Kevin Owens on making it to WWE, Triple H, winning the Universal Title, more

Newly crowned WWE Universal Champion Kevin Owens spoke with Slam Sports about winning the Universal Title two weeks ago on RAW in Houston.

“It’s hard to put into words what that felt like,” he admitted. “I was 11 years when I first saw a WWE show, it was WrestleMania 11. A year later, I was fully, fully hooked on WWE and I was watching every Raw, every Superstars, every show that was on TV at the time, and every pay-per-view of course. To win the WWE Universal title, which in essence (is) the same title that Shawn Michaels or Steve Austin held — there’s the WWE World title on SmackDown, but for Raw, the premiere championship is the WWE Universal title — it’s really hard to put into words how that moment felt.”

Owens gives Triple H full credit for bringing him into WWE NXT. Owens stated that Triple H gave him a chance that he needed despite the way he looks.

“Triple H is the reason I’m here. He’s the one who took a chance on me because a lot has been said about how I look and how I don’t have the typical WWE superstar look, even though I feel like over the past three or four years that whole stereotype has been destroyed. Still, it was something that people would always point to as to why they thought I wouldn’t make it in the WWE even if I got hired. Well, not only did I get hired, but last Monday, I won the Universal title and Triple H literally handed it to me. People can say what they want about that, but to me, it was a pretty special moment.”

Owens also talked about Survivor Series and more. You can read the entire interview here.
