Kevin Owens reveals a match that was “heavily discussed” for WWE Wrestlemania 32 but didn’t happen

At WWE Wrestlemania 32 in 2016, Kevin Owens defended the WWE Intercontinental Championship in a ladder match against Zack Ryder (Matt Cardona), Dolph Ziggler (Nic Nemeth), The Miz, Sami Zayn, Sin Cara, and Stardust (Cody Rhodes). During an interview WrestleSphere, Owens revealed that there had initially been talk of him facing The Undertaker at the event…

“I think things just shifted and that was the year that Shane McMahon returned, so obviously at the time, my standing in the company compared to Shane McMahon coming back after all those years, the thought was probably ‘Shane McMahon versus The Undertaker is a huge match. I know it was on the table and it was heavily discussed and it would have been amazing. My first WrestleMania, to be in there with The Undertaker, would have been sweet.

It didn’t happen, but I’ve been in the ring with him. I was actually in the ring with him in the main event of a Madison Square Garden show, so I got to do that with him which was really cool.”
