In an epic and unforgettable night, a friendship emerged victorious over a dominant bloodline at WrestleMania 39 Night One. For the first time in history, the main event was a WWE Tag Team Championship match, featuring The Usos defending their record-breaking reign against the tenacious duo of Sami Zayn and Kevin Owens.
The thrilling encounter kept fans on the edge of their seats as they witnessed the culmination of an incredible journey. The grueling match saw both teams push each other to their limits as Zayn and Owens demonstrated their incredible chemistry and unbreakable bond.
Owens delivered a devastating knockout to Jimmy Uso, while Zayn followed up with a final Helluva Kick on Jey Uso, sealing their victory with a three-count. This win marks the first time Zayn and Owens have held the WWE Tag Team Championship, individually and as a team.
Owens & Zayn's Friendship Triumphs
This victory is particularly significant for Kevin Owens, who ended a six-year championship drought despite headlining WrestleMania for the second consecutive year. The duo had previously held the PWG and Ring of Honor tag team titles, but this is their first taste of WWE gold together.
Their on-and-off friendship has been well-documented, including their memorable match at WrestleMania 34, where they faced off against Daniel Bryan and Shane McMahon. For The Usos, the loss marks the end of an impressive era.
They became the first Undisputed "Raw" and "SmackDown" Tag Team Champions in May 2022 after initially winning the "SmackDown" title in July 2021. Their historic reign lasted 622 days, surpassing The New Day's record and cementing their legacy as the longest-reigning tag team champions in WWE history.
The Usos, who have held the tag team titles eight times since 2014, now find themselves without championship gold for the first time in nearly two years. WrestleMania 39 Night One will be remembered as a night when friendship conquered all, as the unstoppable force of Sami Zayn and Kevin Owens dethroned The Usos to claim the WWE Tag Team Championship.
The emotional rollercoaster of their journey to the top has been one for the ages, and their victory in the main event of WrestleMania cements their place in WWE history. Fans eagerly await the next chapter in their story as Zayn and Owens embark on their reign as the new WWE Tag Team Champions.
