Now, Sami Zayn had a thing or two to say about Kevin Owens’ decision. While he doesn’t know if his marks the end of their feud, he wants Owens to understand that under all circumstances he should stay away from Zayn.

“Now, he comes into that match with a little trouble breathing and this and that. Hey man, you’re a WWE Superstar. We battle through a lot of things. I’ve been battling through two shoulders that have not been a hundred percent in years. I have disks in my neck that have been damaged for 12 years. I punched him in the face, he punched me in the face and the better man came out on top and if he needs a break, that’s not my problem. Just stay the hell away from me.”

“I can’t say with any certainty that it’s over. I can never say with any certainty that it’s over for good. At the very best, I can hope that [Kevin Owens] learnt his lesson. I know for a fact that his shoulder wasn’t doing too good in that match. I don’t know if you caught it. He was hurt, he was hurt bad and now he’s talking about needing rest and this and that. I’m hoping I sent my message loud and clear and that he’ll sit on the shelf for a little while and he’ll be out of my hair.” H/t Sportskeeda

Until Kevin Owens returns from his hiatus, the WWE Universe will not know how the feud ends, or if Hell in a Cell was the end.
