That darn numbers game once again got to Owens, as Jey Uso cost him another chance to take the Universal title from Roman Reigns. And neither the deviousness which has marked his Intercontinental championship run nor the return of high-flying wrestling moves which were a hallmark of his babyface days helped Sami keep his belt.
Tough beats, for sure. But these guys are pros. They also have real lives that they don’t hesitate to work into their on-screen ones. At Christmastime, that meant babyface KO surrounding himself with what’s really important before tackling the next storyline challenge:
I gave it my all at TLC, gave it my all in the cage and I will keep doing so until there’s nothing left.— Kevin (@FightOwensFight) December 26, 2020
Fight hard enough for long enough and something good has to happen.
Right now, I’m right where I belong and I couldn’t be happier.

While Sami, annoying heel that he is, cried foul and vowed to get revenge in some form or fashion... while also making a renewed plea for donations to support medical care for people in war-torn Syria. Which is a face move, of course, but also fits into his gimmick of championing people from all the continents and not just the imperialistic ones.
Tomorrow begins my quest to get to the bottom of the INJUSTICE that was carried out against me on #Smackdown. That was crap! This is not over! This will not stand!— Sami Zayn (@SamiZayn) December 26, 2020

TL; DR - I love these guys.
