Kevin Owens is up for a certain challenge at this point in his career.
Owens has been a top player in the WWE since signing with the sports entertainment company but he has done it as a heel on television. Now, Owens is up for turning into a babyface character if the opportunity arises.
For a background on this Superstar, you have go back to his early career as he began his career in 2000 at the age of 16. He had a run in Ring of Honor (ROH) from 2007 - 2014 where he wrestled under his real name, Kevin Steen, where he held the ROH World Championship and ROH World Tag Team Championship. He also wrestled o the independent circuit for 14 years, most notably in Pro Wrestling Guerrilla (PWG), where he held the PWG World Championship a record three times, as well as the PWG World Tag Team Championship on three occasions.
Other promotions that he worked for include International Wrestling Syndicate (IWS), where he held three times the IWS World Heavyweight Championship, All American Wrestling (AAW), where he held the AAW Heavyweight Championship, and Combat Zone Wrestling (CZW), where he held the CZW Iron Man Championship.
Owens signed with WWE in 2014 and was placed WWE's developmental branch NXT, where he was a one-time NXT Champion. He was called up to the main roster in May 2015. During his time thus far under the WWE banner, he has held the Universal Championship once (being the longest-reigning titleholder at 188 days), the Intercontinental Championship twice, and the United States Championship three times.
Owens recently spoke with the Argus Leader to talk about various topics. During the interview, he was asked about possibly turning babyface. Here is what he had to say:
"I don't really know as far as any ideas or plans that anybody would have for that. I think I can make anything work. If I can get people to boo me, then I can get people to cheer for me if I want. I'd be up for the challenge."
Also during the interview, he was asked about how scripted his promos are.
"I'm sure other performers get different guidelines, and I think it's a day-by-day scenario of who gets to have more freedom than other people. We always get help with our interviews from our writers, but you learn to find ways to get your own credits instead of using somebody else's words. Some people are good at it, and other people aren't as good. But the people who are good at it usually get more leeway of how to speak and what to say because the fact they can carry an interview. I always know where I'm going, and I know what they want me to deliver. But I do get to put my own spin on it most of the time."
