WWE management changed significantly after Stephanie McMahon announced that she is taking a leave of absence on January 10th. At the time, Stephanie served as Chairwoman and Co-CEO of WWE.
During an interview with “Antonio Express-News”, Kevin Owens was asked about Stephanie McMahon leaving the company. Owens praised Stephanie and said that he is happy for her taking time off to care for her family.
“(Stephanie) has been nothing but amazing to me my entire time here. And I was so happy to see her more at the shows and get to be around her and get to work for her. Everybody’s also kind of happy that she gets to take this time for herself.”
Last month, Vince McMahon informed the board that he is returning to participate in media rights negotiations and kicked off the company sale process. In the same interview asked Owens about his opinion on these things. Owens said the following.
“The internet will say what the internet will say, and then the reality will be what really matters. We just care about what we do in the ring. That’s what we try to do our best at.”
Kevin Owens is scheduled to face Roman Reigns for the Undisputed WWE Universal Championship this Saturday at Royal Rumble PLE.
