WWE superstar Kevin Owens didn’t need long to go from NXT product to one of the top faces on the main event roster. The former Universal Champion got a major push in late 2016/early 2017 thanks to his friendship with future Hall of Famer, Chris Jericho.
Prior to WrestleMania 33, Owens turned on Jericho and ended the friendship. He then got to face his boyhood idol on the Grandest Stage of Them All, defeating Y2J via pinfall. Though the match had tremendous buildup and turned out to be a dream come true for Owens, he and Vince McMahon apparently weren’t pleased with how it turned out.
On Sunday night, WWE Network premiered WWE 365 and followed Owens’ journey through WrestleMania 33. Owens revealed that he wasn’t happy with his match against Jericho, and later went up to Vince McMahon to ask “are we good?” The WWE chairman fired back with a simple, “No.”
Owens later confessed that he will “get in his own head” sometimes, and it was the first time in a while that Vince wasn’t pleased with how one of his matches went down.
Well, Owens needn’t to be worried about that one bad match. WWE never stopped pushing K.O. who even got a victory over Shane McMahon (may I add that he’s Vince’s son), at Hell in a Cell. Owens has been one of McMahon’s favorite superstars of this era, so the push wasn’t going to end from that one bad match.
But Owens hasn’t been immune to Vince’s bad side. Besides this WrestleMania spat, Owens and Sami Zayn were both sent home for “conduct deemed detrimental to the WWE.” The punishment didn’t last long, as the two men interfered during the 5-on-5 interbrand match at Survivor Series, though.
No WWE superstar aces every match of their career. Owens has been able to learn from his mistakes, which is why he continues to flourish as one of the company’s top stars.
