Kevin Owens is certainly one of the mainstays of WWE television ever since his debut in NXT back in 2014. He also made a name for himself in the independent circuit before making his way to WWE. It seems Ric Flair has a high opinion of Kevin Owens.
After a lot of speculation of whether Kevin Owens would stay with WWE or not, it was revealed that Owens signed another contract with WWE, which was said to be a multi-year deal.
While speaking on his Wooooo Nation Uncensored podcast, Ric Flair talked about Kevin Owens’ run in WWE so far. Ric Flair stated that Kevin Owens has unlimited talent.
“I think the world of Kevin Owens. He’s a respectful, nice guy. He has unlimited talent. He has a hell of an interview. Before he ever used the stunner, he called Steve [Austin] and asked him. That’s respect. I did a segment with him on a Thanksgiving Starrcade show.
It was the Kevin Owens’ KO show, and he asked me, ‘What do you want to talk about?’ I said, ‘Hey, you’re the boss.’ He said, ‘You’re Ric Flair.’ I said, ‘That doesn’t mean anything to me right now. We’ll talk about whatever you want to talk about.’ He’s a very respectful kid with a ton of talent. He takes these huge bumps and all that. I’m happy for him and I wish him nothing but success. He’s a great guy.”
Kevin Owens is booked for a four-way WWE Championship match at the Day 1 PPV on January 1, 2022. He will take on WWE Champion Big E, Seth Rollins, and Bobby Lashley. We will have to wait and see who will win the match.
