- Kevin Owens opened up in a new interview by Slam! Wrestling, where he credited Triple H for taking a chance on him. Here’s an excerpt: “Triple H is the reason I'm here,” Owens said of the wrestling legend-turned executive. “He's the one who took a chance on me because a lot has been said about how I look and how I don't have the typical WWE superstar look, even though I feel like over the past three or four years that whole stereotype has been destroyed. Still, it was something that people would always point to as to why they thought I wouldn't make it in the WWE even if I got hired. Well, not only did I get hired, but last Monday, I won the Universal title and Triple H literally handed it to me. People can say what they want about that, but to me, it was a pretty special moment.”Click here to read the interview in its entirety.
