Apparently, WWE already has his future planned out. After the feud with Reigns is settled, Kevin Owens will team up with another Superstar and be a Tag Team wrestler.

Owens mentioned to Alex McCarthy of talkSPORT that he was pitched three Superstars to work with, and all seem like interesting choices.

Mustafa Ali, AJ Styles, and Apollo Crews may be out of reach. Ali is currently involved as the leader of Retribution. The masked faction is yet to have a direction in their storyline for Raw.

AJ Styles, also currently on Raw, is in a feud with WWE Champion Drew Mcintyre. Unless Styles makes a switch back to SmackDown, the tag team may not be a possibility.

Apollo Crews is a very good option. Crews has been sidelined since his feud with the Hurt Business ended. He can do good work in reviving the WWE Tag team division with Owens.

Kevin Owens teaming up with Daniel Bryan has endless possibilities 

The former WWE Universal Champion, however, has his sights set on Daniel Bryan. The fact that he still awaits a response means he has his mind on something.

Bryan, experienced in Tag team wrestling, may just accept. His work with Kane as Team Hell No was pretty decent until it fell apart. Just thinking of the pair-up seems exciting.

Despite his friendship with Sami Zayn, Owens chooses Bryan over the WWE Intercontinental Champion. He already worked with Zayn before, but may want to revisit that storyline if the option is open.

Vince McMahon has probably realized the gaping absence of Tag Team Wrestling in WWE. There have been attempts to revive the dying division and bringing in big names like Kevin Owens and Daniel Bryan can turn some heads for sure.

Working in Tag Team wrestling is not the worst pitch Owens has received. The worst-case scenario would be him reviving The Mountie on SmackDown, which was also an idea he was once pitched!
