Kevin Owens says he giggles like a schoolgirl around Shawn Michaels

Published 3 Comments

The media attention is bound to come to Kevin Owens on a daily basis now that he’s the WWE Universal Champion, and he has revealed some more interesting backstage details on Talk is Jericho.

Speaking to his on-screen best friend, Chris Jericho, Owens revealed how special it is to see his friends achieve success in the company alongside him, including Sami Zayn, Finn Balor and Seth Rollins.


However, the most surprising thing he explained during the podcast was his fandom for one particular WWE legend.

Owens admitted that the one star that still gets him excited whenever he sees him is Shawn Michaels, and how he loves learning new things from him whenever he gets an opportunity to be around him.

He said: “When he comes around, I’ll be honest, I’m kind of like a giggling schoolgirl. Like, he’s the one guy.

“Steve Austin or The Rock come by, and I’ll talk to them, and it’s great, but I can still contain myself.

“When Shawn’s here…He made me want to do this. So when I get to sit next to him and watch the show, like in Australia last year, he was on the whole tour with us.


"And every night, I’d sit next to him, and we’d talk about what’s happening in a match, wrestling, we’d talk about family, our kids. Stuff like that blows my mind."

Owens has certainly picked a fantastic choice as someone to look up to, considering Michaels was one of the first to break the mould of what WWE stars should look like.

This is a criticism Owens currently hears a lot, that he doesn't look like the typical WWE superstar and therefore doesn't deserve to hold a World Championship in the company.

However, Michaels did a fantastic job of remaining over despite not being a visual attraction like Hulk Hogan or the Ultimate Warrior, so Owens will probably pick up fantastic tips of how that shouldn't affect his in-ring work and how he can stay as an incredible heel.

It’s great to see that Owens is just like the majority of WWE fans, unable to contain his excitement when he’s around his favourite superstar.
