It was all a fluke. You got lucky because the truth is, Kevin says he was a split second away from putting you through the mat with a pop up power bomb and if that had happened, he would be number one contender, not you.

Kevin says you can ‘BELIEVE THAT’.

Roman says he doesn’t know but that sounds like a bunch of excuses. The way he beat Kevin was not luck, it was straight skill. You can stand out there all night and Talk Owens Talk or you can man up and get in the ring and Fight Owens Fight. He is not going anywhere until he gets a big fight and you can BELIEVE THAT.
