With WrestleMania 40 in Philadelphia still eight months away, the anticipation is already building. Fresh off the success of headlining two WrestleManias back to back, Kevin Owens has revealed who he wants to face in next year’s event. Owens made his intentions clear during a recent appearance on Ariel Helwani Meets on TNT Sports.

Kevin Owens has had an illustrious journey to the pinnacle of WWE. His headline battles in WrestleMania 38 against Stone Cold Steve Austin in Dallas, and then his tag team clash alongside Sami Zayn against The Usos at WrestleMania 39 in Los Angeles for the Undisputed WWE Tag Team Championships, have cemented his status as a top player in the industry.

A Choice Between Friends and Story

Owens shared that he’s torn between two potential matchups for WrestleMania 40. On one hand, he has a strong desire to face Finn Balor, a good friend with whom he’s traveled the world. On the other hand, he recognizes the narrative potential of a clash with Sami Zayn.

Facing Finn Balor

So a part of me goes what would be the best story or whatever and then another part of me goes what would you enjoy doing the most,” Owens said during his interview. “And his name is Finn Balor. I’d love to work with Finn at WrestleMania so that we could say that’s something we got to do together.”

The Sami Zayn Story

But Owens also weighed the possibility of a storyline that could include Sami Zayn, with whom he has a complex and dramatic history. He added: “But if you go story-wise, it seems to me like Sami hasn’t truly accomplished what he was destined to do. And it seems to me like as good as it would be for him to beat Roman (Reigns) for that title, it’d be pretty great if it’d be the guy who stabbed him in the back a lot but I don’t know.”

No Betrayal in Sight

Owens was quick to clarify that any idea of him betraying Sami Zayn is not currently on the cards. The notion of a betrayal might make for an appealing storyline, but Owens wants everyone to know that it’s not going to happen.

Kevin Owens’ comments have added fuel to the fire of WrestleMania 40 anticipation. Whether it’s a friendly competition with Finn Balor or a complex storyline with Sami Zayn, the possibilities are exciting. Only time will tell which path will be chosen, but either option promises a thrilling match for wrestling fans around the world.

With WrestleMania 40 still far on the horizon, the speculation will undoubtedly continue to build, adding to the event’s mystique. Whatever happens, fans can rest assured that Kevin Owens will deliver a performance worthy of the grandest stage in professional wrestling.
