Kevin Owens has been heavily involved in some of the top feuds on Raw in 2020, and he recently teamed up with Rey Mysterio to face Seth Rollins and Buddy Murphy.

Over the last few years Kevin Owens has worked with some interesting names, and during an interview with ESPN he made it very clear that he has a great deal of respect for Rey Mysterio.

The former Universal Champion even went as far as to call Rey Mysterio “the greatest wrestler of all time.”

“In my opinion, along with Shawn Michaels, [Rey is] the greatest wrestler of all time. He’s a great guy, and anybody in wrestling you talk to will say the same. But it means even more when it’s a guy who’s achieved that level of success, who’s achieved the kind of milestones that he’s had. For him to still be around now and to still be just as incredible in the ring as he’s ever been, and to still be as humble. … I think that what has drawn me to him is he’s so humble, even though he would have any and all reasons not to be.”

“When I heard he was coming back to WWE [in 2018], I was so pumped at the prospect of working with him, the prospect of being around him and just getting to learn. It’s not like I’m sitting under the learning tree. I just watch him, the kind of person he is, and I learn because that’s the kind of legacy I want to leave behind in wrestling. His son is now getting involved and it’s been great to see his son around. He’s everything a wrestling veteran should be.”
