Ever since he debuted on the main roster almost three years ago , Kevin Owens has played the role of the classic heel with much success.
Owens had an incredible start as he beat John Cena in his very first PPV match. His initial feud with Cena saw him gather a lot of momentum, as Owens quickly became a star in front of the WWE Universe.
KO then won the title in 2016, as the ‘Prizefighter’ became the WWE Universal champion for the first time in his career. KO and Chris Jericho then had a brilliant run, as the pair formed one of the most entertaining double acts in recent memory.
Owens eventually lost the title to Goldberg before facing his former best friend, Chris Jericho at last year’s Wrestlemania. Owens then beat Chris for the US title, and then switched brands to SmackDown shortly thereafter.
Owens and Shane McMahon had a heated rivalry in the middle of 2017, which eventually culminated in a Hell in a Cell match. Owens seemed down and out before his long term rival, Sami Zayn saved him and helped him pick up the win over Shane.
Sami Zayn and Kevin Owens then formed a dastardly duo, as the pair wrecked havoc on the SmackDown roster. But now it looks like that allegiance is coming to a close, with Zayn pinning Owens on last night’s episode of SmackDown.
Zayn made it very clear that he feels he has been under appreciated over the last few months, and will make sure he proves it to everyone on Fastlane why he is one of the best in the business today.
Owens and Zayn will most likely settle their score on the grandest stage of them all, as the two former best friends, turned enemies, turned friends will once again become bitter rivals at Wrestlemania.
