Kevin Owens WWE Rumors: 3 'Clash Of The Champions' Opponents For New Universal Champion [VIDEO]
Kevin Owens is now the man on "Monday Night RAW."
In a shocking twist, the former NXT Champion was aided by Triple H and defeated Big Cass, Seth Rollins and Roman Reigns in a Triple Threat match to win the vacant Universal Championship. The belt was vacated due to a shoulder injury to Finn Balor.
While it's possible that Owens meets one or both of Rollins and Reigns at Clash of the Champions on Sept. 21 at the Bankers Life Fieldhouse in Indianapolis, it's likely Big Cass will go back to his tag team duties with Enzo Amore.
It seems Reigns and Rollins may be wrapped up with "The Game" come Clash of the Champions, which could potentially lead to Owens needing a different opponent for the big event.
Here are three possibilities to feud with the new WWE Universal Champion.
1) Sami Zayn
The former NXT standout is one of Owens' greatest rivals an these two always put a good match on every time they step in the ring together. These two have waged wars for many years, so it would only make sense for Zayn to come knocking once he sees his arch rival with the richest prize on the Red Brand. Zayn would have to build some serious momentum to become a serious contender for the prize.
There may be some time before this rivalry comes to fruition, but the "Swiss Superman" has a history with KO and is well overdue for a push. Currently, he's trailing his best-of-seven series against Sheamus 2-0, but the WWE could easily have him fall behind 3-0 and make a rip roaring comeback to grab momentum and win 4-3. The winner of that seven-match set is due a championship shot, so Cesaro could very well be on the cusp of a major feud.
3) Chris Jericho
As much as the thought of breaking up JeriKO is a painful one, it could lead to a potential Feud of the Year. "Y2J" has been an ally to Owens, but he could get jealous now that his tag team partner is on the top of the mountain. Owens and Jericho are magical together onthe microphone, but the thought of them going back-and-forth on each other in a rivalry could be too good to pass up on.
