NXT territory (2013–present)

Corbin made ​​his televised debut on May 8 in NXT but in a losing effort against Damien Sandow. On May 29, Corbin unsuccessfully participated in a #1 contendership battle royal for the NXT Championship, being eliminated early in the match by Mason Ryan. Afterward he made several appearances as an enhancement talent, with the battle royal to determine the #1 contender to the NXT Championship on May 8, 2014 being his last televised match prior to his re-debut.

Baron Corbin would then be re-packaged after a long absence on NXT Takeover II, defeating CJ Parker in his official re-debut match at the special event. On the September 18 edition of NXT, Corbin again defeated Parker on their rematch from Takeover II. Corbin would then win many matches in the least amount of time until crossing paths with Bull Dempsey, who also has won his matches shortly, to see who can one-up each other in having the least amount of time in their matches. On NXT Takeover: R Evolution, Corbin would have a staredown with Dempsey while exiting from the ring to the ramp after winning his match that night. On January 14 edition of NXT, their highly anticipated one on one match was finally held in which Corbin won also breaking Dempsey's undefeated streak in the process. Corbin advanced to the semifinals of an NXT Championship number one contender's tournament by defeating Bull Dempsey but was eliminated by Adrian Neville, ending his undefeated streak. It was later announced that Corbin would have a no disqualification match with Dempsey at the NXT special event, NXT Takeover: Rival.
