Owens says if she knew or heard that he missed a show because of her, she would be pissed. And he is more serious than he has ever been, tomorrow, win, lose or draw, all he cares about is that he does what is mom has wanted him to do for the last four years and that is not just kick the living hell out of The Bloodline but to beat their asses worse than ever before.
