— As noted earlier here on the website, WWE pulled Kevin Owens from all of their scheduled live events this weekend.
The reason the NXT Champion was pulled is because he is now scheduled to begin working WWE live events the weekend after the Money In The Bank pay-per-view, where he will be taking on WWE United States Champion John Cena in a rematch from the WWE Elimination Chamber event.
Kevin Owens will make his WWE live event debut at The Dow Event Center in Saginaw, Michigan on Friday, June 19th.
WWE Money In The Bank is scheduled for Sunday, June 14, 2015 at Nationwide Arena in Columbus, Ohio.
— In a new Glide Magazine interview with Chris Jericho, the part-time WWE performer and Fozzy front man talks about balancing his pro wrestling and music careers, and how he doesn’t see much difference in what he does in wrestling compared to what he does in music.
Below is an excerpt from the interview.
“When I was a kid I wanted to be in a rock band and I wanted to be a wrestler. Twelve years old I started playing in bands and I love rock & roll and I love music, I love playing and I also really love wrestling. I kind of thought I could probably do that too. It’s something I had a real passion for. There’s never been like one or the other. It’s always been a duality there whereas I believe in both and I love both and I’ve done both my entire life. It’s not like I started in music when Fozzy started. I was playing in high school bands and garage bands since I was twelve years old so it’s something I have always done. Even when I started wrestling, I still played and recorded demos and played in bands and did what I could. So it’s just always something that I’ve done. There’re two halves to what I do career-wise and I don’t see the difference between the two. They are both very much based in an entertainment element; a live, grooving off of the audience, very hard hitting, aggressive forms of entertainment that are both very contingent on the energy that you get from the crowd. And that’s kind of the same properties that I use as the frontman of Fozzy, the same properties I use when I’m wrestling. It’s making that connection with the audience and that’s the most important thing.”
