Kevin Owens and Sami Zayn threw down with The Usos in the main event of WrestleMania 39’s first night. This was a bit of a controversial decision for those who wanted to see Charlotte Flair and Rhea Ripley go on last, but The Game had a reason for this.

During the media conference following WrestleMania 39, Triple H was asked how he came to a decision about the main event match of WrestleMania 39’s first night. Triple H explained that it all came down to emotional storytelling, and that tag team match checked all the boxes.

“You know, it’s all about what is the most impactful, and as storylines played out heading into WrestleMania, to me, it was the most emotional and storyline driven match on the card. I felt like that needed to be, I think we all felt like that needed to be in that spot.”


“I’ve said this before when people say, ‘oh you put the women in the main event.’ We didn’t put the women in the main event, that’s the spot. That is the storyline that was putting it in that role. It’s not about giving it to them because they’re women, never once did it factor for me. You know, tag team championships have never been in that spot, it made history, I didn’t know this.”

“Whatever story has the most impact and is the most driven, that’s what needs to be in the spot, and in this case, it was the Usos and Kevin and Sami.”

We’ll have to see what’s next for The Usos after they lost the Undisputed Tag Team Titles. It seems that we will have to tune in to SmackDown next week to see how the never-ending WWE stories continue for the Bloodline. Odds are, Kevin Owens and Sami Zayn will have a lot of celebrating to do as well.
