Re: Kevin Owens as the Anti Authority Figure Looks Good

Also this promo was more whiny/crybaby-ish than what a rebel character in the 90s would do.

Austin wouldn't be cutting a high pitched promo on how 'things aren't fair!'. He'd kick everybody's ass to a huge pop.

I guess this promo fits today's wrestler.

Re: Kevin Owens as the Anti Authority Figure Looks Good

Imagine rehashing Austin vs Vince in 2019 in the form of Owens vs Shane

Re: Kevin Owens as the Anti Authority Figure Looks Good

Who does that though?

"Hey Shane, I'm tired of you being positioned higher than me. It's not my fault I don't look larger than life and a star, so some 49 year old non-wrestler who throws punches like the Teletubbies would, is a bigger draw! It's just not fair! The fans want finger plugging butt flippers!"


Man, that was so bad ass...........

Re: Kevin Owens as the Anti Authority Figure Looks Good

Well, so far I love what I am seeing from Kevin Owens with this recent face run and it's only been 2 weeks. Should have stayed babyface this whole year and not a wasteful heel turn. But that is for another day debate.

When I seen him really bring it on the mic and his promo tonight against Shane McMahon reminded me in his ROH days when he was going against Jim Cornette plus the Authority. Hell, he even spat at Steve. Great to see him back to what he should be, against the Authority. He basically told Shane all of his flaws and why SD has been suffering as well as Raw with this stupid Wildcard shit which only favors Shane McMahon mostly. I really appreciate that.

Hopefully this will lead to a match at Summerslam and Kevin Owens finally gets to kick his ass without anyone being involved like it should have happen at Hell In A Cell 2017. Good work like always Kevin Owens.

Re: Kevin Owens as the Anti Authority Figure Looks Good

That was an awesome promo, first off. That was watered down Steen vibes but it was Steen, nonetheless. I wish WWE would have built up weeks in advance to lead up to this moment but that's expecting much from a lazy company.

The only nitpick I had about the segment was that Owens shouldn't have run. Fuck those security geeks. Stand your ground and fuck their shit up. Do you want a natural edge? That's how to properly do it. Give a sense of edge with unadulterated urgency without having to rely on crude or desperate tactics.

Now everyone should know better, here. This will ultimately amount to nothing. Many stars (sans Punk I guess) in the modern era have cut these same promos in WWE since the Pipebomb and it didn't amount to anything. I don't suspect this will be anything different. They'll have to prove it and I doubt they will. However, this was a great promo from Owens. More of this, please.

Worked "shoots" got tired long back. They've done it to death, and throwing out names for cheap pops and heat is weak.
It wasn't a worked shoot though. He shat on the authority heel, pretty kayfabe thing to do.

Bruh I'm teasing. Worked shoots aren't going to disappear. Cause it's an easy sell for the people with inside knowledge.

The Shawn vs Cody feud is basically going be very worked shoot. I'm almost 90 percent sure the phrase good hand will be used,

Kayfabe is damn near impossible in 2019 cause every company from WWE to impact to roh either blur the line or simply ignore it

Mentioning names of underutilized talent and then getting his mic cut.

Remind you of someone

This is something I've said for a while, they've done it too much and it doesn't feel real or as passionate like it did with Punk. So it comes off really poor and corny because the company is "shooting" on itself to get fans to care.

I would agree if he did not have the line about being a good company man. When has Kevin Owens in kayfabe been a good company man? He headbutted Vince ffs. I liked the promo but it was worked shoot. Do it without the company man line and it would be better



IT FUCKING HAPPENED
