Tonight at Wrestlemania, Kevin Owens will defend the Intercontinental Championship against six other men in a ladder match. He’s got quite the challenge ahead of him, but Owens has a simple and easy plan.

Alongside NXT General Manager William Regal, Owens recently spoke with The BBC to promote WrestleMania and revealed what his plan is to retain the IC title during tonight’s show.

You can read the full interview right here. Below are the highlights:

What does Owens think about his IC Title Ladder match tonight? 

“I’m just gonna smash everybody. The match itself is a little nerve wracking as there are seven guys, everyone’s looking to steal the show, everyone’s looking to make Wrestlemania the big moment for themselves.”

What does Owens think about his opponents?

“The Miz main event was at Wrestlemania but since then people don’t respect him, let’s be honest. And Dolph Zigler he’s been world heavyweight champion but since then he’s had a rough bath, and Stardust and Zack Ryder and all those guys – everybody is so talented but not necessarily had a Wrestlemania moment. Even if you look back at The Miz, he main evented it but people remember The Rock. Sami Zayn is trying to make a name for himself and I’m trying to make sure I hold the Intercontinental title, so it’s nerve-wracking to be in a match with so many guys and have so much to prove, but it’s exciting as well.”
