Former WWE Universal Champion Kevin Owens was recently a guest on E&C’s Pod of Awesomeness hosted by Edge & Christian. He spoke on a wide variety of topics about his WWE career. Here are the highlights:

On his WWE Universal Title run:

“To me I thought that was it. I am the Universal Champion and this is going to solidify me as the top guy that I have always wanted to be. But I don’t think it really did. It didn’t turn out to be what I was hoping- it didn’t turn out to be this thing that would make me a top guy, the way like I felt that it would”

On his matches with AJ Styles:

“I felt like I hit a little — I kinda plateaued in a way,” Owens said. “You (Edge) say you enjoyed the series of matches with AJ and I’m glad you did and hopefully a lot of people did as well but I don’t know if I can say that I did, to be honest. I don’t know if I was putting out my best stuff at the time and once that ended and I transitioned into that thing with Shane [McMahon] I did feel that working with Shane is a big deal and Vince, you know throwing himself into the mix — I knew that you know, that’s as big as it gets.”

“You know not that many people get to do that with Vince, especially nowadays. If you look at the last five, six years there hasn’t been a whole lot of people who got to physically assault Vince in the way I did. So obviously I knew that was a big deal and I did think that maybe this is what I’ve been waiting for and so far it feels like that was it. Now I feel like things have been taken to a new level for me since that happened and I’m gonna try to run with it as good as I can.”
