That’s an elite group to join. One of the many criticisms in WWE as of late has been the promo work. There are only so many ways to say the same things over and over again and it is pretty clear that the writing staff has run out of ways to say them. This was one of the major criticisms from Jon Moxley after he left the company but now, we might be seeing a bit of a change.
According to Sports Illustrated, Kevin Owens is currently being allowed to cut his promos without having them scripted out for him beforehand. While Owens is working with bullet points to cover, he is coming up with the majority of his promos on his own, including the ones where he has targeted Shane McMahon. This is rare in WWE, where almost no one is allowed to speak without a script.
This feels more authentic. Check out one of Owens’ entertaining rants:
Opinion: I have no idea what took them this long on something like this. Owens has shown that he knows how to talk on the microphone and it isn’t hard to tell him the gist of what he is supposed to say. If he has shown the abilities to do something like this, let him see what he can do and see if things get any better. Owens knows what he would say better than the writers, so let him run with it and maybe it can be an improvement.
