Name: Kevin Steen
Born: May 7, 1984
Occupation: Professional wrestler
Kevin Owens was born on May 7, 1984 in Saint-Jean-sur-Richelieu, Quebec, Canada. Raised in Marieville, Quebec, Kevin’s first language is French.
Kevin didn’t speak much English when he was young, but he taught himself the language as a teenager by watching episodes of “Monday Night Raw” and aping the promos from the wrestlers and commentary from the likes of Jim Ross and Vince McMahon. Kevin grew up playing a lot of sports, including hockey and baseball. He didn’t develop an interest in professional wrestling until he watched WrestleMania XI.
He is married to Karina, and they have two children: Owen, who is named after legendary wrestler Owen Hart, and Elodie Leila.
Kevin decided to venture into pro-wrestling at the age of 14 when he began to train with Serge Jodoin, a Quebec-based wrestler. A year later, he started to train with Jacque Rougeau and Terry Taylor. At the age of 16, Kevin already had his very first match. After competing with Rougeau’s promotion until he was 20 years old, he began to wrestle for other promotions.
From 2004 to 2014, Kevin has competed for Combat Zone Wrestling (CZW), Pro Wrestling Guerrilla, Ring of Honor (ROH) and Wrestling’s Worst Nightmare. It wasn’t until the summer of 2014 that Kevin was finally signed by World Wrestling Entertainment (WWE). He was sent to the company’s developmental system, NXT. Kevin made his NXT debut in November of that year and would soon win the NXT World Title. A few months later, Kevin made his main roster debut and defeated John Cena in his very first match. He would go on to win the Intercontinental Championship two times and compete at WrestleMania XXXII in a ladder match.
We estimate that Kevin Owens’s net worth is $10 million (2016).
So how much is $10 million really?
$10 million can buy you 20,000 replica WWE championship belts, including the World Heavyweight Championship, the Intercontinental Championship and the NXT World Championship. $10 million can also buy you one front-row ticket to every single Monday Night, SmackDown! and WWE pay-per-view (except WrestleMania) for a decade.
