WWE News: Vince McMahon unhappy with Ashton Kutcher making jokes about Kevin Owens
As per Taz, Vince McMahon was not happy with jokes directed towards his Universal Champion.
Taz, on the Taz show, received a call from one his fans who wanted to talk about a segment on RAW that had guest stars Ashton Kutcher and Danny Masterson with Chris Jericho and Kevin Owens.
Taz disapproved of that segment because both Masterson and Kutcher were directing "fat" jokes towards the WWE Universal Champion Kevin Owens, and also made jokes directed at several other WWE Superstars.
Taz confirmed that neither Vince McMahon nor the staff backstage approved of those comments.
He further went on to state that it was the job of the people working behind-the-scenes to get their talent over on a weekly basis. If stars like Kutcher and Masterson buried the company's champions/superstars on live TV, it would only make the company's job all the more difficult.
Taz felt that stars shouldn't indulge in such shenanigans and should respect the business and the performers working in it. The caller responded to Taz's thoughts on Kevin Owens being buried on live TV by saying that the stars were just pointing out the obvious i.e. Owens being fat and were having fun with it.
Taz said that he understood the caller's point-of-view, but felt that one should not "go into someone else's house and insult them".
This coming Sunday, the WWE Universal Champion Kevin Owens is scheduled to participate in the traditional five-on-five Survivor Series tag team match against Team SmackDown Live!
Along with Owens, Seth Rollins, Roman Reigns, Chris Jericho, and Braun Strowman are also going to participate in the tag team match representing Team RAW. Owens is also slated to face-off against the United States Champion Roman Reigns next year in a "Champion vs. Champion" match for the WWE Universal Championship.
