Kevin Owens recently spoke to MLive.com where he opened up about a few topics from his history in the ring to whether or not he would encourage his children to wrestle.
Although he has little to lament about concerning his career, Kevin Owens expressed some sadness that he will never be able to step in the ring with one of his heroes, the Heartbreak Kid Shawn Michaels
“Michaels is the reason I became a wrestler in the first place. I saw him when I was 11. I was a scrawny kid at the time. People thought I was 7 or 8. So to see the smallest guy on the show be the best guy on the show really spoke to me. I said if he can do it, I can do it. Now I get to share different pieces of his wisdom with him when he comes to a show here or there. I try to sit as close to him as I can and listen to him and discuss wrestling, family and life. It’s so great to talk about those things with someone I look up to so much. I can’t even imagine what it would have been like to have been in the ring with him.”
Although The Prizefighter vs The Heartbreak Kid might not seem likely you can always make it happen in video game world. But it would be hard to imagine a match with a better build as Kevin Owens pushes HBK to his breaking point for one final match.
