Good question.
Which Corsola tho. Galarian or Original?
to add on to both answers, corsola is super easy to take care of using Knock Off, which gets rid of the Eviolite and is super effective

The main reason Cursola is in NU is because of its Horrible Physical Bulk along with Speed. It has 60/50 HP and Defense, along with 30 Speed. This forces it to run a Focus Sash and not run anything to take advantage of its wonderful Special Attack and Defense. Even with Weak Armor, Cursola's Speed still is horrible. Its horrible Physical Bulk led Cursola to NU.

Now, onto Galarian Corsola. This is mostly because it is outclassed by other Eviolite users such as Porygon2 and Chansey. Even though Both have a Higher HP which is desirable on a Wall. Porygon2 Does have slightly lower Defenses, but it overall has more bulk. It is the same with Chansey, but not the Physical Bulk. Now this is just stats, now let's move to roles. Corsola runs a Physical Wall set with Will-o-Wisp and Strength Sap. Even Corsola is outclassed by Physical Walls such as Hippowdon and Skarmory who has access to Hazard Setting and annoyance with Whirlwind. While Corsola may have more bulk combined with its moves, it was still worse than these 2. Also, another reason may be the Common Urshifu- Single and Dragapult capitalize on Corsola's weaknesses. So, It being outclassed by other Eviolite and Physical Walls led to it in NU as well.

Cursola is NU due to its awful defense stat, and low speed. What good is trapping with Whirlpool+Perish Body if Whirlpool wears off when you faint? It's got a gargantuan special attack and massive spDef, but physical attackers are only so common. Corsola is NU because Will-O-Wisp stalling is annoying, sure, and Strength Sap easily forces switches, but it cant do much to Sp.Atkers thanks to night Shade only being 3HKO or 4HKO on average. It is set-up fodder against special based setup sweepers, and you know how common calm mind is. Yeah, not very good. The only thing it can do against set-up sweepers is very slowly chip their health with Will-o-wisp which only does 6% each turn, and with lack of Leftovers+going up against Modest or Timid Pokemon, Corsola will be going down quickly to a +1 or +2 special attack.
