Kevin Owens Dedicates Night Of Champions Title Match To Unlikely WWE Duo

Sami Zayn & Kevin Owens celebrate at WrestleMania 39

Kevin Owens and Sami Zayn are set to defend their Undisputed WWE Tag Team Championship against Roman Reigns and Solo Sikoa at Night of Champions, and he claims their victory will be dedicated to some longtime foes.

On the May 22nd episode of Raw, Paul Heyman opened the show to declare he had nothing to do with Brock Lesnar’s attack on Cody Rhodes before turning his attention to the tag team title match at Night of Champions on May 27th. He insisted that Reigns and Sikoa would defeat Owens and Zayn, bringing the tag champions out to confront the Wise Man, causing him to exit the ring quickly.

After Zayn said the team is feeling good going into their title defense, Owens turned his attention to the fact that Reigns and Sikoa wanted to dedicate their match to WWE Hall of Famers Afa and Sika. Owens had a dedication of his own, saying:

“Tonight I’d like to officially dedicate our victory at Night of Champions over Solo and Roman Reigns to the true pillars of The Bloodline, Jimmy and Jey Uso.”

The tongue-in-cheek dedication, no doubt an attempt by Owens to get under Reigns’ skin amidst tension in The Bloodline, may come as somewhat of a surprise as the teams are embroiled in a bitter rivalry.

Owens and Zayn have been at odds with The Bloodline for months, and in the main event of night one of WrestleMania 39, they were able to unseat The Usos, ending their record-breaking title reign and capturing tag team gold for the first time in WWE. The teams faced off in a rematch on the April 28th episode of SmackDown, and once again Owens and Zayn were able to defeat the record-setting tag team to retain their titles.
