Video: John Cena Says Kevin Owens Belongs In the Most Elite Class of WWE Stars, Talks NXT Talents

John Cena

– In the video above, WWE United States Champion John Cena talks to Tom Phillips after his win over Kevin Owens at Battleground last night. Cena had big praise for the former NXT Champion:

“Unbelievable match. After the first two with Kevin Owens, I knew I was gonna be in for something special. Being here for a while you truly become a target and I think this [US Title] makes me an extra big target. We’ve never had an influx of talent, especially with an NXT chip on their shoulder, and I mean that in the best way. These guys have proven themselves down there and feel, appropriately so, as if they belong here. And proof positive, Kevin Owens belongs here and he belongs in the most elite class of WWE Superstars. He gave me a run for my money but the term “never give up” isn’t always when you’re down and out. When you think you got it in the bag and your opponent somehow acts like he’s made of steel, you just gotta keep going, sometimes you gotta bring it to a level you’re not used to. Man, he… that’s everything I got, that’s everything I got. I’m just glad I came out with the championship.”
