Kevin Owens and Sami Zayn defeat The Usos to give WrestleMania one of its greatest fantasy endings ever in a historic tag team main event
Kevin Owens and Sami Zayn finally fulfilled their long-held career dreams with a victory in a historic main event to cap off the first night of WrestleMania 39.
The Canadian pair challenged The Usos—the longest-reigning tag team champions of all time at 622 days—in the main event, marking the first time the titles had been defended as the main event in the event’s 39 iterations.
The match was buzzing from the start. There was no slow build and escalation to speak of – both teams got into it straight away.
After Owens’ hot tag, Zayn jumped the top rope, doing an “We the People” taunt before crashing into Uso, hoping to knock the champs out with their special move.
He only got two counts due to his troubles, and the Usos began to dominate again with a series of super kicks.

The heroes set out to dissect Zane and punish him for betraying The Bloodline, in their eyes.
This is a storyline that goes back nine months, but it really started at the Royal Rumble where Zayn hit Roman Reigns with a chair when he was ordered to attack an old friend, Owens.
Back in the main event at WrestleMania 39, Owens was looking to help his friend and threw a double punch through the table announcing his troubles. The adorable couple was in real trouble when Zane ate his 1D.
But then Zayn kicked out. Ji Uso continued to assault and berate Zayn for his betrayal, and Owens was too hurt to help.
Zayn managed to hit J in the corner and the comeback was on. Two powerbombs from Owens, a Helluva Kick from Zayn and then a Stunner from Owens still wasn’t enough to get the three count.
Finally, Zayn caught the hot tag and landed three Helluva Kicks on Jey Uso to secure the Undisputed WWE Tag Team Championships.
After everything Zayn has been through in The Bloodline, their cruel exile prompts him to return to his best friend and fulfill what they once only dreamed of. As far as professional wrestling can get.
