Not only did NXT Champion Kevin Owens surpass expectations last night in his match against WWE United States Champion John Cena at Elimination Chamber, he beat the promotion's biggest superstar clean in the middle of the ring.
Owens, who had a successful career in Ring of Honor (ROH) and countless indie promotions across North America, has certainly come a long way since entering the wrestling business. His unique style was often masked by his physique, yet it seems like his naysayers are now hanging their heads.
Not only did Owens make a major impact weeks after joining NXT, he's made one on the main roster, and faces Cena in a rematch at Money In The Bank in two weeks. In a short video above, an emotional Owens addresses the WWE Universe and speaks about his accomplishments after having his fair share of haters.
