They have both had success but Kevin does half the work and gets the promotion. He is the teacher's pet. Triple H handed Kevin the Universal Title. He was not handed anything when he cashed in the briefcase at Wrestlemania. Everyone has a Kevin Owens in their lives, but he has THE Kevin Owens in his life.
Cole asks Seth about being replaced by Kevin Owens in the friendship with Triple H. Seth says you cannot replace Seth Rollins. Kevin is a cog in the matchine.
