Main Event Radio's own Ryan Ryder spoke to the brand new Universal Champion Kevin Owens about his reaction to all the criticism he's been getting from these two individuals.
"Jim Cornette and I have never really seen eye-to-eye. Ultimately, he knew that I could make it if I wanted to but he just didn't think I had the right attitude. But that's just because the way he and I saw things differently. He's been saying that he thinks that I must have changed the way I see things because now I have success and it must be because I changed things. But it's not; now I just work with people who I agree with more. The people who I work with now have the same vision that I do of what professional wrestling should be and what it is now. Jim and I just didn't share that vision.
As far as Vince Russo is concerned, I don't think he means a single word of what he says. I think he says all of it to get attention. I think he knows how good I am and that me being the champion is a great move, he's just trying to rile people up"
