WWE Intercontinental Champion Kevin Owens recently spoke with The Montreal Gazette about going into WrestleMania 32 as the I-C champion and more. Below are some of the highlights from the interview.
On being Intercontinental Champion:
“When I was a kid, I would have replica belts, the foam belts, and the one that I always liked the most was the Intercontinental title. Every time that I would beat my pillow in one of our matches, I would win the Intercontinental title… The coolest part is that the design of the Intercontinental title now … is very close to the design that I had when I was wrestling in my basement against my pillows when I was a kid.”
On going into WrestleMania 32 as the Intercontinental Champion:
“It’s an incredible feeling. I remember sitting in the stands at WrestleMania 30 thinking, ‘I have to be a part of this one day.’ And now it’s only two years later and I’m going to (WrestleMania). There’s really no way to put that into words.”
