Kevin Owens: Bio
Kevin Owens is an outspoken, Quebec-born brawler who bolts around the ring with equal parts grace and bad intentions.
Lauded by The Rock and possessing what WWE Hall of Famer “Stone Cold” Steve Austin described as a “hell of an arsenal,” Owens earned many accolades in North America and abroad.
During his 14 years as a globetrotting independent grappler, Owens crossed paths and locked horns with men who went on to become WWE Superstars, including Daniel Bryan, Seth Rollins and, perhaps most famously, Sami Zayn. After achieving success as one of the world’s top in-ring competitors, Owens made his debut at NXT TakeOver: R Evolution, and captured the NXT Championship only a few months later by annihilating Zayn, his oldest friend.
Owens’ mix of ruthlessness, determination and guts followed him to the main roster, where he defeated John Cena in his first match and made it a point to target the biggest, baddest boys in the yard. Since then, he’s taken on everyone from Daniel Bryan to Roman Reigns to Shane McMahon to Seth Rollins to AJ Styles, amassing the Universal, United States Championship and Intercontinental Championship along the way.
In addition to his in-ring prowess, KO has proven himself a master of the mic, whether he’s calling out a Superstar to settle a dispute or regularly hosting his own unpredictable talk show, "The Kevin Owens Show."
Above all, Kevin Owens is a fearless competitor with an extraordinary singular belief in himself and his ability. He stands time and time again as a Superstar who will stop at nothing to compete in the best match of the night, whether that mean engaging in Tables, Ladders and Chairs slugfests, awe-inspiring leaps from the top of the WrestleMania sign or taking on multiple Superstars against the odds.
Now that he's back on SmackDown as a result of the 2020 WWE Draft, KO will be looking to dole out Stunners and fight his way to the top of the blue brand, whatever the cost.
