Kevin Owens Talks To Sporting News (June 2019)

Kevin Owens Talks About WWE’s Handling Of Wild Card Rule, Sami Zayn & More

Kevin Owens spoke with Brian Fritz of Sporting News for an interview where he spoke about the WWE Wild Card Rule and his longtime friendship with Sami Zayn. Featured below are some of the highlights.

On the WWE Wild Card Rule: “I guess the whole point of the wild-card rule is to add a sense of unpredictability to all the shows and I guess it definitely has achieved that because you never know who is going to show up where. The wild-card rule itself was very loosely defined when it was first announced and it’s been loosely enforced since it’s been announced (laughs). I guess it was supposed to be four guys at first and now, really, 10 guys show up one night, three guys show up the next night, whatever. But like I said, I think the whole point is to give a more unpredictable feel to the show itself and it’s definitely achieved that.”

On his longtime friendship and on-air partnership with Sami Zayn: “Actually, I think he and I both were kind of looking forward to being on our own a little and that’s not how it worked out. I’m always happy to team with him because of all the history we’ve had and it’s always great to be in there with somebody you know this well, but I do think that eventually it would be nice to have some time apart and just be away from each other for a little while just to do something different, if anything.”
