Kevin Owens is an outspoken, Quebec-born brawler who bolts around the ring with equal parts grace and bad intentions.
Lauded by The Rock and possessing what WWE Hall of Famer “Stone Cold” Steve Austin described as a “hell of an arsenal,” Owens has earned many accolades in North America and abroad.
During his 14 years as a globetrotting independent grappler, Owens has crossed paths and locked horns with men who went on to become WWE Superstars, including Daniel Bryan, Seth Rollins, Adrian Neville and Sami Zayn. After achieving success around the globe and being recognized as one of the world’s top in-ring competitors, Owens joined his fellow warriors in 2014 when he made his debut at NXT TakeOver: R Evolution, capturing the NXT Championship only a few months later by annihilating his oldest friend, Sami Zayn.
Owens’ ruthlessness followed him to the main roster, where he defeated John Cena in his first match and made it a point to target the biggest, baddest boys in the yard. Cesaro, Ryback and Mark Henry have all fallen to the brawler’s fists. After a bitter rivalry with Sami Zayn, Owens found an unlikely ally in Chris Jericho, and the two Canadians nicknamed their new alliance Jeri-KO. The partnership paid dividends quickly. With Jericho watching his back, Owens earned a spot in a Fatal 4-Way Match to determine the WWE Universal Champion, and during the bout, Triple H shockingly returned to help Owens capture the title.
Friends, foes and unlucky wanderers beware: Kevin Owens is coming for a fight.
