8. The Rock Praises Kevin Owens On Instagram
The Rock met WWE Universal Champion Kevin Owens on Raw this week and wrote the following about him:
Appreciate The Champ himself, Kevin Owens stopping by “The People’s Hood” to say hello. People’s Hood is the nickname for my dressing rooms. We had a good laugh about the story of when I was training for my WWE comeback and title run (2012). I was training with Curt Hawkins and Joe Hennig.
After our workout, me and Curt were chopping it up about great independent wrestlers. I said “Dude I just saw this guy last night on YouTube named Kill Steen or something like that. He’s amazing.” Curt said, “That’s my good friend Kevin Owens”. I said “Well tell your friend he’s bad ass and I hope WWE signs him.” Now 5 years later and relentless hard work, he’s WWE Universal Champion.
I like when good things happen to good hard working people. He’s an a$$hole though for growing a better beard than I can. #RAW #StaplesCenter #PeoplesHood #UniversalChamp #KevinOwens #FightingWithMyFamily
