• Kevin Owens Reveals An Interesting Reason Why He Won’t Be Disappointed If He Doesn’t Win The Intercontinental Title Tonight
On tonight’s post-WrestleMania Backlash edition of SmackDown, Apollo Crews will defend the Intercontinental Championship against Big E, Sami Zayn & Kevin Owens in a Fatal-4-Way match.
During his appearance on this week’s WWE The Bump, Owens explained why he won’t be disappointed if he doesn’t win the Intercontinental Title tonight.
Here’s what KO said:
“Well…it’s actually a bit conflicted, because I would love to be Intercontinental Champion again. However, and this is gonna sound bad, but, if I don’t win the title, I won’t be that heartbroken, because there is a good reason.
As everybody knows Owen Hart had a very positive influence on my career, I was a big fan of his. I named my son after him. My wrestling name ‘Kevin Owens’ is a tribute to my son and Owen Hart.
What some fans have pointed out to me in the past is that me and Owen Hart share a birthday, but also what’s cool is we were both Intercontinental Champions twice, and if you add the total amount of days from both those reigns we have the exact same amount of days as Intercontinental Champion as well.
So I almost don’t want to break that streak.”
