• “We lost Jay Briscoe. I really hope we made him proud” – Kevin Owens After WrestleMania 39
In the main event of WrestleMania 39 Saturday, Sami Zayn & Kevin Owens defeated The Usos to win the Undisputed WWE Tag Team Championship.
With this loss, Jimmy & Jey Uso’s 622-day reign as Tag Team Champions has come to an end.
In the post-show press conference, Kevin put over The Usos and thanked The Briscoes for helping him and Sami over the years.
Below is what KO, who is now a Grand Slam Champion, said:
“We’ve talked about [Sami Zayn] being an MVP, and I’ve said it like you said it’s true.
The Usos, even though everybody loves them, everybody appreciates them, they’re underappreciated, they’re the best, unbelievable. I don’t have enough good words for them.
And also, I said PWG helped us get here, Super Dragon helped us get here. There’s two other guys that really helped us get here, their names are Mark and Jay Briscoe.
We lost Jay recently. I really hope we made him proud tonight because God, great guys, and we really miss them.”
Sami then ended it by saying:
“Life goes fast, and so it’s nice to just enjoy these moments. Thank you for being a part of it, and thank you for letting us do it.”
