The Rock is one of the most successful WWE Superstars of all time, and he knows what it takes to be one of the best in the WWE. His charisma and work on the mic are unmatched. He knows how the job gets done in the ring.
It seems that he also appreciates the work that Kevin Owens has been doing ever since he made his debut from NXT back in 2015. He took to Instagram to praise him and what he has been able to do with the opportunity that he’s been given.
“Appreciate The Champ himself, Kevin Owens stopping by “The People’s Hood” to say hello. People’s Hood is the nickname for my dressing rooms.”
“We had a good laugh about the story of when I was training for my WWE comeback and title run. I was training with Curt Hawkins and Joe Henning. After our workout, me and Kurt were chopping it up about great independent wrestlers. I said ‘Dude I just saw this guy last night on YouTube names Kill Steen or something like that. He’s amazing.’ Kurt said, “That’s my good friend Kevin Owens’. I said ‘Well, tell your friends he’s bad a*s and I hope WWE signs him’. Now, five years later and relentless hard work, he’s WWE Universal Champion.”
Kevin Owens is one of the best performers that the organization has right now. He has been booked poorly over the past couple of months, but it seems that WWE is going back to booking him the way they should have from day one. This will certainly allow him to get more fans and to become one of the best we can watch.
