Following SmackDown, Owens appeared on Talking Smack, with Reigns’ associate Paul Heyman. On SmackDown, Paul Heyman called Owens a “masochist” before correcting himself and calling him a “martyr.” Heyman had said back that Owens will sacrifice and do everything necessary for the title.

In the after show, Kevin Owens appeared and shook Heyman’s hand. However, he said, “Do me a favor. After I beat (Roman Reigns)
on Sunday, and I take the Universal Title, you have my number. Call me, then we can talk.”

Before Owens shook hands with Heyman, he made sure everyone knew what was on his mind. ‘KO said, “After tonight as important as winning Universal title back to me, beating… BEATING Roman Reigns is even more important.”

KO stopped Heyman and said he had no time for his rebuttals. He added that he did not have the interest, nor the patience, to listen to Heyman. If he tried to speak, Owens would knock his teeth out.

On SmackDown, Owens called Reigns a coward and a hypocrite for using the members of his family for his gain. He asked his family to not watch the upcoming TLC because of what he will do to ‘The Tribal Chief’.

Even after the beat down, Owens rose from the heap of the tables and vowed that he would take the title on Sunday or “die trying.”
