Kevin Owens' Promos Have Been Unscripted, Paul Heyman To Change How Promos Are Done

Kevin Owens' Promos Have Been Unscripted, Paul Heyman Reportedly Looking To Change How Promos Are Done
- The Wrestling Observer Newsletter reports that Paul Heyman has been trying to make backstage interviews come across as more realistic.

Similar to what we saw with Drew McIntyre and Cedric Alexander on Raw this past Monday, Heyman wants there to be consequences to everyone's actions and for the atmosphere to feel authentic.

In the past, Heyman has worked with a number of wrestlers when it comes to in-ring and promo work including Charlotte Flair, Ronda Rousey and Aleister Black. Rousey had publicly talked in the past about Heyman working with her, including with some of her promos on Becky Lynch.

- Kevin Owens has been cutting his recent promos without a script, according to a new report from Sports Illustrated.

While Owens has been working with no script as of late, he is working off of bullet points, given to him by the SmackDown writers.

WWE is currently pushing Owens as a babyface, something they had planned months ago before he had to turn heel to make up for the WrestleMania 35 injury to Daniel Bryan. It's been reported that WWE gave Owens the Stunner as a finisher to help get him over as a strong babyface. WWE allowing Owens to work without a script shows that they have a lot of faith in the former Universal Champion.

There's no word yet on where WWE is going with the current Owens vs. Shane McMahon feud, but speculation is that the program will end at SummerSlam with a match between the two. As noted by SI, WWE could really advance the push of Owens by having their SummerSlam match end with Owens making "short work" of McMahon.
