Kevin Owens & Sami Zayn vs. The Usos headlined night one of WrestleMania 39, marking the first time a tag team match had headlined WrestleMania since WrestleMania 1 and the first time ever a Tag Team Title bout had headlined the event.
Owens admits he was a small player in the Bloodline saga as he feuded with Roman Reigns, Solo Sikoa, the Usos (Jimmy Uso & Jey Uso), and Zayn during the latter part of 2022 and into 2023.
"There was talk at one point before WrestleMania, 'who is going to be the main event? Is it going to be Charlotte [Charlotte Flair] and Rhea [Rhea Ripley] or is it the Tag team Title match?' I obviously wanted it to be us because I felt like our story deserved it, 100%. As far as matches go, of course that match could main event, no problem. Story wise, to me there is no doubt it should have been us. I really wanted to main event, not for me, I got to do it with Steve [Steve Austin at WrestleMania 38]. Sami and the Usos deserved that. I'm so glad it worked out because they deserved it more than anybody," said Owens in an interview with Ariel Helwani of BT Sport.
Owens & Zayn were victorious in the bout winning the Undisputed WWE Tag Team Championships. Owens is currently sidelined with an injury and it is unknown when he will return to action.
