Kevin Owens Picks Shawn Michaels As His Dream Opponent

Kevin Owens has the superkick and the Stunner in his arsenal. But if he had to choose between a dream match between Shawn Michaels or Steve Austin, he would go with the man who got him into wrestling.

"If I had to pick just one, it would have to be Shawn Michaels," Owens said on the AJ Awesome Show. "When I watched [WrestleMania 11], Shawn Michaels was wrestling and after seeing him, I was 11 years old, I decided I wanted to be a wrestler because of Shawn Michaels. If I could have wrestled him, that would have been a dream come true. I was pretty small and Shawn Michaels was the smallest wrestler in WWE at the time, but he was the best one. I thought if he could do it, maybe I can."
