Kevin Owens, unlike many others, does seem to have a lot of time for the audience. Now whether that section of audience falls under the category of his fans or not is rather debatable.
Recently at a house show, the Universal Champion tried to grab a sign board from a Seth Rollins supporter which read ‘Redesign, Rebuild, Reclaim’. The Rollins fan raised it during Owens’ entrance and the champion tried to grab it albeit unsuccessfully.
Even after yesterday’s episode of RAW, Kevin Owens got involved with a member of the audience again, but this time, the encounter was quite intense. This happened after the televised end and just before Sami Zayn came out to Rollins’ rescue
Owens was delivering blows to Rollins and was holding his face towards the crowd when a guy from the audience screamed, “Go back to Canada, Go back to Canada” at Owens. Owens ignoring it at first, punched Rollins a bit more but marched back to reply to the hater. He was quoted as saying:
“I'll go back to Canada, you go back to screwing your sister, you stupid redneck”
This was met with a lot of jeering from the section of the audience who heard the vitriolic reply.
You can see the video of the confrontation here:
Owning it in his way, Kevin Owens also tweeted about the incident:
"Go back to Canada!"— Kevin Owens (@FightOwensFight) October 11, 2016
If Owens' best friend Chris Jericho would have heard that, the hater would have surely made it to ‘The List’, the duo has been going strong for a while now. However, cracks have started to form between the ‘best friends’, with Kevin Owens walking out on Chris Jericho after his beatdown at the hands of Seth Rollins.
Kevin Owens and Seth Rollins will be battling it out at Hell In A Cell for the Universal Championship. The RAW exclusive Pay-Per-View will be live on October 30th from Boston, Massachusetts.
