Sami Zayn’s emotional backstage reaction after Kevin Owens’ Universal title win

Sami Zayn’s reaction when Kevin Owens won the WWE Universal Championship in 2016 was seriously emotional.

Sami Zayn and Owens have been portrayed as best friends and bitter enemies on WWE TV since their debut in NXT in 2014.

That’s more than just a storyline, and Zayn’s reaction to KO’s Universal Title win for six years proves it.

How did Sami Zayn react to Kevin Owens winning the Universal Title?

Kevin won the Universal Championship in the summer of 2016, taking advantage of an unfortunate injury that caused Finn Balor to vacate the title the night after SummerSlam.

Thanks to some help from Triple H, KO won the title in a four-way match involving Roman Reigns, Seth Rollins and ex-WWE Superstar Big Cass.

Fans have wanted to see Owens at the top of the card in WWE for a while now, but no one wanted it more than Sami Zayn.
