If you’ve been following along for a while, you’ll know that pretty much as long as he’s been in WWE, Kevin Owens has been lobbying to face Brock Lesnar at WrestleMania. It came close to happening this year, but then Goldberg. But Owens has had his match against Lesnar now, losing in around three minutes at a Madison Square Garden show. It seems like the dream of Owens vs. Lesnar at a WrestleMania may be dead, but Owens has moved onto other goals.
Owens still believes he’ll main event WrestleMania one day (and you really have to believe that, or else you’ll never get there). So if he no longer has visions of Brock Lesnar F5ing in his head, who does he most want to face in that hypothetical main event? Well, you’ve probably already guessed one of his choices.
In an interview with The Press of Atlantic City, Owens was asked who he feels would be the “perfect” main event opponent for the biggest show of the year.
I feel like Sami Zayn. It would be such a great chapter to add to our story. We’ve been at each other’s throats and by each other’s sides simultaneously the last 15 years. It would be great to do something with him.
And also Finn Balor, who is my best friend. We got to the WWE the exact same time and didn’t know each other before hand. We had a bit of contact here and there before because we knew we both would spend time there. We bonded over that. Once we got to Orlando we’ve became very close quickly and getting to main event with him would be incredible. It would be another incredible chapter to our story. We both kind of dove in to uncharted territories, him from Japan and me from other places. We both did well for ourselves. To get to achieve that was very special.
Yeah, I think fans can definitely get behind both of those. The “last match ever” joke about Zayn-Owens matches is well-worn ground at this point, but I don’t believe anyone would object if these two got a chance to give the rivalry one last go-round on the biggest possible stage. Maybe a ladder match for a world title? A boy can dream.
