WWE Universal Champion Kevin Owens recently spoke with Sky Sports to talk about various topics. Here are the highlights.
What has it been like working with Chris Jericho?
“He was always a guy I looked up to. Back in the day, Raw used to air at midnight in Canada but I would stay up way past my bedtime to watch it and I remember seeing his debut and losing my mind. So to now be able to share the ring with him and do some entertaining stuff is pretty special. It’s hard to put my finger on exactly what I’m learning from him but I’m definitely learning. I don’t want to say he is learning from me but possibly he is because what makes you elite in our industry is that you never stop learning.”
Who are you most looking forward to facing in the future?
“I feel like Sami Zayn and I will definitely be in the ring together again. WrestleMania would be a logical place to have that match, especially after our bout at Battleground, which I think is the Match of the Year – I certainly haven’t seen a better one. I would also say [NXT Champion] Shinsuke Nakamura – he is a unique performer and I don’t know anyone who wouldn’t want to get in the ring with him.”
