Could this feud be the beginning of something greater?

What’s the story?

On the latest episode of the E&C Pod of Awesomeness, WWE Hall of Famer, Edge gave a big endorsement to Kevin Owens and said that his feud with the McMahons could end up making him a 'main man.'

In case you didn’t know...

Vince McMahon returned to television on the Sin City episode of SmackDown to address Shane McMahon’s suspension and the situation with Owens, following a physical altercation between the two men on the previous episode of SmackDown Live.

After booking a Hell in a Cell match between Owens and Shane McMahon for the Hell in a Cell pay-per-view, Owens brutally attacked McMahon and left him writhing in pain with a busted head.

The heart of the matter

Edge said that the final segment of the Sin City SmackDown episode made it seem like they were pulling the trigger on Owens become an even bigger star.

“They built it throughout the show, which was great. It seems they are pulling the trigger on Owens, properly now. Not that he hasn't had almost every title in the company already. He's basically been champion the entire time he's been there. This is a next level kind of thing. I'm assuming he's main eventing the Hell in a Cell pay-per-view with Shane now. If anyone is the master of making sure people are put over in matches, it's Shane.”

Edge went on to say that Owens’ feud with Shane has leapfrogged the WWE Championship picture in terms of interest and even said this feud could lead to him becoming an anti-hero like Stone Cold Steve Austin.

What’s next?

Tune in this Tuesday for SmackDown Live and see how Shane responds to Owens’ brutal attack of Vince McMahon.

There are only three weeks left until the Hell in a Cell pay-per-view. How the feud is handled will play a big role in how fans perceive 'The Prizefighter'.

Author’s take

Owens is already a big star in my eyes, but a bigger storyline outside of championship pursuits could make for some interesting shows.
