Top 5: Kevin Owens Matches

By @TrueGodImmortal

Kevin Owens has been amazing since arriving to WWE. From his start in NXT to his other moments in the company on the main roster, he's probably the most consistent performer in the entire company. So today, we wanted to look at his best matches since arriving in WWE. Yes, I know, he's Kevin Steen and his matches on the indies are all classics. In this case, we're just talking his WWE matches. Let's get right into it.

5. Kevin Owens vs Finn Balor
Beast In The East

-I struggled with this one. He has one on NXT with Finn that's absolutely brilliant as well, but this one had everything around it. The buildup. The excitement. The impending reality that Finn would dethrone him. This match had a huge big fight feel and delivered.

4. Kevin Owens vs Sami Zayn
NXT: Rival

-This match may seem like a destruction of Zayn, but it was a solid contest up until the brutal beatdown that saw Owens win after Zayn couldn't continue. What better way to kick off their rivalry than with a contest that ends like this? Zayn still hadn't got his revenge either. He may never.

3. Kevin Owens vs John Cena
Money In The Bank 2015

-I want to say this is his best. It's very close. The only thing that will not let me put it at no. 1 is the fact that Cena won. This was a truly great back and forth contest, with both men pulling put all the stops to garner the win. Cena just happened to get lucky and pull out the win.

2. Kevin Owens vs Neville
NXT- Episode 255

This was a match that confirmed to me that Kevin Owens had arrived. He was killing it and this match was his best NXT match overall and in execution. I think it's not only his best NXT match and top 15 in his entire career. Neville is amazing as well and the two have an instant chemistry every time. Owens wins this one in a well deserved, hard fought battle.

1. Kevin Owens vs John Cena
Elimination Chamber 2015

-This was the one. Owens' arrival. His moment to show he belonged. And he knocked it out of the park. Owens and Cena worked well together and in this contest, we saw Owens push Cena to the limit and pick up his first victory on the main roster.... over one of the biggest stars in the company no less. An amazing feat if I would say so.
