• Kevin Owens Reveals Why He Started Using The Stunner

During a recent interview with Sports Illustrated, former Universal Champion Kevin Owens explained why he started using the Stunner as his finishing move instead of the Pop-Up Powerbomb.

Below is what Owens said:

“I felt like everybody was doing powerbombs left and right, and I wanted to try something else. And one day it occurred to me that no one does the stunner as a finishing move, but to me, it’s always been the best move.

So I just went to Steve one day when he was here and I asked him, and he said, ‘I can’t believe nobody’s asked me this before, but of course you can use it. Do whatever you want with it.’

I did that out of respect for the people who’ve come before me. I would never want to do that without his approval. He gave me the approval and it’s working for me, so I have no intention of stopping and no intention of renaming it, either. It’s the stunner and it always will be the stunner.”
