It’s known that Owens isn’t too receptive to other wrestlers, but he is particularly angry with Cesaro and his place in WWE. In front of Michael Cole, KO made the following remark:
"Well, my issues are simple, I just don't want Cesaro to take my spotlight," Owens said.
"And I feel like that's exactly what's been happening. Ever since he came out on RAW to answer that open challenge from John Cena, while I'm in the middle of my chase for the U.S. title, he comes out and just because he comes pretty close to beating John Cena, he thinks now that he's some sort of big shot."

Owens made it clear that his problems with Cesaro started in the past on Raw, but Owens also seems to be focused on the future. Specifically, Owens wants to prevent Cesaro from becoming a more prominent star.
Owens discussed how he himself should receive more credit. Because after all, he is the one that actually defeated John Cena, as stated:
"And the WWE Universe is clamouring for him to get the credit that he deserves. I deserve credit. He took John Cena to the limit. I beat John Cena - no one will ever take that away from me - Cesaro didn't."
"I am the one the WWE Universe should be clamoring for, not Cesaro because you know what? What was it Mr. McMahon said in that podcast? Cesaro just doesn't connect. He doesn't have it, but I do, so Cesaro just needs to stay out of my business and everything will be fine."
During the interview, Owens paid close attention to detail, especially when referring to his own words:
"After what he did on Monday, sticking his nose in my business," Owens said, "when he really had nothing to do with it, Cesaro should probably watch his back on SmackDown. Is that a threat? I don't know. Maybe it is."
Well, it’s never easy to predict the future. But it is very likely that Cesaro will try to shine, and have a stellar SummerSlam match.
It’s obvious that both competitors want to be in the spotlight. Let’s just wait till SummerSlam to see who really belongs.
