Kevin Owens has made arguably one of the biggest impacts ever since debuting on the NXT brand of WWE on May 18, 2015.
With one year behind him, a Reddit user by the handle of /u/bootybootybootyrocki has compiled a fascinating statistic for fans of the Prizefighter to gawk over.
Other than the Undertaker, Kevin Owens just became the only wrestler in the history of the company — at least on the active/part-time roster — to appear on every pay-per-view in the first year of his debut.
But while Taker did so first, the Deadman’s accomplishment is not quite as impressive as that of Kevin Owens’ for one simple reason.
Undertaker debuted in 1990 when the WWE was only holding four pay-per-views a year (five in 1991). Taking that into consideration and comparing it to the now monthly format, Kevin Owens is actually the first wrestler to do it in the current environment.
So while he may not be holding the World Heavyweight Championship as many fans would like to see, his paychecks have likely been the best in his career.
In fact, The-Net-Worth reports that when signed to the NXT brand, he was earning $8,000 per month, but that quickly went up when he made his debut on the main brand and began his historic PPV run.
More from the Redditor.
“With Kevin Owens’ match at Extreme Rules, he becomes only the second wrestler currently in WWE to have had a match on every single PPV main card that occurred in his/her first year on the main roster. The first was The Undertaker.
“[Furthermore,] If she wrestles at MITB, Charlotte will become the 3rd wrestler from the current roster to do so.
