Kevin Owens is one of the most talented pro wrestlers in WWE right now. Owens is a former NXT Champion and also a former WWE Universal Champion. Blessed with extreme mic skills, Owens is a complete package of what pro wrestling needs.
Over the years, Kevin Owens has earned enough popularity from the fans. He is loved as a heel and as a baby face too. The 38-year-old has a huge list of accomplishments, among which the biggest is maintaining Night 1 of WrestleMania 38; a feat that every superstar dreams of.
Recently, after CM Punk erupted at the AEW Media scrum and blamed one-half of the ‘Young Bucks’ to be in contact with wrestlers outside of AEW. Punk blamed Kenny Omega and the Young Bucks for spreading lies against him.

However, one post that shook everyone was that of Kevin Owens. The timing was uncanny, as Owens took to Twitter to post a picture of him and Stone Cold from the Night 1 main event of WrestleMania 39. Several people took that as a dig toward CM Punk on his inability to main event WrestleMania even once.

Fans had a lot to say about the post.
People are missing this is a shot at punk. It was posted the moment he was going off on k.o.'s friends in a press conference.
Punk treated owens like crap too, and k.o. is letting him know he accomplished what punk couldn't

Exhibit A of how main event standards have dropped in WWE.
The poutine King vs a man retired for 20 years due to injury. If Wrestlemania was a two night event while Punk was in WWE. I think @CMPunk would have been in multiple main events.

Some fans initially believed, the AEW media scrum to be kayfabe, but now felt that it was indeed a shoot interview.
Maybe Punk's presser really is a shoot. Yeesh

Further, fans had various opinions.
August 20, 2021 – @CMPunk returns to the ring after a 7+ year hiatus, premiering in AEW bringing legions of fans to tears and gave us a clinic for how to cut a promo. That same night, @FightOwensFight lost to @BaronCorbinWWE by DQ being the 3rd wheel in a storyline. So there.

Austin definitely wishes it was with punk though so the build could've been more than an oversized comedy cowboy hat.

Many felt Owens took a dig against CM Punk. Additionally, he was a former stable mate of the Young Bucks and Adam Cole and is still friends with many on the AEW roster.
Kevin Owens wants Roman Reigns to know he still owes him

Owens continued, “I wanna be Champion in WWE again, and there’s a lot of titles I’m gunning for, I’m gunning for all of them.”
He then asked Meghan Morant if she was going to be on SmackDown this week, which Morant approved. Owens then told her, “If you see Roman Reigns, can you do me a favor? Can you remind him that owes me?”
The former WWE Universal Champion thus took a dig at Roman Reigns and challenged him for a potential match in the future.
