Oh no, not like this. A mere hour after the pair were booked into a number one contender’s match for the WWE World championship, Kevin Owens and Sami Zayn’s friendship began to leak.
In the main event of tonight’s (Jan. 30) SmackDown Live, bickered their way through a tag match versus AJ Styles and Rumble winner Shinsuke Nakamura.
The best friends didn’t just bicker, they argued, snapped, talked smack and walked out on each other. Somehow the duo managed to bring up every slight from the past three months and throw it back in the face of the other man, all in the span of a single tag match.
Styles and Nakamuara capitalized on the situation, isolating Owens as Zayn walked out on the match, not once but twice.
The official end for Kevin Owens would come after AJ Styles hit him with a Pele kick and Shinsuke Nakamura dropped him with a Kinshasa for the pinfall.
It looks Sami Zayn and Kevin Owens are once again no longer friends or on speaking terms. Next week on SmackDown the he former friends battle for the right to face Styles at Fastlane.
Who wins next week, Owens or Zayn?
