Kevin Owens: No One Has Done A Better Job In The Last Year Than Sami Zayn And The Usos

Kevin Owens headlined night one of WrestleMania 38, taking on "Stone Cold" Steve Austin in Austin's first match in nearly two decades.

Owens is once again in a prominent position for WrestleMania 39, teaming with Sami Zayn to challenge The Usos (Jimmy & Jey Uso) for the Undisputed WWE Tag Team Championships.

Speaking to Pat Laprade of TVA Sports, Owens reflected on past WrestleMania events and looked ahead to WrestleMania 39.

"In my head, it was going to be hard to beat Sami and me (at WrestleMania 37) just because of the history we had," he said. "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."

He continued, “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."

Zayn connected with The Bloodline just after WrestleMania 38, looking to restore his good name after losing to Johnny Knoxville. Owens became a more prominent part of the storyline heading into Survivor Series 2022 and the WarGames bout.
