Kevin Owens: WWE Elimination Chamber Being In Montreal Is Great Timing

Kevin Owens comments on WWE Elimination Chamber being in Montreal.

Following WWE Royal Rumble, the company’s next premium live event, Elimination Chamber, will emanate from the Bell Centre in Montreal, Quebec, Canada, on February 18.  Owens and Sami Zayn are both from Canada, so it’s a safe bet that they’re looking forward to the show. The event will come at an interesting time, as the Royal Rumble ended with a thrilling twist when Zayn turned on Roman Reigns, and The Bloodline proceeded to beat him down.


Speaking with Nick Talbot of MySanAntonio before the Royal Rumble event, Owens briefly commented on WWE Elimination Chamber and noted that it’s “great timing.” Owens expressed that both he and Zayn are excited about the show.

“It’s great timing for sure, and it’s very exciting to have that show in our hometown, and we are very much both looking forward to it,” Owens said.

Owens and Zayn have plenty of history in the ring, both as partners and rivals. In WWE, the two stars have battled on the biggest stage of all, as they faced off at WrestleMania 37 in 2021. In hindsight, Owens stated that he felt like that match marked their peak, but as they remain involved with each other on WWE TV, Owens noted that it’s gratifying to see that people still want to see them work together.

“Honestly, I kind of felt like we hit our peak when we had the massive WrestleMania match against each other,” Owens said. ‘Doesn’t really get any bigger than that. But now we’re coming back around to it one more time, and we are involved with each other again. People still want to see it; people still care about it. So that’s really gratifying.”

At WWE Royal Rumble, Zayn betrayed The Bloodline when Reigns told him to hit Owens with a chair. Owens had already been brutally attacked by the group, and rather than hurting his friend, Zayn hit Reigns with a chair, prompting a vicious beatdown by the stable.
