During the last episode of WWE Talking Smack, available on the WWE Network, Paul Heyman and Kevin Owens had a heated exchange in which Owens vowed to win the WWE Universal Championship from Roman Reigns. Additionally, Heyman praised Owens and said he understands “The Prizefighter”. Here are some highlights:

Heyman on his respect for Owens and knowing that Owens is at a crossroads:

Heyman: “I have a lot of respect for you, I want you to understand this. And sometimes Roman Reigns doesn’t have a lot of respect until people prove it to him. But I want you to know that I understand how dangerous you are. I want you to know that I understand you much better than most people understand you here. I was a fan of yours before you came to WWE, when everyone liked to hit you for the way you run your business, for your ideas because they were too radical, too progressive.

“I love that you’re at… a crossroads in your career because you are, and you know it. And it’s your time to pivot. Now you can go down this path, which far too many people love to follow. You can navigate along, you can navigate to the semi-main event level. Or you can do something like watch The Undertaker’s retreat on Sunday, and be motivated and inspired by it. And you can say, “I want it to be me. I want my reputation to live on in a hundred years… ”. The way to do it, and this is where it interests me, is at Roman Reigns’ expense.

“You are looking here for an opportunity to go to Roman Reigns and consolidate your legacy.”

Owens responded with an intense message in which he declares his intention to challenge Reigns for the WWE Universal Championship:

Owens: « [Its almost like] you think it will be kind of good for Roman Reigns. Because Paul as much as I respect you, as much as I admire you, as much as I’ve admired you for many years, I know you really only work for one person, and that’s not Roman Reigns. It’s you. ”

“Let me tell you this, because everything you said is absolutely true. Know this: It won’t be good for Roman or for you, because once Roman Reigns gets his balls back and stops making his cousin try to do his dirty work, I’ll be there. And do you know what I am, Paul? I am not a good guy. I’m not a bad guy. I’m the guy who’s going to beat Roman Reigns and take the Universal Championship away from him.
