Kevin Owens is undoubtedly one of the top Superstars in WWE and has had a memorable career in WWE, spanning multiple title wins, including the Intercontinental Championship.
While speaking on WWE’s The Bump, Kevin Owens talked about his upcoming Fatal Four Way Intercontinental Championship match on Friday Night Smackdown.
Kevin Owens revealed that he wouldn’t be totally heartbroken if Owens doesn’t win the title. Owens elaborated that he and Owen Hart both won the title twice and have held it for the same number of days and doesn’t want to break that record.
“Well, it’s a bit conflicted. I would love to be Intercontinental Champion again; however, I know this is going to sound bad, but if I don’t win the title, I won’t be that heartbroken. There’s a good reason. As everybody knows, Owen Hart had a very positive influence on my career. What fans have pointed out to me in the past is that me and Owen Hart share a birthday, but also, we were both Intercontential Champions twice. If you add the total amount of days from our reigns, we both have the exact number of days as Intercontinental Champions.”
“I almost don’t want to break that streak, but I will allow it ’cause if I were to win it now, it’s a brand new title. When I was the [former] Intercontential Champion, it was the same title Owen Hart held – the actual design of the title. So, if it comes down on Friday, sure, I’ll win the Intercontinental title. Fine. Only because they’re twisting my arm.”
The match on Friday Night Smackdown will see Apollo Crews defend his Intercontinental Championship against Big E, Kevin Owens and Sami Zayn. We will have to see who will come out on top in the match.
