Kevin Owens will wrestle Sami Zayn in a singles match at WrestleMania 37.
While speaking with Pat Laprade of TVA Sports, the former Universal Champion noted that he pitched the idea of a Zayn feud to Vince McMahon in September of 2020. Company officials came back to him recently with the feud.
“In September, I proposed the idea to Vince McMahon, and then I didn’t hear about it again. It’s the WWE executives who have come back to us with this lately. It was inevitable and logical in the following. As our careers have developed, a one-on-one match at WrestleMania is like the crowning of our career.
It hadn’t struck me yet before I saw the graphic that formalized our match. Having a one-on-one match at WrestleMania is more and more rare, more and more difficult. So for us it’s a special accomplishment. So doing it together means more to us. It’s a big opportunity, there is no doubt about it.”
