Kevin Owens: Once I'm Not In The Ring, I Hope To Have A Backstage Role Or Do Commentary

Kevin Owens is set for the biggest WrestleMania of his career as welcomes Steve Austin onto the KO Show.

Owens recently signed a new contract with WWE and has shown no signs of slowing down when it comes to his in-ring career.

However, Owens does have plans when he eventually wraps up his career.

"I signed a new contract so I'll be here for a little while doing this. once that contract is done, I really don't see myself not being in the ring for many many more years, but I really enjoy the other side of it where...I enjoy watching other people do well. When I'm in the locker room and other people come up to me for advice, I enjoy giving it to them and I enjoy seeing them put it in practice and if it works for them, that's a great feeling. I've really taking to seeing other people do well. I get as much satisfaction out of that, if not more, honestly, than when I'm...I've accomplished so much out of my career and this weekend is going to be insane as well. not that I feel like I've done it all, there are still things I would love to accomplish, but I feel like I've had an amazing career, so when I see other people do well, that fulfills me in a different way. Ultimately, once I'm not in the ring actively anymore, I really think I'll hopefully have a role backstage somehow or even maybe do commentary. Those are all things I really enjoy. I don't see myself going anywhere. Hopefully I can help people that are here now and people that are here in the future like others started helping me," Owens said on The MackMania podcast.
