Kevin Owens "Bothers" This WWE Legend For WrestleMania Match "Every Year"

He got Steve Austin at WrestleMania, this WWE icon next for KO?

Shawn Michaels

Kevin Owens has revealed that he "bothers" none other than Shawn Michaels for a WrestleMania match "every year". In fact, the WWE stalwart has been doing that for a long time now, and he remains determined to coax HBK back into the ring for one more go-around.

KO told fans during a Q&A session on UpUpDownDown that Michaels always comes up with valid excuses for skipping the potential 'Mania clash. This year, Kev texted Shawn asking if he was ready to lace up the boots again. Two months went by without a response, then the NXT boss replied to say he'd just had shoulder surgery so wouldn't be able to do anything physical.


Owens finds it "so nice" that Michaels politely declines rather than just telling him to beat it. Of course, the SmackDown babyface was handpicked for Steve Austin's return bout at 'Mania 38, so he's probably confident about his chances of working with more legends on the biggest show(s) of the year.

Thus far, "Mr. WrestleMania" hasn't met him halfway. It's seriously unlikely to happen, and KO knows that, but he'll keep trying every spring. Who knows, maybe next year eh?
