Kevin Owens has had arguably the greatest and most impressive debut in both the WWE and NXT since his debut 7 months ago.
Some may ask why he has been given such a monumental start and why he is being made to look as strong as he does.
Well, in this article I will discuss 5 reasons why the WWE trusts Kevin Owens so much and why he is the best superstar currently under contract by WWE.

Firstly, Kevin Owens is naturally gifted on the microphone and manages to captivate the audience and make them believe every word he says. In his most recent promos which have featured on Raw and Smackdown he has talked about John Cena and how he has 'become the very thing Cena hates, a dynasty'.
He then goes on to talk about Cena's superhero image and how he is delusional with the whole 'hustle, loyalty and respect' gimmick. Those that are above the age of 12 will listen to these comments made by Owens and hear legitimate truth within his words.

His mic skills resemble those of Harley Race and Chris Jericho in the respect that he is always calm and collected when speaking to the audience and does not need to shout or scream to get his point across.
The fact that he does not shout and is calm when cutting promos helps the audience to connect more to what he is saying and it also gives him the appearance of being above the audience and above other wrestlers in the WWE hierarchy. This sense of self righteousness is vital for any WWE superstar who is looking to establish themselves as a legitimate heel in the business.
Secondly, Kevin Owens' in ring ability is unmatched in terms of ability and capacity to include new moves in his arsenal and make them look natural and effortless. Owens is a 275 pound man who performs moves that you wouldn't see the 180 pound Rey Mysterio perform is his prime.
Moves such as the senton from the top rope and the his top rope moonsault are both spectacles to see given that he is a 275 pound man. Owens also manages to bring out the best in all of the superstars he faces in the ring.
Thanks to Owens, the days of Cena's five moves of doom are gone as Owens forces superstars such as Cena to innovate new and more exciting moves such as the sunset flip powerbomb, sit out facebuster, michinoku driver and the springboard stunner. These moves are necessary for Cena to learn and perfect as he must look as good as Owens in the ring to add legitimacy to his wins over Owens at pay per views such as Money in the Bank.
Owens also possesses the gift of 'selling'. Owens is one of the few wrestlers who are able to sell moves very well in the ring and not make himself look weak in the process of doing so. This is something which is not only impressive but vital to a superstars' career.
Last but not least we have Owens' unlimited potential to be involved in memorable and interesting feuds. Owens has been involved in feuds with Neville, Sami Zayn, Finn Balor, John Cena and Samoa Joe.
The fact that Owens has had this many feuds in the short amount of time he has been present in WWE shows his rare capability to work with other superstars and make crowd pleasing feuds.
Perhaps the most note worthy of these feuds is the ongoing feud with John Cena in which Owens beat Cena at the Elimination Chamber PPV and Cena beat Owens at the Money in the Bank PPV so the feud will undoubtedly end with Owens beating Cena for the United States championship at the Battleground PPV.
If Owens beats Cena at Battleground and drops the NXT title to Balor at the televised live event in Japan he will establish himself as an unstoppable heel who one day may challenge the future WWE Champion but there is no doubt that he is capable of performing such a feat.
