WWE Universal Champion Kevin Owen has revealed the three superstars he is hoping to defend his title against in the future.

Owens became the second ever Universal Champion on Monday Night Raw when he overcame Big Cass, Roman Reigns, and Seth Rollins in a fatal 4-way match.

The match was set up by general manager Mick Foley after Finn Balor had to relinquish the title due to shoulder injury.

After Owens eliminated Big Cass, it came down to him and the former Shield brothers, but with the help of Triple H, it was Owens who prevailed.

Triple H hit Reigns and Rollins with a pedigree, allowing Owens to pick up the win and become the new Universal Champion, much to the surprise of Stephanie McMahon, Foley, the fans, and the champ himself.

It has since been announced that he will defend his title at Clash of Champions, Raw's first official pay-per-view following the brand split, and that title defence will be against Rollins.

However, speaking in an interview with Ryan Rider of Main Event Radio, Owens has revealed the three superstars he is hoping to have a title match against.

When asked the questions, the 32-year-old immediately named the former champion Balor, and then added Rollins to the list, along with long-term friend, turned enemy, Sami Zayn.

Owens believes Balor deserves a title shot due to the fact he had to hand over the title, whilst he admitted that Rollins won't go away anytime soon.

However, he added Zayn to the list as he believes that would be the 'logical' choice.

Owens said: “Finn Balor is at the top of the list considering that he won it and never got to defend it.

"Seth [Rollins] obviously is probably going to come knocking. A logical choice will probably be Sami Zayn.

"I feel like we have WrestleMania caliber matches every time we step in the ring with each other.. But I’m open to anybody who wants a shot.”
