Kevin Owens has been losing a lot lately. He lost out on the chance to fight for the new Universal Championship at SummerSlam. He lost to Sami Zayn at BattleGround. He lost in the Money in the Bank match in June. He was even picked way lower than he should have been during the draft, which really made him mad. Where is all this leading to ?
Kevin Owens is a main event talent, and he should be treated as such. Look back to his debut matches against John Cena last year and you’ll see a talent that is primed to be a perennial main event player. He has resided in the upper midcard, and even won a few midcard titles, in his year on the main roster, but he has largely lost the matches he has had against the resident main eventers.
He has been in a months long feud with Sami Zayn, pretty much since Sami has joined the main roster early this year. That feud is finally over, for now, and needs to be the launching point for Kevin Owens to join the main event scene. Yes, he lost to Sami Zayn, but he can use all these losses to fuel his rise in stardom. How are we going to accomplish that ?
Kevin Owens is at his best as a dominant force, ala Brock Lesnar. He should use all these losses recently as a fuel to turn him crazy and send him on a path of destruction, destroying everyone in his way. He showed great anger at being picked so low in the draft, and that is the exactly the Kevin Owens we need to see now.
It would be awesome to see him interfere in the Seth Rollins, Finn Balor match at SummerSlam and destroy them both. This would announce him as a force to be reckoned with, and let him join the championship scene that he belongs in. Kevin Owens will be a world champion before next WrestleMania, and you can count on that.
