Kevin Owens as the Anti Authority Figure Looks Good





In the span of a week Kevin Owens went from heel to snarky and anti authority babyface.

He goes from roasting to Dolph Ziggler to roasting Shane McMahon, yelling into the camera about how no one wants to see Shane McMahon on TV so much. About how he hoards TV time over guys like Buddy, Apollo, Asuka, Kairi, etc.

And the audience cheered because it's the truth. And not only that, he stuns Shane McMahon to end the show and escaping into the crowd. Again, in the span of the week he turns himself into a hot commodity.

Now to come back to earth, we saw Miz go up against Shane. How's Miz doing right now. And this doesn't mean anything will change. But for Kevin Owens himself, he's elevated himself instantly in 1 week.

Re: Kevin Owens as the Anti Authority Figure Looks Good

Another case of WWE burying their own product and I GARUNTEE you nothing will change.

Maybe KO gets a win over Shane at Summerslam, maybe, but the second KO has to wrestle someone like Drew, Vince is gonna look at them both, and put Drew over for the basis of "DA LOOK".

Kevin Owens should be a top baby face, and it's easy to see that if booked properly he can be, the crowd was going nuts for him.

But I have no faith in this company after what has happened to Seth Rollins.

Re: Kevin Owens as the Anti Authority Figure Looks Good

He's amazing.

It's funny that is was during his feud with KO when Shane became the SmackDown main focus; he was the last SD member to be eliminated in the 2017 Survivor Series match (a performance that he repeated the year after) and ultimately won his feud against KO at WrestleMania. Many people were saying that Shane's actions were heelish and I thought so too, so now KO, who was officially the bad dude back then, had the balls to go against Shane and become a hero. This can be a great storyline and I really hope KO will be the one to put Shane in his place.

Oh, and SZ allying himself with Shane would be exciting. SZ as the one who blames the fans and KO as the one who blames Shane.

Re: Kevin Owens as the Anti Authority Figure Looks Good

Replace Shane with Cena and you've seen 15,000 incarnations of this same exact angle played out. It never lasts long. Cena despite being buried in worked shoots and the crowd going nuts for it because it was the the truth. Never changed.

And that anti-hero usually dropped back to midcard floundering after eating the pin at a PPV.

Promo of the year so far. KO took his game to another level tonight. Hope he’s rewarded.

Reminded me of his ROH days. Talk as much as you want about his looks but even when they totally burried him he still deliver. He needs to DESTROY Shane.

Re: Kevin Owens as the Anti Authority Figure Looks Good

I think that suits him at this point, what's sad about it is I have lack of faith that they will have some kind of continuity with this and KO might be on the losing end. They really made Shane one of the biggest heels right now. Anyway, I am totally fine with this, he doesn't have to be someone who panders to the fans.


...Beware of he who would deny you access to information, for in his heart he dreams himself your master.

I don't like him using the stunner. Why can't he try something more original?
