Kevin Owens on why he was Promoted to the Main Roster Quicker than Others

In an interview with Sam Roberts before the WWE SummerSlam pay-per-view, WWE Universal Champion Kevin Owens was asked why he was promoted from NXT to the main roster quicker than others. His response? Typical Kevin Owens:

“Oh yeah, I’m really good.”

 After some applause:

“Alright, I know it seems like I was joking but that literally is the reason.”

He also expanded a little further:

“By the time I showed up on Raw that Monday to confront (John) Cena I had already been told ‘you’re on the main roster permanently.’ I don’t know who saw what. Obviously, I know Triple H is the reason I’m here. He took the chance on me originally and obviously he had a big part to play in it. But I don’t know who saw what and made them decide that it was time for me to come up when the usual way to go about things back then to get called up from NXT… it could take years. I also feel like, honestly, I was probably at the right place at the right time because at that point John Cena needed somebody to work with that people would be excited to see him work with and I think I was the guy.”
