Freddie Prinze Jr. believes that a top WWE star is “back” now that Triple H is in power.
On the August 1 edition of Raw, Kevin Owens destroyed Ezekiel with an apron powerbomb that caused his rival to be stretchered out after months of feuding.
Speaking on Wrestling with Freddie, Freddie Prinze Jr. gave his thoughts on Owens’ booking.
“Kevin Owens is going to be the main face or heel, I don’t care, on ‘Monday Night Raw,’ whether anyone likes it or not,” Prinze Jr. said. “I saw video of him at a house show with Roman Reigns, and he’s holding Roman Reigns in a chinlock on the ground, talking trash to a fan. A fan is talking trash to him, so he goes in on the fan and starts talking about how much money he makes per week, compared to how much this man heckling him is making. And he does it in this way that’s just obnoxious enough that you know ‘Hey man, he’s doing the heel.’ He’s not this insecure prick who’s breaking character and getting upset with the fan.”
Prinze Jr. continued on to add that he believes both Raw and SmackDown would be better off if KO was featured on both shows.
“This is a guy that will make you watch,” Prinze Jr. said. “When he came up to ‘Monday Night Raw’, annihilated John Cena, did his own finisher to him, and did the ‘You can’t see me’, I was like ‘Oh god. They figured it out. Wrestling’s going to be great again.’ And then Vince was like ‘Nope. That guy’s not buff. That’s over.’ And now I feel like it’s coming back, ten years later … Kevin Owens is back.”
The former WWE writer concluded with a final proclamation, saying:
“I would put him on both shows if you could,” he said. “I think he’s cash money.”
