15Helped: Kevin Owens
Kevin Owens' debut on the WWE main roster was the best introduction any wrestler could only dream of. Owens cleanly defeated John Cena in his first match to make a statement that he was there to be a major player. Keep in mind that the number of wrestlers to get
a clean win over Cena during his reign as a top star could be counted on one hand. Cena saw something special in Owens to allow him such a victory.
Owens revealed on the Talk is Jericho podcast that Cena actually went out of his way to write a letter expressing gratitude before meeting Kevin’s young son and huge Cena fan, Owen. Cena has publicly praised Owens and definitely views him a special performer. The feud between the two set the tone for Owens becoming a huge star in the WWE.
