– Patric Laprade of TVA Sports recently interviewed WWE Superstar Kevin Owens, who discussed his upcoming WrestleMania 37 match against Sami Zayn, which will feature YouTuber Logan Paul as Zayn’s guest. Below are some highlights (translation via Google Translate).
Owens on pitching the feud with Sami Zayn last September: In September, I proposed the idea to Vince McMahon, and then I didn’t hear about it again. It’s the WWE executives who have come back to us with this lately. It was inevitable and logical. As our careers have developed, a one-on-one match at WrestleMania is like the crowning of our career. It hadn’t struck me yet before I saw the graphic that formalized our match. Having a one-on-one match at WrestleMania is rarer, more and more difficult. So for us it’s a special accomplishment. So doing it together means more to us. It’s a big opportunity, there is no doubt about it.”
On Logan Paul being Zayn’s guest for WrestleMania 37: “I don’t think it’s going to take anything away from our match. It adds something to our match. We had so many, that it will be a way to differentiate it, to have more eyes on the match. But I’m not worried at all and I’m sure that at the end of the match people will be happy. We are also always careful not to play the same games. So we are sure that the match will deliver. I think the fans are really excited for our match and it makes me feel really good!”
