KO recently appeared on E&C’s Pod Of Awesomeness where he admitted his work with The Phenomenal One wasn’t his best work. But it did lead to a much higher level in his career.
“I felt like I hit a little — I kinda plateaued in a way,” Owens said. “You (Edge) say you enjoyed the series of matches with AJ and I’m glad you did and hopefully a lot of people did as well but I don’t know if I can say that I did, to be honest. I don’t know if I was putting out my best stuff at the time and once that ended and I transitioned into that thing with Shane [McMahon] I did feel that working with Shane is a big deal and Vince, you know throwing himself into the mix — I knew that you know, that’s as big as it gets.”
“You know not that many people get to do that with Vince, especially nowadays. If you look at the last five, six years there hasn’t been a whole lot of people who got to physically assault Vince in the way I did. So obviously I knew that was a big deal and I did think that maybe this is what I’ve been waiting for and so far it feels like that was it.”
“Now I feel like things have been taken to a new level for me since that happened and I’m gonna try to run with it as good as I can.”
Kevin Owens solidified himself as a huge name in WWE when his rivalry with Shane-O came to a head at Hell In A Cell. Now we get to sit back and enjoy a much different KO as a shoo-in for the future of WWE’s main event picture.
