Kevin Owens has opened up on his run with the WWE Universal Championship in 2016.
After Finn Balor’s 24-hour reign with the belt, Owens was the second-ever Universal Champion. Owens held the title for 188 days and lost it in a quick match to Goldberg at the 2017 Fastlane PPV event.
While speaking on WWE After the Bell, Owens noted that he has often worried about ‘what’s next’ throughout his WWE career, so when he was the top champion, he didn’t enjoy it as much as he should have because of this.
“I used always to want more and more and more. What’s next? What’s next? What’s next? There are so many moments over the past eight years that I didn’t properly enjoy because I was always worried about what was the next thing. When I was Universal Champion, I had this incredible run with Chris Jericho and so many great moments, so many fun moments that people still talk about today. I’m ashamed to say that I really did not enjoy that as much as I should have.”
