Kevin Owens may find it challenging to be around Grayson Waller and Austin Theory without knocking them both out with one punch. Now Grayson Waller and Austin Theory are looking to repair their relationship with Kevin Owens.
Two weeks ago on SmackDown, Kevin Owens took over commentary duties in place of Corey Graves, who was on paternity leave. SmackDown General Manager Nick Aldis permitted Owens to be a commentator with the condition that he refrained from engaging in any physical confrontations. However, this agreement did not hold, as Waller and Theory deliberately provoked Owens, prompting him to attack both of them. Aldis took notice of these events and imposed suspension on The Prizefighter.
During a digital exclusive interview with Cathy Kelley, Grayson Waller and Austin Theory wore shirts featuring Kevin Owens’ initials and appeared remorseful for their conduct in the preceding week. They also commended Owens for his role as a leader in the locker room. Waller even extended an invitation to Kevin to be a special guest on his talk show, “The Grayson Waller Effect,” viewing it as a meaningful gesture to make amends with the former Universal Champion.
“I think we went too far. Kevin Owens is a leader in the locker room. He’s done so much in this business, we look up to him. Maybe we got off on the wrong foot and we made a mistake. I actually have an idea how we can make it up to him. I’m thinking next week, live on SmackDown, I host The Grayson Waller Effect with my very special guest Kevin Owens. What do you think? I think that’s a great idea. I think he would love that.”
We will have to see if Kevin Owens takes Grayson Waller up on his invitation. At this point, his WWE suspension may have a lot more to do with whether he shows up on the Grayson Waller Effect.
Kevin Owens was outstanding on commentary, and he had a lot of fun in the process. Then Grayson Waller and Austin Theory had to ruin the fun for everyone. At least they were able to have their own brand of fun.
Rumor has it that Kevin Owens and Logan Paul may battle in the future. Only time will tell where Grayson Waller and Austin Theory fit into the mix, but it stands to reason that they may have a lot in common with The Maverick.
