Kevin Owens recently lost the United States Championship to AJ Styles at Madison Square Garden, but he’ll get his chance to win the belt back when he challenges Styles at Battleground on Sunday. Owens won the belt for the first time when he defeated Chris Jericho at WrestleMania 33 in one of the more memorable matches from the event.

Kevin has competed at WrestleMania twice now, and he hopes to someday wrestle in the main event. If he ever does get to the main event, he already has two opponents in mind, and he recently told that Sami Zayn is one of them.

“I feel like Sami Zayn. It would be such a great chapter to add to our story. We’ve been at each other’s throats and by each other’s sides simultaneously the last 15 years. It would be great to do something with him.”

In regards to his second choice, Kevin Owens named Raw star and former NXT Champion Finn Balor.

“And also Finn Balor, who is my best friend. We got to the WWE the exact same time and didn’t know each other before hand. We had a bit of contact here and there before because we knew we both would spend time there. We bonded over that. Once we got to Orlando we’ve became very close quickly and getting to main event with him would be incredible. It would be another incredible chapter to our story. We both kind of dove in to uncharted territories, him from Japan and me from other places. We both did well for ourselves. To get to achieve that was very special.”
