Kevin Owens and Sami Zayn’s careers have been intertwined for more than a decade now, which goes back to their days in ROH and PWG together. The two are now the Undisputed Tag Team Champions and with that, they continue to defend their titles with honor. Now it appears Owens was worried about living up to The Usos after their title win.

Sami Zayn and Kevin Owens challenged The Usos for the Undisputed WWE Tag Team Championships at WrestleMania 39. It was truly an emotional bout from start to finish. In the end, Owens and Zayn won the match and became the new champions.

After winning the titles, Kevin Owens and Sami Zayn have defended them valiantly, as they have been putting on solid matches consistently. That said, The Usos remain the longest-reigning Tag Team Champions in WWE history.

While speaking to Alex McCarthy for the Daily Mail, Kevin Owens admitted he was “concerned” about trying to follow the standard The Usos set while they were the tag team champions.


“One of the things that I was concerned about before winning them was when we did get them, I want to live up The Usos’ title reign. Because they did a lot for these titles. They worked very hard to get them to a point where they could main event WrestleMania and a lot of credit goes to them for that, So honestly, so far in our run, I don’t feel like we’re anywhere near that.

I really want to work very hard so that when it’s all said and done with these titles and somebody else takes them from us, I want the run to be talked about in the same vein as The Usos. That’s the challenge in itself because they’ve been really incredible.

Those guys… If anything, now, they’re getting their flowers. But, in my opinion, they’ve been underappreciated for a long time. So that was a big concern for me, I just want to live up to work they’ve done and we’re obviously working our heart out to make sure that happens.

That’s the main concern for us; make sure these titles stay at the forefront of the stories and being as important as they have been for the past few months.”

We will have to wait and see how Kevin Owens and Sami Zayn will continue to be booked in the coming weeks. After all, they are currently doing great as the tag team champions.
