NXT Champion Finn Balor has taken to social media to make it clear he wants Kevin Owens to defeat Sami Zayn at WrestleMania 37.

Balor, who feuded with Owens in NXT in 2015, is close friends with the WWE SmackDown Superstar in real life. Writing on Twitter, the Irishman jokingly said he wants Owens to “beat the s***” out of Zayn when they meet this weekend.

In recent months, Zayn has established himself as one of the top heel superstars in WWE. His over-the-top character is convinced that everyone and everything in the company is conspiring against him.

Owens will face Zayn in a singles match on the second night of WrestleMania 37 on April 11. YouTube personality Logan Paul is set to support Zayn in the match after attending the premiere of his documentary on the latest episode of SmackDown.

Before the two-night WrestleMania 37 event takes place, NXT is set to hold its own two-night event this week. A total of 10 matches have been announced for NXT TakeOver: Stand & Deliver, including Finn Balor vs. Karrion Kross (w/Scarlett).

Kross won the NXT Championship from Keith Lee at NXT TakeOver XXX in August 2020. However, he was forced to relinquish the title four days later due to a shoulder injury. In September 2020, Finn Balor defeated Adam Cole at NXT Super Tuesday II to become a two-time NXT Champion.
