Kevin Owens is smack-dab in the middle of a main-event feud with Shane McMahon, but Shane isn’t the only member of the McMahon family that Owens has been physical with. Before Shane jumped off the top of the cell through a table at Sunday’s Hell in a Cell pay-per-view, the most memorable moment of the feud was Owens head-butting WWE chairman Vince McMahon.
Whenever a superstar is in the ring with “the boss,” it’s akin to strapping a jetpack on the back of the worker and the feud. Fans always seem to take a little more interest when the McMahons are involved. Owens noticed that as well.
“I transitioned into the thing with Shane, I did feel like, ‘oh man, working with Shane is a big deal’. And Vince, throwing himself into the mix, I knew – that’s as big as it gets,” Owens said on the latest E&C Pod of Awesomeness. “Not that many people get to do that with Vince, especially nowadays.
“If you look in the last 5-6 years there hasn’t been that many people who got to, you know, physically assault (Vince McMahon) in the way that I did. So obviously I knew that was a big deal and I did think maybe this is what I’ve been waiting for and so far it feels like that was it. I feel like things have been taken to a new level for me since that happened and I’m gonna try to run with it as good as I can.”
The storyline took a nice twist with the addition of the now-heel Sami Zayn. We’ll see what’s next this Tuesday on SmackDown Live.
