Kevin Owens has shared his honest thoughts on Sami Zayn’s recent work, stating that Zayn is now getting the credit he deserves.
There are three things that are certain in live: death, taxes, and Kevin Owens facing off against Sami Zayn.
The duo’s latest feud has been over the Bloodline faction, with Owens wanting to destroy Roman Reigns, and Zayn attempting to prove himself to the Tribal Chief.
After clashing in the 5-on-5 WarGames bout at Survivor Series, Zayn and Owens are preparing to share the ring once again on the December 30 edition of SmackDown.
On the show, Owens will team with John Cena to face off against Zayn and Roman Reigns.
In an interview on Cheap Heat with Peter Rosenberg, Owens argued that Sami Zayn has been a top performer for at least a decade.
Liking the fact that Zayn’s popularity is at an all time high, Owens said:
“He’s always been unbelievable, definitely one of the best in the world, to me, in the last decade at least if not longer, but for some reason, he was never really — again, talk about the people who don’t get the credit they deserve, he was one of those guys.
“And now, people are really like taking notice. But to me, even if you go back a few months before this stuff with Bloodline, you go back to his match with Johnny Knoxville, the match he had at Wrestlemania with those guys, that was all him, all him. And that was pretty incredible.
“I think several members of our roster could’ve done a pretty good job at it. I don’t think anybody, anybody, could’ve done it like he did.
“It is great to see him get the credit he deserves and the respect from our audience, and the respect from the people in charge. It’s been a great thing to see for sure.”
The December 30 edition of SmackDown will be the last episode of WWE TV of 2022.
