Kevin Owens is regarded as one of the top WWtE Superstars and there is a good reason for that. Owens is currently on a career resurgence after becoming one-half of the Undisputed WWE Tag Team Champions. He has wrestled in many major events, but this year’s Elimination Chamber event wasn’t one of them.

This year’s Elimination Chamber Premium Live Event marked the company’s first premium live event in Montreal since 2009. The show was headlined by Sami Zayn squaring off against Roman Reigns in the main event.

Sami Zayn ended up losing the match and Kevin Owens came out to save Zayn from a beatdown at the hands of Roman Reigns and Jimmy Uso. Regardless, it was a wonderful moment.

While speaking to the Toronto Sun, Kevin Owens talked about WWE Elimination Chamber 2023. The Prizefighter admitted it hurt him to be excluded from the event.


“I wasn’t on that show and that hurt, I’ve got to be honest with you … a sold-out pay-per-view in my hometown.

“To be quite honest, I think I was pretty instrumental in bringing it there because right after we did Raw and Smackdown (in Montreal), I kept telling them we need a pay-per-view there, we need a pay-per-view there and they finally do it and I’m not even on the show. That sucked.

“I’m not going to mince my words, that sucked and I was upset about it. But what can you do? I did get to show up in the end there a little bit, but by that point, it was nothing, it was meaningless.

“But to see Sami get that moment, to see Sami get that reaction, to see Sami get something he deserved for so long, that really made that a lot easier to swallow. And it’s all a credit to him.”

The Undisputed WWE Tag Team Championships won’t be defended at SummerSlam as Kevin Owens is out of action with a broken rib. We’ll have to wait and see when he will be medically cleared for an in-ring return.
