Kevin Owens and Sami Zayn are no strangers to each other.

They've had countless matches against each other across multiple promotions, competing in a variety of match types.

But which match sticks out the most for Owens?

"Battleground is a clear favorite for me because it's underrated, but also really appreciated," Owens told Robbie Fox on My Mom's Basement. "People will go back, I get it every week, they'll watch the match and go, 'I forgot how good that match was.' The reason it's not hailed as one of the best matches in WWE is simply because, the day after it was done, everybody just moved on. If two other people had the same match, depending on who they were, commentators would be talking like, 'a match for the ages.' We didn't get that kind of treatment, but it's kinda cool because we get people talking like, 'How does this match not get talked about more?' I'm not the kind of guy who comes through the curtain after a match, whether I did good or bad, who will let it show, but I couldn't help it. When I got through the curtain, I just screamed several expletives because I was so pumped. Even Vince was standing up and pumped himself."

Zayn and Owens battled at WWE Battleground 2016 with Zayn picking up the victory.

Owens also mentioned the ladder match the two had in 2011 at PWG Steen Wolf for the PWG World Title. That match was also won by Zayn.

Owens and Zayn will meet once more at night two of WWE WrestleMania 37. You can view the current lineup for the event by clicking here.
