WWE plans on turning Kevin Owens into a babyface similar to Steve Austin

Kevin Owens has had a great career in WWE so far and has been involved in some significant moments in WWE history. He was initially going to return after Wrestlemania 35 as a babyface, but he had to come back earlier.

Following Wrestlemania 35, he turned heel all of a sudden as he had to fill in the role of a major heel due to Daniel Bryan getting injured during Wrestlemania and the uncertainty regarding Bryan’s recovery from injury.

Kevin Owens finally turned babyface once again and now it seems everything is going according to plan. Dave Meltzer explained on Wrestling Observer Radio that WWE’s original plan was to make Kevin Owens into a babyface similar to ”Stone Cold” Steve Austin.

This certainly explains why Kevin Owens was given the Stunner as a finishing manoeuvre. It will be interesting to see how effectively WWE books Owens from now on.

    You can’t just “create” a Steve Austin or a Rock or a Taker or a Mankind or a Bret Hart. Those guys happened because they came from an era where they developed naturally. Especially in Austin and Rock’s case, the versions of themselves that people remember most, came from doing their own thing, and fans reacting to it, and then adjusting accordingly. There will never be “another” any of these guys.

    And Kevin Steen certainly ain’t it.

    Giving him the stunner to work with doesn’t make him “stone cold”. It makes him give homage. If you want him like Steve, create a finisher for him and have him ACT like Steve. Have Steve give him advise, but don’t take over his character in a copycat style. Keep it FRESH.

    how about doing something original for a change and stop living of the past? WWE should just stop ripping of from stone cold steve austin to try to get people over, it’s so patetic already, first that redhead steampunk girl that had no character, now this fat boring bum, none of them have there own persona, so so lame

    This story makes no sense. Firstly it says he was due to come back as a babyface “after” WM, but then says he had to come back earlier without actually explaining why he “had to”.
    Then it says he was turned heel because of Bryans injury at WM. While this part is true, it still does nothing to explain why he was supposedly brought back earlier than planned.

    As for the bit about him being given the stunner. He has been using that move since he returned in February and suddenly we are saying he has been given it because they want him to be a babyface like Austin? Firstly Owens was using it as a heel, so that contradicts this story for starters. Secondly, Austin was not a babyface. He was a tweener or a grey, depending on which terminology you prefer.
