Kevin Owens has teasingly made fun of his friend Sami Zayn following his Intercontinental Championship win at Elimination Chamber.
Sami Zayn teamed up with Shinsuke Nakamura and Cesaro in a 3-on-1 handicap match for the Intercontinental Championship against Braun Strowman at Elimination Chamber.
Zayn picked up the pinfall victory on Strowman for his team in the match, meaning he has become the new Intercontinental Champion, his first title since leaving NXT.
Zayn is finally being recognised for being one of the best talkers in WWE as well as a fantastic in-ring worker, and no one could be prouder of him than one of his best friends, Kevin Owens.
However, even The Prizefighter found a way to make fun of the new Intercontinental Champion following his successful night.
Owens said on Twitter: “You can complain all you want about how he won it or his attitude but Sami being Intercontinental Champion is long overdue.
“The fact that he won it after growing hair that rivals Wayne Gretzky’s in his heyday makes it worth the wait though. I’m very proud of you, @SamiZayn.”
Zayn reacted on Twitter to his Intercontinental Championship win at Elimination Chamber as well.
The Prizefighter didn’t have a match at Elimination Chamber, but he did make himself a distraction in the Raw Tag Team Championship match of The Street Profits vs Seth Rollins and Murphy.
Owens’ distraction was enough to help The Street Profits retain the Raw Tag Team titles, then, for good measure, he delivered a Stunner to Rollins in the middle of the ring after the match.
It looks like Owens will be having a match with Rollins at WrestleMania. As for Zayn, now he’s Intercontinental Champion, his direction is a little less clear.
While we’ll likely receive an answer to this question this week on SmackDown, options for the new Intercontinental Champion at WrestleMania could be a rematch with Strowman, or possibly face off with Nakamura and Cesaro as well.
There are also plenty of other superstars on the SmackDown roster that could find themselves in the Intercontinental title picture by the time this year’s Showcase of Immortals takes place as well.
