Kevin Owens is not taking his loss from the Royal Rumble well. At the show, he was beaten by Roman Reigns in a Last Man Standing match but now Owens is blaming the referee for the loss.
While speaking on The Jake Asman Show, Kevin Owens discussed everything he went through in the match and said he has never been cheated by a referee like that. Here is the quote, courtesy of Fightful:
“I’m still recovery from the Royal Rumble. It was a pretty rough night for me. I was thrown off a 12-foot platform onto a bunch of tables, I got hit by a golf cart, I jumped off a forklift that was about 10 feet in the air, I burned my arm on a light that was part of our setup, and to top it all off, I didn’t win because I think a referee got paid off or something. A lot to recover from. I’ve never been cheated by a referee that way before. I used to play hockey in Canada as a kid so you would think it would happen before.”
Based on their interactions from last week’s SmackDown, it seems Reigns and Owens will continue to feud. Should their rivalry last until Elimination Chamber, that will mark three straight pay per views the two will have clashed on.
