• “Vince McMahon made it clear he wanted me to stay” – RAW Star
During a recent appearance on the Out Of Character podcast, RAW Superstar Kevin Owens talked about re-signing with WWE.
Below is what the former Universal Champion said:
“WWE didn’t really let me think about it much, they made it clear they wanted me to stay.
Vince McMahon, I dealt with Vince directly and he made it clear he wanted me to stay. We made an agreement right then and there.
I’m a big believer in…my career is going to go the way it goes and I’m going to do my best with it. I’m there now for a couple more years and I’m going to do my best to get opportunities and knock them out of the park and reap the benefits.
As I’ve documented before, there are ups and downs with this thing; to WWE, to wrestling, to the industry. I feel like I’m a great upswing right now and I’m enjoying what I do. I’m really enjoying myself a lot lately. Hopefully, it keeps going that way.
If it eventually stops feeling that way and I feel like I’m on the downswing, then it’s up to me to find a way back up. I’ve always taken that outlook. I’m having a great time these days.”
