Kevin Owens, the renowned WWE Superstar, recently took a moment to reflect on his headlining performances at WrestleMania 38 and 39, comparing the two monumental matches. Last year, Owens found himself in the ring with none other than the legendary Stone Cold Steve Austin, who had returned to wrestling after a nearly two-decade absence.
In an unforgettable clash on the Grandest Stage of Them All, Owens and his partner, Sami Zayn, defeated The Usos to claim the Undisputed WWE Tag Team Championship. During a candid interview with Spencer Love of Love Wrestling, Owens struggled to put into words the significance of both encounters.
He humbly admitted, "I hate doing this because it sounds like I'm trying to get out of it easily, but there's really no words to describe either experience." Owens further elaborated, acknowledging the surreal nature of being involved in such momentous events and realizing the extraordinary circumstances that unfolded on both occasions.
His gratitude for those opportunities was evident in his heartfelt words.
Owens Reflects: WrestleMania 38 Outshines 39
When asked to compare the two main-event matches, Owens confessed that his clash with Steve Austin at WrestleMania 38 held a special place in his heart, just edging out the WrestleMania 39 encounter.
Wrestling the iconic Stone Cold 19 years after his last match in a WrestleMania main event was a pinch-yourself moment that left a lasting impression on Owens. The magnitude of sharing the ring with a legend of that caliber is something he continues to cherish and appreciate.
While both WrestleMania main events were undeniably exceptional, Owens emphasized the deep sense of gratitude he feels for being part of those incredible moments. He acknowledged his fortune in getting to experience these unique opportunities and recognized how they will undoubtedly shape his memories when he eventually hangs up his boots.
In the present, Owens, alongside his trusted partner Sami Zayn, is set to defend their hard-earned Undisputed WWE Tag Team Championship against the formidable duo of Pretty Deadly on the upcoming episode of SmackDown this Friday night.
As Owens continues to add new chapters to his storied career, he remains grateful for the unforgettable experiences he has already lived through, leaving an indelible mark on the WWE Universe.
