Kevin Owens doesn't hope that his children follow his footsteps in becoming a wrestler, but if they do, he just wants them to be happy.
He talked to MLive about coming to Detroit recently at a WWE Live Event. He recalls fond memories about wrestling in the area, noting a memorable match on the independent scene, as well as his recent match with Shane McMahon inside Hell in a Cell.
I wrestled in Detroit many times before getting to WWE. There was one match me and El Generico (Zayn) wrestled Nigel McGuinness and Claudio Castagnoli (Cesaro). That was a really fun match that I look back on fondley. I have a lot of memories like that, and WWE Hell in a Cell just happened. I'll never forget fighting on top of a cell with Shane McMahon. That was something really special at Little Caesars Arena.
When asked if he'd want to see his kids wrestle, he doesn't really have an opinion on it. But if it fulfills them, they should peruse it.
I don't hope for it, but if they want to then they're more than welcome. I have no preference. I just want them to be happy. I always pursued this dream, but for the first 7 years that I was a wrestler, I worked at a gas station part time. I finished high school, but still needed a job to make money to live on. I was lucky enough to have the boss to give me time off I needed to wrestle. I think you can be happy doing whatever you want in life as long as it fulfills you can you get something out of it.
The match in question Owens referred to was back at ROH Tag Wars 2008, where Castagnoli and McGuiness defeated Steen and Generico.
