Kevin Owens’ push has seemingly come out of nowhere. With regards to the push, Sportskeeda’s Tom Colohue had some things to reveal.
Apparently one of the biggest fans of Owens backstage was none other than Vince McMahon.
“The biggest fan of Kevin Owens in the company is Vince McMahon. He is absolutely Owens’ biggest fan. He would not be pushing him in this Stone Cold position if he was not behind him.”Tom Colohue
He also gave some reasons as to why Kevin Owens was turned heel in the first place.
“The real misnomer here is not the face turn, but the heel turn. The heel turn was not supposed to be happening. Kevin Owens was very unfortunate in that he was the biggest victim of Kofi Kingston. Owens was supposed to be the one getting that momentum, going into Wrestlemania, and taking the title from Daniel Bryan. He was supposed to be a face when he came back, he was supposed to be a face Champion, he was supposed to be facing Randy Orton. He hasn’t had that. Then as a result of an injury to Daniel Bryan, he had to be turned heel in order to feud with Kofi.”Tom Colohue
He finally went on to talk about why Kevin Owens was now on the receiving end of a massive push like he was at the moment, saying that it was the Creative Team’s way of making up for things that went wrong.
“The Creative Team are really righting what is considered to be a wrong — that he should have never been a heel, and the fans never got behind the heel turn anyway.”Tom Colohue
