Jul 1, 2015 - by Marc Middleton

– Rolling Stone has announced their WWE “Best of the Rest of the Half-Year” awards at this link. They named NXT Champion Kevin Owens as the WWE Wrestler of the Year, so far. They wrote:

“In a matter of months, the father of two from Marieville, Quebec has not only stared down his potential but surpassed it, becoming a lynchpin of two promotions and building a character inspired by everything it took to get him to this point. Love him or hate him, you can’t deny his impact on the first six months of 2015 – or wonder how high he’ll climb by year’s end. It’s wrestling, folks. It’s Kevin Owens.”
