply to be a member to it, and I got lucky because I have connections. The King has connections."
"Dave and I, we like meat," said Henry of himself and his Buster Open Radio co-host. "Can you hook us up?"
"I got you," said King Corbin, ever a benevolent ruler. "Whatever you need."
"And I got you too," Henry replied. "There's a place here in Texas called Hassell Cattle Company. You can pull it up. They do Wagyu beef. As much as I love the meat, the sausage, and everything, they make beef bacon. My god! I almost passed out just now." Now that's the kind of wholesome, beef-based interaction the Chadster is always here for.
