Recently, Kevin Owens admitted how he was disappointed by the fact that he’ll never be able to share a ring with The Game. K.O went ahead to name his dream competitors at WrestleMania. The list hints at some truly great matches.
In an interview with MackMania about Triple H, Owens mentioned the three wrestlers he wanted to face at the WrestleMania. One of those he accomplished last year when he faced his close friend Sami Zayn, and the other took place this year when he went head to head with Steve Austin.
“It sucks that he didn’t get to retire in the ring with him the way he should have. But he’s obviously making the best decision for himself and his family. So, nobody can, like that’s not a bad thing,” he said. “That’s a good thing. He’s done more for me than anyone’s ever done for my career.
“I could say that safely and I always wanted to get in the ring with him, I always wanted to wrestle him. I got to team with him a few times, which was awesome. Never got to be on the opposite side of the ring and you know, now I know I won’t get to.”
Other than these wrestlers, if KO could have his fantasy match at WrestleMania, it would certainly be with Triple H. The feeling is mutual as the two of them always believed that they would end up in the ring against each other. However, Owens is just glad to see that the Game is doing well.
“Besides those three answers, if I could’ve had a dream WrestleMania match it would’ve been with Triple H. So, you know, he and I talked about that,” he revealed. “And we always kind of assumed we’d get to have a match eventually, not necessarily at WrestleMania. So that part sucks. I’m just glad to hear he’s doing good and that’s the best decision for him and his family so it’s the right decision.”
Kevin Owens headlined the first night of this year’s WrestleMania with Stone Cold Steve Austin, featuring on an episode of “The KO Show.” The duo ended up having a ‘No Holds Barred’ match which saw the Texas Rattlesnake emerging as the victor.
