Slipknot frontman Corey Taylor was involved in a physical altercation with WWE wrestler Baron Corbin at an event in Sacramento, California on Friday (October 23).
The incident took place at the Aftershock festival, consisting of WWE NXT wrestlers. WWE is World Wrestling Entertainment’s developmental arm, featuring up and coming stars.
Taylor was in the crowd for Corbin’s match against fellow wrestler Samoa Joe. After Corbin and Taylor exchanged heated words with one another, the rock singer slapped Corbin in the face, leading to Samoa Joe countering and picking up a victory.
