Kevin Owens recently spoke with Indian Express to promote WrestleMania 32. Here are the highlights.
On not fitting the WWE mold:
I don’t fit the typical WWE Superstar mold. People always associate the WWE with very muscly guys who look like they can tear your head off and I don’t look like that. If anything that helps me stand out and I’m very proud of [that]. I was told many times by many people that I wouldn’t make it to where I am now. But that never mattered to me because I knew that I would make it here. If someone wants to be a WWE Superstar the smartest thing would be to get good training and work hard. It sounds very corny and almost something John Cena would have written on his t-shirt. You can’t let people tell you, you can’t do something. I’m living example of how that doesn’t matter.
On his relationship with Triple H and Vince McMahon:
I talk to Vince as much as I can. He obviously is the busiest man I know. Vince, at any time on RAW, or SmackDown or on a pay-per-view, is thinking about a million things – running the show basically. I have a good relationship with him. I’m still getting to know him. I still feel like we are building a relationship. Me and Triple H are closer because of my time in NXT. He ultimately made the call to hire me and sign me on a WWE contract. That’s something I will always be grateful for. I’ve got to work a lot closer with Triple H in the ring. I know him more on a personal level than I do Vince. We talk about our kids and stuff like that. They both are very different in a way but they have the same goal – of making WWE as entertaining as possible. My favorite thing on RAW, if I’m not performing is to sit in the gorilla position where Vince and Triple H work as well as Road Dogg, Billy Kidman and all these people that make the show work and just observe how people do that stuff. Because who knows where I will end up one day. It’s fascinating.
