The prizefighter didn’t like the prize. Kevin Owens was recently a guest on the After The Bell podcast with Corey Graves, revealing that he was not a fan of his 2016 Universal Championship Run.
Below is a highlight from the interview:
“I used always to want more and more and more. What’s next? What’s next? What’s next? There are so many moments over the past eight years that I didn’t properly enjoy because I was always worried about what was the next thing. When I was Universal Champion, I had this incredible run with Chris Jericho and so many great moments, so many fun moments that people still talk about today. I’m ashamed to say that I really did not enjoy that as much as I should have.”
Owens won the title after Finn Balor was forced to vacate the championship due to injury shortly after becoming the first-ever champion.

This is somewhat surprising, and some thing I haven’t thought about in a number of years. I figured that any time a superstar reaches the top of the mountain, it is a culmination of all of the work that they have put in throughout their career. I guess you never know when something isn’t clicking with someone when they are on top!
