Kevin Owens came to the aid of Sami Zayn during a WWE Live Event

At a recent WWE Live event in Montreal, Kevin Owens came to aid of none other than his former best friend, Sami Zayn. Owens helped Zayn after a post match beat down from WWE Champion, Jinder Mahal, and his lackeys; the Singh Brothers, Samir and Sunil.

Owens and Zayn have a storied rivalry with each other. The rivalry, dating back to their Indy and Ring of Honor days, has carried over into WWE. The former best friends, now turned bitter enemies, have had memorable bouts with each other throughout their careers in ROH, NXT and WWE.  Still, even enemies can unite for a common goal.

Here is fan footage recorded during the Montreal WWE Live Event:

Could we see Kevin Owens and Sami Zayn teaming up?

If Zayn and Owens do team up, it wouldn’t be anytime soon. The reason for the save happening during this WWE Live Event is because they were in Montreal. Both Owens and Zayn are from that area. So, this save by Owens shouldn’t really be looked at as a face turn. It was simply a way to send the Montreal crowd home happy. Kevin Owens even sported a Montreal edition of his signature KO shirt.

In the future, I think that could be a possibility. Owens and Zayn were tag team champions during their run in Ring of Honor. A future reunion is possible for Owens and Zayn. From a storyline standpoint, it’s plausible to see the two former best friends team up. But for now, we should expect singles runs from both Owens and Zayn. The two are viable singles champions right now. But, if we ever see them team up in the WWE, expect them to be a very innovative and exciting tag team to watch.
