WrestleMania Match Against Steve Austin And Other Feuds

Kevin Owens soon challenged Roman Reigns for the Universal Championship at TLC 2020 and then again at Royal Rumble 2021 but failed to win the title at both events. He soon shifted his focus to Sami Zayn reigniting their old rivalry. He defeated Zayn at WrestleMania 37 and attacked Logan Paul after the match.

He returned to RAW as a part of the 2021 draft. Owens would pick on a rivalry with then-WWE Champion Big E and the title contender Seth Rollins. He would insert himself into the title match on Day 1. On the road of the event, Owens and Rollins would go on to make friends with Rollins.

Both stars failed to capture the title and would go on to unsuccessfully challenge for the RAW Tag Team Championships on an episode of the RAW brand. Soon, Owens started expressing his displeasure on WrestleMania38 being organized in Texas, a town he hated.

He eventually called out Stone Cold Steve Austin to take part in the KO Show at WrestleMania. Austin hails from Texas and accepted Owens' invitation to the KO Show. At WrestleMania 38 Saturday, the conversation at the KO Show soon heated up leading to a match, Austin's first since WrestleMania XIX.

This was also the first time Owens was headlining WrestleMania. Austin defeated The Prizefighter at the event, following which Owens shifted his focus to Ezekiel, Elias' younger brother, whom Owens believed was just Elias trying to fool everyone. This led to a string of match leading eventually to a match at Hell In A Cell, which Owens won.
