Colby Corino (born August 28, 1996) is an American professional wrestler. Corino is best known for his time with Ring of Honor (ROH), and is currently wrestling for various independent promotions on the independent circuit, including PWF, PWX and CWF Mid-Atlantic Wrestling. He is the son of former NWA World Heavyweight Champion and ECW World Heavyweight Champion Steve Corino.

Alongside Lance Lude and Rob Killjoy, he is a member of The Ugly Ducklings stable.[1][2]

Professional wrestling career[edit]

Ring of Honor (2014–2016)[edit]

Corino signed a contract with Ring of Honor in 2014 and debuted soon after, joining The Decade and aligning himself with BJ Whitmer, Jimmy Jacobs and Adam Page as their "young boy". The addition of Corino to The Decade caused friction between Whitmer and Jacobs, leading to a match between the two at Supercard Of Honor IX, won by Whitmer in what would go on to be Jacobs' final match in Ring Of Honor. After Jacobs' departure, as part of the young boy storyline, Whitmer would regularly berate, embarrass and even attack Corino in front of his father, then-color commentator and former professional wrestler Steve Corino. Whitmer disbanded the stable in 2016.[3]

In early 2016, Corino participated in the ROH Top Prospect Tournament. He competed in the first round on January 9, where he was eliminated by Punisher Martinez.

On November 17, 2016, it was announced Corino would be joining the New Japan Pro-Wrestling Dojo to train as a young lion.[4]

Total Nonstop Action Wrestling (2016)[edit]

Alongside his Ugly Duckling stablemates, Corino made a guest appearance in the TNA special Total Nonstop Deletion, as part of the Tag Team Apocalypto. He was quickly eliminated by Decay (Abyss and Crazzy Steve).[5]

Independent circuit (2009–present)[edit]

Colby started wrestling for the PWF with Steve Corino.
