In a recent interview with Pat Laprade of TVA Sports, WWE superstar Kevin Owens shared his thoughts on past WrestleMania moments, his emotional match with Sami Zayn at WrestleMania 37, and the anticipation surrounding his upcoming WrestleMania 39 tag team match against The Usos.
Owens expressed that the singles match with Zayn at WrestleMania 37 was hard to top emotionally, given their long history together. He stated, "In my head, it would be hard to beat Sami and me just because of our history. I thought it would probably be the biggest WrestleMania in terms of emotions and nostalgia." However, Owens was also proud to have fought against WWE legend Stone Cold Steve Austin at the event, a match that made it into WWE's "Top 10" WrestleMania moments.
Owens & Zayn's WrestleMania Hopes
Regarding his longtime friend and rival Zayn, Owens revealed they had always harbored a small hope of teaming up in WWE, potentially at a WrestleMania event. Their first opportunity came in 2018 when they faced Shane McMahon and Daniel Bryan.
This year, Owens and Zayn will be challenging The Usos for the Tag Team Championship at WrestleMania 39, a match that Owens believes is highly anticipated and on par with the main event between Roman Reigns and Cody Rhodes.
Owens credited the captivating storyline and the exceptional work of The Usos and Sami Zayn for making their upcoming match so eagerly awaited. "Apart from the Roman vs. Cody match, we are the most anticipated match, and I say that with humility and confidence.
There are probably people who are more looking forward to our match than the one between Roman and Cody because of the story and the work The Usos and Sami have done to get to where we are," he explained. The WWE superstar expressed his admiration for the hard work and dedication of Zayn and The Usos in the past year, acknowledging that it would be difficult to surpass this year's WrestleMania experience.
As Owens and Zayn prepare to face The Usos on night one of WrestleMania 39, fans can look forward to an electrifying match built upon a compelling story and the undeniable chemistry between these talented wrestlers.
