WWE Universe Unfairly Maligns Baron Corbin as Real Hit-And-Run Driver

Baron Corbin is currently leading a WWE.com poll asking fans who they believe is the real culprit behind the hit-and-run attack that injured WWE Superstar Elias on last week's episode of WWE Smackdown. Jeff Hardy was initially thought to be behind the incident, as he was found in nearby bushes disoriented and smelling like the same alcohol found in the car used in the attack. In addition, Hardy's well-known history of drug and alcohol problems led police on the scene to arrest Hardy and cost him his spot in the Intercontinental Championship Tournament. However, Hardy returned later in the night to attack Sheamus, indicating that he was probably innocent all along. WWE recently released an update on Elias's condition:

WWE Digital has learned that Elias is in the hospital and has suffered broken ribs and a torn pectoral muscle after last night's hit-and-run attack.

After initially being apprehended, WWE Digital reported last night that Jeff Hardy was released from custody by the Orlando police after successfully passing the required sobriety tests. Hardy was absolved of the charges of public intoxication, driving under the influence, and the hit-and-run on Elias earlier tonight.

Stay tuned to WWE social and digital platforms as the situation continues to develop.

Now, naturally, one would think that Sheamus, who Hardy attacked and who has been Hardy's rival in recent weeks, would be the most likely suspect to have hit Elias with a car and blame it on Hardy. However, in a new poll on WWE.com, fans have voted for Baron Corbin as the real culprit behind the attack. Corbin current leads the poll with 44% of votes, followed by Sheamus at 34% and AJ Styles at 9%. 14% of voters believe it was someone else.

To say that The Chadster is very disappointed with the WWE Universe today would be a significant understatement. Yes, King Corbin has recently been involved in a feud with Elias, but King Corbin would never stoop to using a car to attack one of his opponents. Additionally, it couldn't be more evident that Sheamus is the one with the motivation to carry out this vicious attack and frame job on Hardy. Clearly, the WWE Universe is biased against Baron Corbin because of his good lucks, wrestling skills, winning record, and ratings dominance. Anyone who voted for Baron Corbin in that poll should be ashamed of themselves.
