Sami Zayn & Kevin Owens are happy but somewhat disappointed that Jey Uso & Cody Rhodes will challenge for the Undisputed WWE Tag Team Titles at Fastlane 2023.
On this week’s episode of RAW, it was confirmed that Uso and Rhodes will face Damian Priest and Finn Balor at this weekend’s pay-per-view event in the faces first title opportunity.
After RAW, Zayn and Owens, the former champions, were asked for their reaction to the match. Zayn said,
“Yeah, mixed emotions there, Byron [Saxton]. Really, for me, anyway. I’m happy for Jey Uso, I genuinely am, and for Cody Rhodes. Those guys are my friends, I want the best for them. But I can’t help but feel those are our championships. And, yes, Judgment Day cheated to beat us for those championships. Yes, they cheated in the rematch, but at the end of the day, it feels like now we’re being kicked to the back of the line, and that’s not a great feeling. While I’m happy for those guys, it’s hard to be happy about the whole situation. So, for me, it’s mixed emotions.”
Owens had a much different reaction to his tag-team partner. He said,
“I don’t have mixed emotions at all. I couldn’t care less. I don’t care who the champions are. Look, all I care about is that whoever walks out of Fastlane as tag team champions, whether it’s Judgment Day or Cody and Jey, they should expect us real soon.”
Owens and Zayn captured the Undisputed WWE Tag Team Championships from The Usos at WrestleMania 39 and lost the gold to Priest and Balor at WWE Payback 2023 last month.
