Kevin Owens – “No One Has Done Better” Than Sami Zayn & The Usos In The Last Year

Kevin Owens had a lot of good things to say about his WrestleMania 39 tag team partner and his opponents while talking about his upcoming match.

It is fair to say that one of the most anticipated matches at WrestleMania 39 will see The Usos defend the Undisputed WWE Tag Team Titles against Sami Zayn & Kevin Owens. In terms of storyline, they have built this rivalry up since last summer when Zayn was an ally of Usos until this year’s Royal Rumble when The Bloodline turned on Zayn.

The reason that The Bloodline turned on Zayn is that Sami refused to continue the attack on Kevin Owens at the Royal Rumble when KO was handcuffed to the ropes. Since Zayn has been best friends with Owens for most of the last 20 years since they started in pro wrestling together, he didn’t want to attack Owens more.

What made the story so great also is that Jey Usos was reluctant to turn on his friend Sami, until a few weeks ago when Jey did a cheap attack after Jey looked like he was on Sami’s side. All of this would eventually lead to Owens accepting Zayn as an ally again.

All of this has led to Kevin Owens & Sami Zayn challenging The Usos for the Undisputed WWE Tag Team Titles at WrestleMania 39. Jimmy Usos felt like Owens & Zayn didn’t deserve a title shot while Jey Uso theorized that it would give The Usos a chance to solve their “Kevin & Sami problem.”

In an interview with TVA Sports, Kevin Owens talked about his WrestleMania history while adding that he doesn’t know how he’ll be able to top this match.

“In my head, it was going to be hard to beat Sami and me (at WrestleMania 37) just because of the history we had. I thought it would probably be the biggest WrestleMania in terms of emotions and nostalgia. And yet, the year after, look what happens! It’s another moment at the same level.”

“The last three WrestleMania are unimaginable. You go back 10 years in time and no one would have thought that we would have had a match against each other at Mania. You go back 20 years in time and nobody would have thought that Kevin Steen would have fought against Stone Cold.”

As he continued, Kevin Owens claimed that his tag team match with Zayn against The Usos is the most anticipated match at WrestleMania 39, aside from Roman Reigns facing Cody Rhodes.

“When we started in WWE, there was a small hope that we would fight as a team, maybe even at WrestleMania. Then we did it in 2018 against Shane McMahon and Daniel Bryan. Except this time it’s for the Tag Team Championship, in the biggest WWE story in six months. Apart from the Roman vs. Cody match, we are the most anticipated match and I say that with all humility, but also with 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 because of the work the Usos and Sami have done to get to where we are. No one has done a better job in the last year than these three guys. Again, I don’t see how I’m going to be able to beat that next year.”

Earlier on Thursday, WWE confirmed that The Usos match against Owens & Zayn will take place this Saturday, April 1st at WrestleMania 39.
