Owens has been given the licence to cut some of the best promos in wrestling since HHH took the reigns, and that continued on Raw last night.
Kevin Owens’ mouth-watering promo
During last night’s show, KO came face-to-face with Austin Theory, where he cut a promo that will likely go down as one of the best of the year.
Owens spoke about how he wanted Theory to impress him and told Mr. Money in the Bank that he isn’t as good as he thinks he is.
The former Universal Champion continued by telling Theory what he needed to do to become the ‘face of WWE’ in what was an incredibly fiery and passionate promo.
Theory didn’t take Owens’ advice, which led to a wild brawl between the two. The pair will now go one-on-one next week, with the match announcement earning a fantastic reaction from the crowd.

The reaction from WWE fans to Kevin Owens’ promo
The opinion that Owens’ promo was one of the best of the year has seemingly been shared by WWE fans across social media.
Below are just some of the reactions to the clip of KO’s promo from last night’s show, with the 38-year-old’s work on the mic almost being universally praised.
The common feeling is that, with his fantastic promo ability and equally great work in the ring, Owens really could be one of the best WWE Superstars on the roster right now.

There's never gonna be another Kevin Owens. He's the one. He's a singular entity, and one of the best to ever do it. https://t.co/hV3Knxk5VY— ☕️ Chelsea 👓 (@panelsandprose) September 13, 2022
KO should be the person to beat Roman if it isn’t the Rock at WM. Sorry Cody fans. https://t.co/q6LRDxYwgq— NikJohnson.Art 👁 (@NikJohnson_Art) September 13, 2022
Owens bringing some 🔥🔥🔥 – I know a lot of people are saying it but seriously the giant step forward WWE has taken in Vince’s removal is shocking. https://t.co/cQ0k54BPIP— 2Z Designs (@2Z_Designs) September 13, 2022
What does WWE have planned for Kevin Owens?
Triple H is a big fan of Owens, so don’t be too surprised to see the former NXT Champion involved in top feuds as we head into 2023.
Some fans have even speculated, as a result of his recent work with The Bloodline, that KO may be next in line to challenge Roman Reigns for the Undisputed WWE Universal Championship.
However, the ever-reliable Wrestling Observer is reporting that Owens isn’t slated to be Reigns’ opponent when ‘The Tribal Chief’ next defends his title in Saudi Arabia on November 5.
You can read more about that report by clicking here, but the general premise is that Owens won’t be Reigns’ opponent at Crown Jewel, although a match between the two is likely in the near future.
