Kevin Owens has revealed what it's really like to work with Braun Strowman

There's been increasing rumours over the last few days surrounding the decision to put the Universal Championship on Brock Lesnar instead of Braun Strowman.

The decision looked bizarre as it looked increasingly likely that Lesnar was to return to UFC in early 2019 to take on Daniel Cormier for the Heavyweight championship.

But two things have come out since Crown Jewel on Friday - firstly the Wrestling Observer claiming that Strowman is working with two injured knees, hence why he was defeated by the Beast Incarnate.

Mike Johnson of PW Insider reported yesterday though that Strowman's backstage conduct may be the reason that Vince McMahon hasn't pulled the trigger yet on a title run.

If there's one other superstar who will have gotten to know Strowman better in the last year though, it's Kevin Owens.

KO and Strowman engaged in a feud earlier in 2018, which climaxed when Owens was pretty much squashed in a singles match at SummerSlam.

He spent the majority of the summer being flatlined by Strowman - but Owens has nothing but praise to give to the Monster Among Men for his in-ring work ethic.

"For a guy who's been doing this for three years, and had maybe five matches before he showed up at SummerSlam [in 2015] making his debut, and for a guy that big, he's pretty incredible," Owens told Inside The Ropes, via WrestlingInc. "His progression has been unbelievable."

There's some downfalls to working with a man the size of Strowman though, as KO detailed.

"He's still 300-and-something pounds, he's six feet eight inches, everything he does hurts," Owens continued.

"That part of it's been a bit rough, but it is what we do, it's a sacrifice of what we do obviously.

"But it's been cool and people seem to enjoy what we're doing. That's really all that matters in the end."

Owens is of course out of action indefinitely after having surgery on both knees - being flung around continuously by Strowman over a few months probably didn't help his legs.

It's great to see someone praising Strowman though at a time where speculation could cause him to hit a flat spot in his career.
