Following Kevin Owens’ ascension to the top of the WWE mountain recently when he won the WWE Universal Championship, a couple of his known critics in Jim Cornette and Vince Russo emerged to offer their thoughts.
In short, Jim Cornette reiterated that his advice has got Owens this far and that his title win didn’t really matter to him, but he was happy for fans that were excited about the title victory. Vince Russo, who has has largely argued with KO fans online, previously claimed that if someone like Owens could be crowned Champion, wrestling was “over.”
During an appearance on Canada’s Main Event Radio, the Prizefighter addressed both his critics:
Jim Cornette and I have never really seen eye-to-eye. Ultimately, he knew that I could make it if I wanted to but he just didn’t think I had the right attitude. But that’s just because the way he and I saw things differently. He’s been saying that he thinks that I must have changed the way I see things because now I have success and it must be because I changed things. But it’s not; now I just work with people who I agree with more. The people who I work with now have the same vision that I do of what professional wrestling should be and what it is now. Jim and I just didn’t share that vision.
As far as Vince Russo is concerned, I don’t think he means a single word of what he says. I think he says all of it to get attention. I think he knows how good I am and that me being the champion is a great move, he’s just trying to rile people up.
