Kevin Owens recently took part in a conference call, discussing the current WWE product and more. Here are the highlights, courtesy of The National in Abu Dhabi…
On why the brand split is a good thing: “I wrestled Dean Ambrose and Dolph Ziggler (both of who are now on SmackDown), just to name those two guys, 20 times over the past few months. I always enjoy getting in the ring with both those guys and we always put on really good matches but it is good to have new challenges, new opponents and fresh matches. I think as a fan, and that is one thing I would say I still am because I watch every Raw and everything else still, that makes me excited because I am going to see different guys on different shows and different matches that I haven’t seen before or haven’t necessarily seen in a long time.
On whether his feud with Sami Zayn will continue: “I’m sure that battle wasn’t our last match in the grand scheme of things but it may have been our last one for a little while but I am sure we will share the same ring at some point.”
On working with Mick Foley: “I don’t know if I am going to able to take much from him in terms of advice or anything like that but I am looking forward to our verbal jousts as unfortunately we will never be able to get in the ring together because I don’t think he’d be able to walk out. I guess in a way it is a challenge so if Mick hears this and he is up for it and up to proving me wrong I am all for it.”
On being ready to main event: “I am definitely ready for a main event. Actually I am very conscious of the fact I am yet to main event a pay-per-view and I am not going to lie when I say that bothers me and I am going to do everything I can to make sure that happens this year.”
