Kevin Owens On His ROH Stint, Tyler Breeze Discusses His Return To UpUpDownDown



During a recent appearance on “Wrestle Radio Australia” ahead of Saturday’s WWE Elimination Chamber: Perth pay-per-view event, Kevin Owens discussed his evolution from his Ring of Honor days and how he doesn’t look back at that old era much. He said,

“I mean, this is a lot closer to myself than I am, you know, the Ring of Honor stuff. A lot of it was about shocking people and trying to get my name out there and for better or for worse, you know? There’s a lot of things I did back then that I would not do today. You know what I mean? So I’m glad that I’ve managed to get to where I wanted to get to, and the Ring of Honor years are great years for me, but they’re not necessarily years I even look back on.”

He continued, “I don’t really watch that stuff back. If I did, I’d probably cringe at a lot of stuff I did. You know, licking people’s blood and just a lot of crazy things in the ring that I probably shouldn’t have been doing. But, you know, it all paid off ultimately. I am where I wanted to go.”

On a recent edition of the “Developmentally Speaking” podcast, former WWE Superstar Tyler Breeze discussed how he returned to the UpUpDownDown YouTube channel, which is owned by WWE.

You can check out some highlights from the podcast below:

On coming to an agreement to appear on UpUpDownDown: “I’m gonna say probably within six months, I was still doing a lot of stuff outside of the ring, UpUpDownDown, stuff like that. Again, these were conversations that I’d had to where yes, I was making extra money, but also, you’ve got to look at my value outside of the ring and the other stuff that I’m doing, so I had my fingers in enough pies that you needed me to be a part of certain things. So yeah, within six months, I think we came back to an agreement. All of a sudden, we were doing more stuff, and still working, just not wrestling.”

On coaching at his own wrestling school alongside Shawn Spears: “It’s good. I really like it. I really like it a lot. I’ve kind of always gravitated towards the coaching aspect anyway, where I’ve always liked working with people and seeing the lightbulbs go off and getting through to people, figuring out, it’s almost like a puzzle, how to figure out how to get through to somebody with a certain thing. I’ve always enjoyed that part. We did that through NXT and even on the main roster as we were kind of wrestling too. So opening up the school and getting that going is really fun. All the stuff with UpUpDownDown is always a blast, getting to see my friends. Everything’s just so fast-moving.”

On still getting to see friends who are with WWE: “There’s a lot of people from my generation, they’re either done wrestling or they’ve gone and moved onto other things, so when I get to see the friends that are still with WWE, it’s awesome. So I love being a part of it still. I love anything that we get to do. Now, it’s almost like, like I said, I was kind of burnt out a little bit. So, ‘Hey, we’ve got this to do,’ it’s like, ‘Ugh, I don’t want to do that.’ Now it’s like, ‘Yeah, whatever you want, man.’ I’m good, I’m good all around. So a lot of options, lot of options of stuff we’ve been doing with the school and UpUpDownDown. So I’ve been kind of just testing out this and that and seeing how I feel overall. Overall, it’s good to catch a breather, so I’m feeling good.”
