14. Sami Zayn vs Kevin Owens for the WWE Universal Championship

Two men whose careers are intrinsically linked. Right from the start they were friends whilst at the same time foes. Kevin Steen vs El Generico on the indies became Kevin Owens vs Sami Zayn in the WWE. They have battled so many times during the last few years, first in NXT then on the WWE main roster, it’s not too much of a stretch to think that they’ll face each other for a top title in WWE, and 2017 should be that year.

Owens currently holds the Universal title, but may very well lose it before the end of January. Owens will more than likely end up facing Chris Jericho in the run up to, and most likely at, WrestleMania. Zayn is right in the middle of his battles with the monster that is Braun Strowman, but that whole scenario should be done in the next couple of months.

With both of those feuds ending, these two long-time foes will end up doing battle once again. First with only pride at stake, then with that lovely shiny title belt up for grabs somewhere down the line.

These two men should have the company built upon their backs in the next few years. Both are immensely talented in the ring, both have the fans behind them in their own ways, both are pretty well rounded to all aspects of professional wrestling. If the WWE wants the company to go from strength to strength then this feud needs to happen again asap.
