A current WWE SmackDown star appears to have hinted that he could be winning this year’s men’s Money in the Bank ladder match.
Speaking on today’s edition of Talking Smack, Kevin Owens made it very clear that he’s eyeing up the Money in the Bank contract and has the Universal Championship in his sights.
Joining Kayla Braxton and co-host Paul Heyman, who serves as Universal Champion Roman Reigns’ on-screen special counsel, Owens said:
“You know that pay-per-view that happens after WrestleMania? Maybe not immediately after WrestleMania. What’s it called? Money in the Bank? I love Money in the Bank, dude. I love it! The ladder matches, and there’s the briefcase with the contract in it. If you cash in the contract, anytime, anywhere, you know, big title match? One of my favorite shows. All right. Thanks, guys. Paul, lovely as always.”
Owens unsuccessfully challenged Reigns for the Universal Title in a Last Man Standing match at Royal Rumble this past January.
Reigns defends the title against Daniel Bryan and Edge in a three-way at WrestleMania, while Owens has a singles match against Sami Zayn.
