Kevin Owens was just one month removed from a WWE championship match at WWE Fastlane when he was surprisingly left off of WrestleMania 35.

The former Universal champion was happy for Kofi Kingston to get his long-awaited WrestleMania moment but was still heartbroken to be left out of plans for the show in any capacity.

Owens recently spoke with Robbie Fox of “My Mom’s Basement” about being left out of WrestleMania 35 but still being happy that Kingston was able to get his shining moment.

“It was really heartbreaking because I was supposed to be on WrestleMania 35,” Owens admitted.

“There was a storyline prepared and an idea. It went a different way for an extremely good reason, I couldn’t have agreed more and it was the right move, but at the same time I was like, ‘What am I going to do?’ They didn’t know where to put me. There were still several weeks until WrestleMania, ‘Well, let’s just make something up.’ It just didn’t happen. As it was getting closer to the show, there was more disbelief. ‘I’m really not going to be on WrestleMania?’ I thought, maybe that night — Alexa Bliss was the host, maybe I could do something with her like a Kevin Owens Show. At least I’d be there. I didn’t want to be in the Andre Battle Royal and I had talked to Vince about it and he told me he didn’t feel it was the right spot for me. Once he told me that, okay, fine. I still thought doing something on the show would’ve been fun. Just have me go in there and stun someone, for whatever reason. Do something with Alexa. For whatever reason, nothing was connecting with them.”

Owens would go on to feud with Kofi Kingston following WrestleMania 35 after the latter won the WWE championship during the event.
