Ever since Kevin Owens debuted on the main roster and destroyed John Cena with a pop-up powerbomb, he has become a fan favourite.
Despite technically being a heel, Owens has managed to achieve a huge fan following and is regularly competing with former WWE champions such as Dolph Ziggler and The Miz, often defeating them very quickly.
Although having lost the Intercontinental Championship at WrestleMania, this doesn’t seem to have prevented him from moving up the card every week. It is arguable that WWE planned for Owens to have a short reign in order to prepare him for competing in main event matches with much tougher superstars in a shorter time period.

Considering the huge amount of injuries that have affected WWE in the past year, it would be a smart decision to begin training more mid-card superstars in order for them to become main event draws.
Kevin Owens is perhaps the best example of this, having been both NXT champion and Intercontinental champion within a two year period. He has already been brought into the WWE title picture with recent matches against the likes of AJ Styles, Chris Jericho, and Dean Ambrose.
His current feud with Sami Zayn is a huge draw and fans have been waiting to this see this for a long time, and whilst a long term feud with Sami Zayn is very likely and would provide us with many fantastic matches, an opportunity for Owens to become WWE champion might be a bigger draw in comparison.
The best opportunity for this to occur would be ‘Money In the Bank’ in June. Considering the nature of the ‘Money In The Bank’ clause, it would make perfect sense for Owens to be the man to win and eventually cash in when the WWE champion is unprepared. This would fit in well with his heel character.
Perhaps more importantly, however, he is one of the strongest looking superstars on the roster right now and is completely over with the crowd.
Perhaps it's time for a new talent to become the face of the WWE, and that man could be Kevin Owens.
