Major WWE Title Match Finally Made Official For WrestleMania 39

This title bout has a really good chance of closing out night one of Mania.

WWE Raw SmackDown Tag Team Titles

One of the longest-rumored WrestleMania 39 matches finally became official Monday night, and it stands a pretty good chance of closing out night one of the big show.

Newly reunited Kevin Owens & Sami Zayn challenged the Usos on Raw to a Mania match for the Undisputed WWE Tag Team Championship, which the Ones accepted as part of a strategy to eradicate their Sami and KO problems in one fell swoop.

Owens and Zayn have been at odds for months, with Sami joining the Bloodline last year and turning his back on KO as the Prizefighter has tried to bring the stable down. His final betrayal came at Survivor Series, but Sami came around and rebuffed Roman Reigns' abuse at Royal Rumble, refusing to batter a defenseless Owens with a steel chair.


But it took KO nearly two months to finally forgive Zayn, which came on SmackDown Friday night. Monday, Sami and Kevin opened Raw and challenged the Usos as part of their effort to bring the Bloodline down. The brothers initially declined before deciding that it was their one, best chance to stop the two thorns in their collective sides.

This slow-simmering feud is bubbling up at the perfect time, leaving fans wanting to see the Canadians finally unseat the Uso, which is all you can ask for at this point. Aside from the Roman Reigns/Cody Rhodes feud, nothing feels as hot in WWE right now.
