WWE star Kevin Owens recently appeared on an episode of WWE’s The Bump, where he talked about a number of topics including the crowd reaction to Randy Orton at Backlash.

Owens said, “The most amazing part for me was actually seeing the love and respect they showed Randy because, not to dwell on it, but Randy is somebody I’ve looked up to for so long, before I even got to WWE as an aspiring wrestler and then once I got here, someone who, in my opinion, is exactly what a veteran should be and what we all aspire to be as far as an example in the locker room. [He] Wasn’t always perfect in his younger years but readily admits to it, owns up to the mistakes he’s made. He’s truly a leader without wanting to be one, without saying he’s a leader. He doesn’t have to say he’s a locker room leader, he just is.”

On getting emotional over it:

“He was soaking it in and I tell … it meant a lot to him and that made me almost a little emotional honestly. Before the match started, when he was coming out, like doing his pose in the corner … that was a really special moment, that’s what I take away the most from that whole thing. And the fans, they were incredible all night, but what they did for Randy and giving him the love and respect he deserves, that was really cool.”
