Without a doubt, this is a great achievement for Kevin Owens, who despite not having won any title has had a good year, since he had the honor of being the one who managed to bring Steve Austin out of retirement at WrestleMania 38 and then he was in charge of invite Cena to be part of the last SmackDown of 2022 and endorse the first defeat to Roman Reigns that does not come by way of disqualification.
