Kevin Owens On Changing Body Types In Wrestling

Kevin Owens

Kevin Owens has discussed how the wrestling business has changed in regard to body types and says that for him story and connection are far more important.

Kevin Owens was part of the story that is the talk of the entire wrestling business after suffering defeat at the hands of Roman Reigns at the 2023 Royal Rumble. After the match Reigns directed a vicious beating of Owens at the hands of The Bloodline.

Sami Zayn was ordered to finish Owens off with a steel chair but instead cracked the weapon over the back of his Tribal Chief to the roar of the San Antonio crowd. Zayn then suffered a beating at the hands of Jimmy Uso and Solo Sikoa while Jey Uso walked away from the family and has since indicated he could well be gone from The Bloodline.

Speaking to MySanAntonio, Kevin Owens was asked about how body types in wrestling have changed over the decades and he says he thinks the industry moved away from the bodybuilder type a long time ago:

“I think wrestling changed a long time ago. The WWE itself changed a long time ago. And I think at this point, it’s really all about how good you are and how much you can have people care more than how you look. And to me, I’ve watched wrestling since I was 11 years old, and I really never cared how the wrestlers look.”

“I just connected with some people over others. And to me, if anything, I connected with the guys who didn’t look like all the other ones. You know what I mean? … If you can go in the ring and you can tell good stories and make people care, that’s what truly matters, and that’s what always should matter in my opinion. So, it’s good we are able to do that, and people are receptive.”

Footage from after the Royal Rumble event went off the air has emerged online showing what happened with Kevin Owens and Sami Zayn after their vicious beatings.
