Kevin Owens’ son got into the ring for the first time. 

Prior to game seven of the Stanley Cup Finals between the Edmonton Oilers and the Florida Panthers, WWE’s Kevin Owens guest appeared on NHL Now

As the conversation moved along, Kevin revealed that his son Owen got into a wrestling ring for the first time. Owen stands at six-foot-eight at the age of 16. 

He’s 16, he’s back there (behind the camera). He’s six-foot-eight. He’s hard to miss (Kevin said about his son).

He got in the ring last week for the first time so yeah, that might be an avenue. It was pretty awesome to see, and with WWE obviously, I’m able to kind of bring him to the best possible place to start training so, it’s great to see him kind of have the interest, at least give it a shot and see what happens… Yeah, it’s a real thrill. 

Next week, Toronto, Ontario, Canada is going to be hosting Friday Night SmackDown in addition to the Money in the Bank and NXT Heatwave Premium Live Events. 

Kevin spoke about family and friends wanting tickets to shows when WWE comes to Canada. He stated that the Scotiabank Arena sent him an email about the suite he requested and told him it’s time to pay for it. 

Just my family takes up about 15 people (when WWE has shows in Canada) and then there’s friends. ‘It’s in Canada. We gotta go’ so, I actually got an email from the Scotiabank Arena about, ‘Hey, you know that suite you’re buying for your whole family? It’s time to pay for it’ so, yeah, it’s not cheap, it’s not cheap.

Owens is set to be in action at Money in the Bank. He’ll be teaming with Randy Orton and Undisputed WWE Champion Cody Rhodes to take on The Bloodline (Solo Sikoa, Jacob Fatu, Tama Tonga or Tonga Loa) in a six-man tag.
