- Tom Pestock won three regional Golden Gloves boxing championships and competed in several grappling championships while at Northwest Missouri State University in the late 2000s, as well as playing NCAA Division II football as an offensive guard. Between 2009 and 2011, he was on the roster of the National Football League’s Indianapolis Colts and Arizona Cardinals.
- In August 2012, Pestock made the move into professional wrestling when he signed a developmental deal with
WWE, making his debut at a house show of their developmental brand NXT in October 2012 under the name Baron Corbin.
- He appeared as enhancement talent in NXT television in 2013 and early 2014 before being repackaged as a dominant powerhouse who defeated his opponents in a matter of seconds, leading to a feud with another undefeated wrestler, Bull Dempsey, upon whom Corbin inflicted his first defeat in January 2015.
- Initially a babyface, Corbin began to exhibit more arrogance over his accomplishments and disdain for the NXT audience’s perceived favoritism towards products of the independent wrestling scene. His next feud was with the veteran Rhyno, who he defeated at the TakeOver: Unstoppable event in May.
