Before they were WWE stars: Kevin Owens (Kevin Steen) and Sami Zayn

One of the great thing about being a photographer is that you get to photograph « normal people » who then become famous. You slowly build an archive of important people, you are a witness (and a guardian) of history.

I already recalled how I first photographed P.K Subban in his junior rookie years

Do you know Kevin Steen? It is the real name of WWE superstar Kevin Owens, the current the WWE Universal champion belt, the world most important title any wrestler can hold.

In 2004/2005, he was just a kid. Every month, he would make the trip to Quebec City for the EWR wrestling show. He wrestled his first big names there: Steve Corino, A.J.
