That’s quite the honor. A good in-ring performer is a great thing to have in wrestling but a great talker is even better. It means everything in wrestling to have someone who can get out there and get a story across with their talking abilities. You know them when you see it, though you might not get to see them very often in WWE. The company does have them though, and one has some special privileges.

According to Wrestling Observer Radio, Kevin Owens is allowed to say just about whatever he wants in WWE and is one of the least scripted wrestlers in the company. Owens is allowed to say what he thinks as he has earned the company’s confidence in his speaking abilities. This comes as Owens’ WWE contract is set to expire at the end of January and his future in the company is not clear.

Owens can talk. Check out what he can say when given the chance:

The Seattle crowd boos Kevin Owens and Elias into oblivion: Raw, Oct. 1, 2018

Kevin Owens rants against Shane McMahon: SmackDown LIVE, July 9, 2019

Kevin Owens starts his career as a social media producer

Opinion: I’m not surprised that Owens is given this privilege because he has shown how good he is with a microphone. What I don’t get is why so few WWE stars are allowed to showcase themselves. If they are bad at talking, don’t let them talk, but how many people get a chance in the first place? I’d love to see Owens stay with WWE, though I don’t know if this is going to matter enough.
