Shane McMahon announced in the closing segment of Smackdown Live that Sami Zayn vs. Kevin Owens would happen at Wrestlemania 34 before the two on-again, off-again frenemies mercilessly attacked him.
The match announcement and vicious attack came after Shane stated tonight would be his last appearance as he was taking a leave of absence from his storyline duties as Smackdown Commissioner.
The singles bout, if it sticks, would mean that Zayn and Owens face off in a singles bout on WWE’s biggest stage of the year. Their rivalry (and at times, tag team) has risen from the Montreal independent wrestling scene to independent events across the world to Ring of Honor and WWE. A singles bout at Wrestlemania would be a great chapter in their storied feud.
Cedric Alexander punched his ticket to a Cruiserweight title match at WrestleMania. He defeated Roddy Strong to earn the title match for the vacant title. His opponent will be announced next week, after the Mustafa Ali and Drew Gulak match.
This Owens, Zayn and Shane storyline has now reached its peak. After the brutal assault it’s obvious two things will happen. Shane will be taking on Zayn and Owens in some capacity and the match will be made by Daniel Bryan. The question will be, if Bryan turns on Zayn and Owens telling them what they did was heinous and they decide to attack Bryan. Opening the door for the much antipated return of one of the most beloved characters in history. Two other options are that Shane has another partner or its a triple threat match between Shane, Owens and Zayn. Sign me up for Bryan teaming with Shane, as I predicted back in November.
