Kevin Owens On Styles’ Feud & Dream WrestleMania Match
During an interview to promote Saturday’s WWE Live Event from Wildwood, New Jersey, Kevin Owens spoke about his feud against United States Champion AJ Styles and his dream WrestleMania opponent. The interview for At The Shore was mostly conducted with Owens remaining in character. He said Styles is a “terrible example” for America’s youth.
Does Owens enjoy working with Styles? He replied:
“Yeah, I don’t enjoy it at all actually. I’d rather never having to work with him again. He has my title, and I have to go after and it looks like we’re nowhere near done. Unfortunately, I have to step in the ring with him several more times. It’s part of what we do.”
As Top Rope Press reported, Owens lost the United States Championship to Styles during a WWE Live Event from Madison Square Garden on July 7. Styles’ win marked his first United States Championship reign in the WWE.
In regards to WrestleMania, Owens’ dream opponent is, perhaps unsurprisingly, Sami Zayn.
“I feel like Sami Zayn. It would be such a great chapter to add to our story. We’ve been at each other’s throats and by each other’s sides simultaneously the last 15 years. It would be great to do something with him.”
Zayn isn’t the only dream opponent. Owens also named Finn Bálor, who he referred to as his best friend. Owens explained he and Bálor entered the WWE at the exact same time and go to know each other better while in developmental. Bálor and Owens had several matches against each other in NXT, including Bálor capturing the NXT Championship in Japan and a Ladder Match at NXT TakeOver: Brooklyn in 2015.
El Patron Steps Down?
Combate Americas CEO Campbell McLaren revealed Alberto El Patron, real name Jose Alberto Rodriguez, might step down from his duties as president of the organization. Speaking to MMAUNO.com, McLaren said El Patron is making his own decision on resigning from the role.
“Alberto is a really good friend of mine and his girlfriend Saraya who is ‘Paige’ I’m sure you know, they become very close friends of mine and when they are in New York they come out to dinner with my wife and I. They are good pals, but what Alberto is telling me, is that his first love is wrestling. You know, his father was ‘Dos Caras’ a very famous wrestler and Saraya’s family is third generation English wrestlers, you know about her right? And so what Alberto has said to me, and we haven’t unveiled this yet, but we can talk about it, he’s probably stepping back his official roles from Combate and he’s going to focus on more on wrestling for the next year or two.”
McLaren added that El Patron’s request to step down was likely for him to focus on another wrestling run. According to the Combate Americas CEO, juggling the professional wrestling and president duties would’ve been challenging for El Patron.
El Patron was announced as Combate Americas’ president in October 2016.
