In the match, Owens truly gave it his all. He came very close to claiming the gold as he almost escaped the cage. However, Reigns and his disciple, Uso, conspired once again to secure the win.

After the match, Kevin Owens posted an emotional message saying, “I gave it my all at TLC, gave it my all in the cage, and I will keep doing so until there’s nothing left.

Fight hard enough for long enough and something good has to happen. Right now, I’m right where I belong and I couldn’t be happier.”

He accompanied the post with a picture of his lovely family.

Kevin Owens wanted the title for many reasons

The title match on SmackDown kicked off the show, and both men gave it there all. Owens previously held the title at its very infancy. However, he recently revealed that he never enjoyed the reign.

“I was so worried about trying to make it great, which you know, is a good worry to have. It’s a worry anybody should have. I think it was also a curse because I just couldn’t keep things in perspective”

“But you know, if you’re passionate about what you do, you kind of can’t help but care too much, I think. I don’t think that’s always a bad thing. It’s not always a good thing either.”

Tonight on SmackDown, as Kevin Owens was on the verge of escaping the cage, Jey Uso rushed in and handcuffed Owens to the cage door. Although Owens’ body was out of the door, as long as his legs didn’t touch the floor, he could not be declared the winner.
