Kevin Owens and Sami Zayn left the entire WWE universe in awe when they defeated the Usos at WrestleMania 39. The victory was the result of a weeks of build-up which first saw Zayn being a associate member of the Bloodline and then refusing their ways to go against them and rekindling friendship with Owens, who already was in a heated feud with Roman Reigns. Owens and Zayn vs The Usos proved to be an emotional rollercoaster for the fans, and tears also rolled down from the eyes of several fanatics when they the babyfaces won the contest. However, following that high, the Canadian duo lost popularity and ultimately they lost their title after a few months.

"Me and Sami worked our a**es off to give main events on RAW every week that had people going wild and we succeeded, and I'm not one to toot my own horn, I really am not, but I think Sami and I did a lot of special things as champions that went under the radar because they weren't on pay-per-views," Owens said. "They weren't under the big bright lights. They were usually on RAW."
