Kevin Owens has his hands full right now. Along with hosting The KO Show almost every week, he is currently feuding with two Superstars – Aleister Black and Bray Wyatt’s The Fiend.
In an interview with Bleacher Report published ahead of WWE Draft on Friday Night SmackDown, Owens discussed his two ongoing rivalries, among other things.
Kevin Owens on his feud with The Fiend
Owens was already feuding with Aleister Black before he made an enemy out of Bray Wyatt’s The Fiend. Apparently to understand Black’s sudden heel turn, Owens took his talk show to SmackDown and sat down with a special guest.
His special guest on the Blue brand was Alexa Bliss, who also has been acting strangely ever since her encounter with The Fiend.

Alexa Bliss admitted to have been changed and cleansed by “him”. But questioning her actions did not end well for Owens. The segment ended with The Fiend appearing in the ring and holding Owens down with the mandible claw.
Owens admitted that it was great to share the ring with someone like The Fiend. But it was not something he was too eager about.
“It’s always cool to get in the ring with someone different, but I can’t say wrestling The Fiend was on my list of things I was looking forward to, to be honest, because you know how everyone else has ended up against The Fiend.”
Owens went up against The Fiend on SmackDown and was defeated again by the mandible claw. The end of the segment saw The Fiend with Alexa Bliss as the arena turned bright red.
On his rivalry with Aleister Black
Aleister Black unexpectedly attacked Owens on RAW after appearing on his talk show. His reason behind the assault was that Owens did not help him when he sustained a storyline eye injury in the hands of Seth Rollins.
Owens believes Black should have had a better explanation for his sudden attack. But they are way beyond the point of any explanations at the moment.
“I feel like Aleister could have explained his reasoning a little bit better and that would’ve helped the story and help me understand why all of it’s happening. It is what it is right now. We’re kind of past the point of explaining [to] each other. He attacked me, I fought him back. I’m sure it’s building to one big match where we can settle it once and for all, but I don’t really know where any of it is going at this point.”
