During a recent episode of ARN, Arn Anderson discussed how he believes that the WWE missed an opportunity to turn Kevin Owens babyface after he beat John Cena at Elimination Chamber 2015. Here’s what he had to say:
He can just be — not to say anything like Steve Austin’s style, but he’s the antihero. He’s that guy that kicks ass, he’s the everyday man that doesn’t look like he could go out there and pop-up powerbomb Mark Henry. Hell, I’ve seen it more than once. He does some spectacular stuff. But the audience was cheering for him in a way that, ‘Hey man, we like this dude.’ Make him a babyface the very next day. Switch gears, because to put on that kind of performance to beat John Cena 1-2-3 with his finish — there’s no bigger launching pad at that particular time. So go with it, switch gears, turn him into what they want to see.
