Re: Kevin Owens as the Anti Authority Figure Looks Good

It was a decent segment but I wish Owen's wasn't using the stunner as it makes him feel like an Austin knock off in such a similar anti authority storyline but the whole authority figure that wwe keep persisting with needs to go away for sometime rather than making it such a prominent storyline around the product year after year, it's done to death now.

Re: Kevin Owens as the Anti Authority Figure Looks Good

Guessing this is what Owens character was really supposed to be when they brought him back, but then Kofi's rise had them take a couple month detour with him.

Owens will work as a face, this has been his arch just about everywhere he has ever worked. Starts out as a heel eventually his talent gets him over as a face. Just has to avoid the normal "Stripping of everything that got you cheered" they normally do when the "E" flips a cheered heel face.

If you want to use your logic, it would also be aimed at Jericho, and didn't like Larry Zybsco used that too?


It was a shot at Shane yes but left vague purposely cmon man lol I wouldn’t say it’s a shot but it was a purposeful tweet

It's to a point where the shows are so bad that anything that is remotely serious within a promo is considered groundbreaking lol but hey I'm all for promos like KOs.

Owens is so good on the mic he can pretty much look good face or heel.

I would be fairly sure he is using it with Austin blessing. Which is fine by me. As long the move isnt getting kicked out of it keeps austin in a good light. It's when folk start using finishers and folk kick out of them left right and centre it sucks. DDT is a prime example.

Re: Kevin Owens as the Anti Authority Figure Looks Good

I've seen the talk of this being a shoot or not being a shoot.

To me it doesn't matter. Because while KO mentioning guys like Buddy Murphy, Asuka, Apollo, etc. may and probably means nothing for them, the idea that KO is now fighting for this idea give him power and gives people a reason to get behind him. And it works because Owens, while having a lot of success in his career, has been under utilized as of late and I believe that he believes the words coming out of his mouth.

And there are few guys who can verbalize that better than he can.

I imagine he'll work with Shane in some capacity at Summerslam. And it's in Canada so he'll be treated like a hero. Time will tell if its a big win for him or another notch in the Super Shane belt.

Re: Kevin Owens as the Anti Authority Figure Looks Good

Anything that gets KO more TV and mic time is great in my book. The guy is talented in everything he does.

Re: Kevin Owens as the Anti Authority Figure Looks Good

In an era where it is SO hard to make a compelling baby face, and WWE finally has lucked into one with Owens, they should push the holy hell out of him.

However, you know it's absolutely IMPOSSIBLE this will amount into anything, if WWE couldn't figure it out with Daniel Bryan returning in 2018, it's fucking hopeless.

Kofi's run has been fine, but god damn he is such a fucking bland character, many of us were calling it before Kofi won the title, it would make a good moment, but there's no longevity in it. If Kofi is actually injured, they should get the title to Brock on Sunday, write Kofi out for a while, and do Brock/Owens at Summerslam.
