Corey Taylor of Slipknot looks to be advancing a career in pro wrestling after getting into a dust up with NXT's Baron Corbin at this past weekend's Aftershock Festival. Taylor laid an open handed slap on the 6'8" Corbin, after the latter poked him in the chest at the Sacramento fest.

The incident followed up a social media beef between the pair, which escalated in real life.

"Slipknot ain't nobody in my house," Corbin said before giving Taylor a prod. "Got it?" Taylor's head slap got a big applause from the crowd. Corbin proceeded to get beat in the ring by Samoa Joe.

In 2011, Taylor talked about his love for the sport with Wrestling with Pop Culture.

"I've been a wrestling fan since I was a kid. If you embrace it for what it is, which is entertainment, I have no illusions about the fact of if it's real or not. But I know it's physically taxing and it takes great skill to make it look good and no skill to make it look crappy. I know the people who rise to the top are the best in the business and it's almost a metaphor for the music business. People come and go, but legends stay forever."

Slipknot's latest album is .5: The Gray Chapter.
