Kevin Owens Talks Him And Sami Zayn Getting Kicked Off A European Tour Together

Top WWE Star Kevin Owens recently appeared on After The Bell with Corey Graves to talk about a number of topics such as how he can’t really blame Sami Zayn for what Zayn did to him at Survivor Series due to everything he has done to The Honorary Uce over the last 20 years.

Kevin Owens said:

“I really can’t blame him for everything I’ve done to him over the last 20 years. And I’m talking before WWE as well. So yes, the sentiment I really had is just our careers really have been linked forever. And in WWE, even if you just look at the last eight years from the moment I started NXT to now, even when we’re not on the same show, our careers are somehow parallel, people still lump us together.”

Kevin Owens also talked about how he and Sami Zayn have been in this business for a long time and how their careers have been so linked that if Zayn got backstage heat for something he would get the same heat as well, even though he had nothing to do with it.

Kevin Owens said:

“I think we’ve just done this for a long time. We’ve really helped each other throughout our careers a lot. We’ve probably held each other back as well, just because of the constant pairing in people’s minds, even when we’re not together. I know for a fact I’ll tell you this back in 2017; in people’s minds, he and I were so just one. If he got heat backstage for something, I’d get the heat too, even if I have nothing to do with it.”

Kevin Owens also talked about how he and Sami Zayn once got kicked off a European tour together.

Kevin Owens said:

“We got kicked off a Europe tour once together, for something that I don’t think either of us had anything to really be blamed for, but I was barely involved in that. Like it’s just no, get those guys out of here. It wasn’t just get one of them, both of them. Because literally everything from that aspect, what I said Monday stands, I think it’s just time to be done.”

Kevin Owens then talked about how Sami Zayn is currently thriving in the WWE and how he does not know why it took the WWE Universe so long to take notice of Zayn and give him the credit he deserves.

Kevin Owens said:

“He’s thriving. I meant when I said on Monday too. People are seeing the Sami Zayn that I’ve known was there for 20 years. I don’t know why it took so long for people to really take notice and really give him the credit he deserves because he’s been incredible in WWE the whole time he’s been here, but the last few months have obviously opened a lot of people’s eyes to him, and it’s great, but I just don’t think it’s optimal for our careers to be parallel anymore.”
