Kevin Owens Talks Changing His Finishing Move to The Stunner

Kevin Owens Talks Changing His Finishing Move to The Stunner
Kevin Owens recently was interviewed by Sports Illustrated where he talked about a wide range of topics.

This includes why he switched from a pop-up powerbomb to the Stunner, which was made famous by Stone Cold Steve Austin.

According to Owens, he noticed that a lot of talent was doing powerbombs, which made him want to change his finisher.

“I felt like everybody was doing powerbombs left and right, and I wanted to try something else. And one day it occurred to me that no one does the stunner as a finishing move, but to me, it’s always been the best move. So I just went to Steve one day when he was here and I asked him, and he said, ‘I can’t believe nobody’s asked me this before, but of course you can use it. Do whatever you want with it.’

I did that out of respect for the people who’ve come before me. I would never want to do that without his approval. He gave me the approval and it’s working for me, so I have no intention of stopping and no intention of renaming it, either. It’s the stunner and it always will be the stunner.”

Kevin Owens wasn’t on this week’s Smackdown from Norfolk, Virginia. Although he’s been in a program with Shane McMahon on television and they wrestled at SummerSlam, he doesn’t have a match booked for the next WWE PPV event, Clash of Champions.
