On the September 12 episode of SmackDown Live, we saw Vince McMahon, who just turned 72 years old back in August, get busted open by a headbutt from Kevin Owens.
Owens, who will face Shane McMahon this Sunday in a Hell in a Cell match, appeared on the In This Corner podcast on Wednesday, where he spoke about his segment with the WWE chairman.
“I’ve said this before to my relatives and my friends, and I might have said it in an interview here or there, [but]there are moments in my WWE career that I will forever remember. The Universal Title, my debut at NXT, my debut on Raw, winning the Intercontinental Title was a huge deal to me, but being in the ring with Vince McMahon and giving him the worst beating that he’s probably ever taken outside of a wrestling match, you know besides the times where he actually faced somebody in the ring bell to bell for a match. I don’t think I’ve ever seen anybody beat Vince McMahon how I beat him, and it was something that will stay with me for a very long time. When I look back at my accolades and the things I accomplished, when it’s all said and done, it’s going to be at the top of the list for sure, or very close to it.”
Owens also explained why him headbutting Vince McMahon took his angle with Shane McMahon to the next level.
“[Vince] talked a lot of smack, told me I was going to get my a** kicked by Shane and he would [expletive]me up. He wasn’t shy about making his feelings known as far as Hell in a Cell was going to go down, and then I cracked him in the head, and he stopped talking.”
