Kevin Owens Reacts To AOP’s Release From WWE, WALTER/Ilja Dragunov (Video)


WWE NXT UK World Champion WALTER posted the following video today, offering some praise for his next challenger in Ilja Dragunov. He said,

“We both grew up in the same system, we share history together … Ilja is an honest, hard working man with principles, who shares the same passion for the sport that I do. But to be honest, everyone else that you’ve put in front of me is a great competitor – Trent Seven, Tyler Bate, Pete Dunne. One thing will never change: that is me being the NXT UK champion, and being the one that got chosen to protect and restore the honor of this great sport.”


Following the news of the Authors of Pain (AOP) being released from WWE on Friday, Kevin Owens took to Twitter to praise them. He said,

“Those guys beat the hell out of me for months…and I can say with complete honesty that I enjoyed every second of it. Good luck, boys. Hopefully, we’ll share a ring again one day and if so, you can bet you have some receipts coming you way!”
