That’s one way to tear best friends apart. A lot of the things can ruin a good friendship: money, pursing the same woman/man, changing worldviews or WWE title shots. Canadian best friends forever, Kevin Owens and Sami Zayn have one of the purest relationships going in the WWE.
Tonight (Jan. 30) on SmackDown, Daniel Bryan threw all of it away in the name of a WWE World title shot. After Owens and Zayn continued their protest of their Royal Rumble loss, the SmackDown GM gave them a simple solution; fight for a title match with AJ Styles.
Bryan booked Kevin Owens and Sami Zayn into a number one contender’s match for next week on SmackDown. The winner of Owens vs. Zayn will challenge Styles at Fastlane.

Is this the straw that breaks the back of Owens and Zayn’s spectacular bond?
Fastlane goes down on Sunday March 11th from the Nationwide Arena in Columbus, Ohio.
