Former WWE Universal Champion Kevin Owens recently spoke to Alex McCarthy of TalkSport, and explained why he wants to win the title once again. Owens also revealed the people who were “instrumental” in helping him realize he didn’t enjoy his first reign as much as he “should have”. Check out his comments below!
Explains why he didn’t enjoy his first Universal Championship reign enough:
“What I mean the most when I talk about I’d love to have another Universal title run to make things right is for myself. My mindset has changed a lot since I was champion and back then I didn’t take the time to enjoy any of it... I was just too focused on trying to make it good, make it better, make it as good as it can be and I really, really didn’t enjoy it the way I should have.”
Credits the people who helped him realize he needs to enjoy things more:
“My wife was instrumental in making me realise that. My parents as well, even guys like Shawn Michaels, Triple H and even Vince McMahon himself, they’ve all told me that it seemed like I forgot to enjoy this part of things and if you’re not going to enjoy being the champion, then what are you going to enjoy in this industry? I’d love to be able to get back there just so I can enjoy it properly, but we’ll see. All I can do is do my best to stay in that story and hopefully I get to take it from Roman or somebody else in the future.”
