• “At this point I’m just hoping to be on WrestleMania” – Former Universal Champion
Former WWE Universal Champion Kevin Owens was interviewed on this week’s episode of WWE’s The Bump, where he revealed that he wants to work a program with WWE Hall Of Famer Edge some day.
Keep in mind that both are Canadians, though from different parts of the country, as Kevin is from Marieville, Quebec, while Edge hails from Orangeville, Ontario.
Here’s what Owens had to say about wanting to wrestle The Rated-R Superstar:
“When Edge announced his retirement way too early, that was really hard for everyone, it felt like the possibility of something great was robbed from us. I would tell you 99% of young Canadian wrestlers coming up at the time were hoping to wrestle Edge in their career, including me.
So then when he came back at the Royal Rumble, I was so excited to get to see his entrance. That energy and the fans’ reaction when he realized he was getting that whole thing back, it was so great. And then the possibilities were back that, ‘oh, maybe we’ll get to do this now.’
Then Randy attacked him, Edge got injured and this whole rollercoaster of a year happened to him. I have to say, I wondered if he’d even come back from this injury. But I’m glad to see he did, and the possibility of a match with Edge is something really appealing. And I really hope it happens. I’d love to wrestle him.”
Owens also noted that his goal for WrestleMania 37 is just to get a spot on the match-card:
“At this point we’re, like, 5 weeks away and I don’t have a match yet. It’s happened to me before. WrestleMania 35 to be precise, where I was available and wasn’t on WrestleMania. At the time that really killed me. I was really unhappy about that. But I lived through it and realized it’s not okay, you obviously want to be part of WrestleMania. But the world doesn’t end because you’re not on WrestleMania.
So I set my goal, as far as WrestleMania in 5 weeks goes, to be on it at this point. Forget the pirate ship. If I’m there and there’s someone to dive on and I’m near the ship, great. But at this point I’m just hoping to be on WrestleMania. That’s my goal.”
At WrestleMania 36 last year, Kevin Owens defeated Seth Rollins on Night 1.
