Kevin Owens has one of the fastest selling WWE DVDs/Blu Rays in quite some time and for good reason.
Fight Owens Fight – The Kevin Owens Story was released on July 4, 2017. In what was a little surprise, both the Blu Ray and DVD editions on Amazon were backordered immediately. Best Buy in Sioux Falls had two left and you bet that I picked one up. I’m sure WWE will be pushing more of them out across the country soon.
For me, this was an immediate purchase. Kevin Owens [Steen] has been one of my favorite wrestlers for about a decade. His work on the independents speaks for itself and the man always deserved to get to the WWE.
But it wasn’t just that simple.
The 50-minute documentary takes a look at his road to the WWE. Everything is covered from his training with Jacques Rougeau in Montreal, his opportunity to get exposure in the U.S. through CZW, and his run with Ring of Honor. His road was never one with the smoothest of paths, and his fellow friends and wrestlers never believed that he would make it to WWE.
His relationship with Sami Zayn (who does admit that he was El Generico…so I guess we can put the whole kayfabe helping orphans in Mexico story behind us) is also detailed out. They talk a bit about the development of the year-long program in ROH between 2009-2010 (seriously if you haven’t seen it you need to). The documentary also includes a story in which Zayn signed his WWE contract in front of Owens. For Zayn, it was a show of accomplishment that they both could celebrate. For Owens, it was the opposite that he wasn’t what the WWE was looking for.
He might have lacked the certain “build” that the WWE looks for, but nobody was ever able to deny his in-ring ability and his ability to cut promos. He is a natural when it comes to connecting with a crowd and that has pushed him to where he is today!
The DVD is a MUST for any Kevin Owens/ Steen fan from WWE to ROH!!!
Here are some of the best matches in the history of Kevin Owens / Steen :
RAW and SmackdownLive is going to be interesting with the WWE Draft. Things I didn’t like were that they broke up The Wyatt Family as they were getting into a good feud with The New Day . Also didn’t like that the WWE world champion Dean Ambrose got drafted to SmackdownLIve…Time will tell if there will be trades or whatnot. Here are some of the highlights of the WWE Draft!
We are back with our WWE RAW recap here on Superfanworld.com . Raw was a entertaining show , as it was the last WWE RAW before the Draft tonight on Smackdown Live . Stephanie and Shane Mcmahon named their gm’s of Smackdown and RAW. For Raw the GM will be the legend Mick Foley and for Smackdown it will be Daniel Bryan. I really like the picks as this will bring some good times and some good matches for both shows. I have a feeling that Vince will come out soon and announce that he likes the GM’s but he wants to change them to the opposite shows, this might happen tonight during the draft.
The 12 man tag team match was a fun match with the Wyatts and The Club Vs. The New Day , Cena and Enzo and Cass. This was a good buildup for Battleground this Sunday on the WWE Network.
Another good match was Cesaro and Sami Zayn Vs. Kevin Owens and Chris Jericho. Always good to see Sami Zayn get the win over Chris Jericho. Hopefully Sami wins on Sunday at Battleground against Kevin Owens.
Dean Ambrose Vs. Seth Rollins this match was a PPV quality match on Raw. Great buildup for Battleground and I liked that Raw ended with a cliffhanger that was continued on The WWE Network. Dean and Seth hopefully will have many more battles that we will all enjoy.
So that is our WWE RAW recap, We will be back tomorrow for our WWE Draft Smackdown Live recap. See you in the ring!!
Raw was uneven last night, it felt like two shows in one. The matches were just FEH last night, with not much surprises. The best of the night in my opinion was The Rollins Report, at least it was entertaining with Seth Rollins fake interview with Roman Reigns as they lead into WWE Backlash. The worst of the night had to be The New Day battling The Wyatt Family at The Wyatt Family compound. It was cheaply and poorly done, and did nothing to help both teams. It was WWE’s version of the whole Hardy Boyz “Brother Nero” skit. New Day and The Wyatt Family deserved better. Next week its Seth Rollins vs. Dean Ambrose for the WWE title, should be interesting. And next week is the last RAW before the big Draft on Smackdown…….See you all next week in the ring!
The WWE PPV is tonight on May 1st. 2016 ….Here are my preview of the WWE PPV Payback :
Cesaro Vs. The Miz : I would like to see Cesaro win but I like this feud and I think the WWE will keep this feud going until probably Summerslam. The winner will be Cesaro by the DQ.
Zayn Vs. Owens : I think this will be a long time feud, as we all know that Zayn/Owens can go the distance. I want to see more matches between these two. This match will be a DQ.
Charlotte Vs. Natalya : Bret Hart will be in the corner of Natalya and of course Ric Flair will be in the corner of the ladies champion Charlotte. I think Charlotte will keep the championship, Natalya is good but she is not championship material. The winner will be Charlotte.
Dean Ambrose Vs. Chris Jericho : Dean Ambrose is great in the ring, but I think he will not win over Chris Jericho. The winner will be Chris Jericho.
Roman Reigns Vs. AJ Style : I think this good feud, is a good feud but I hope its not too early for a championship push for AJ Styles. AJ Styles is a good wrestler , but I think Luke Gallows and Karl Anderson will turn on AJ, as they are acting too friendly to AJ , and will cause AJ the title. The match will end in a DQ, with outside interference by Gallows and Anderson.
So, that is my predictions of WWE Payback that airs tonight on WWE Network. I like that the WWE is stepping it up with the new talent, and excited to see where they take it. Hopefully WWE keeps Shane in charge or RAW and maybe make The Authority in charge of Smackdown, which will lead to a NEW WWE draft. We will be back after the PPV tonight, with a WWE Payback recap. See you in the ring!!!
