The dynamic duo of Kevin Owens and Sami Zayn has become a prominent attraction in today's WWE universe. Their intriguing "will they, won't they" narrative amid the ongoing Bloodline saga has significantly boosted their popularity.
Their exceptional rapport has now been acknowledged by one of the most celebrated tag team wrestlers in history, Matt Hardy. In a recent episode of "The Extreme Life of Matt Hardy," he effusively praised the tandem. Hardy referred to their chemistry as "electric" and conveyed his belief that it resonates powerfully enough to permeate the screen.
"Their kinship is palpable, even through a TV screen," Hardy shared. "They seem to understand each other intuitively, knowing what the other is about to do. This amazing chemistry reflects their lifelong companionship."
Hardy Links Owens-Zayn to Legends
Hardy drew comparisons between Owens-Zayn and iconic tag teams of yesteryears, particularly likening them to his formidable competitors, Edge and Christian.
He noted, "There's a definite resemblance between Sami and Kevin and Edge and Christian. Much like a brotherhood, their bond is key in this business." The legendary wrestler underscored the significance of having a trustworthy companion in the demanding world of professional wrestling.
"Having someone loyal by your side, someone who always has your best interest at heart, is crucial when trying to ascend in a major promotion," Hardy stated. "The journey Kevin Steen and Sami Zayn have embarked on together, enjoying every step, is commendable." Finally, Hardy attributed a significant component of Owens and Zayn's success to their relatability, something he believes contributed significantly to his success with his brother Jeff.
"The Hardy Boys were seen as different, not as towering or monstrous, but as relatable individuals with a unique style," he reflected. "Just like us, Kevin and Sami seem accessible and genuine. They are not these chiseled, unattainable figures.
They feel real, which is why people connect with them." The tag team champions could hardly wish for a more significant endorsement than the one they've received from Matt Hardy. It's a testament to their hard work, exceptional camaraderie, and undeniable relatability.
