Kevin Owens screams at the camera as he defeats Ezekiel at Hell In A Cell
WWE Superstar Kevin Owens defeated Ezekiel in their match at the Hell In A Cell premium live event.
The feud between Owens and Zeke began the night after WrestleMania 38, when Owens was interrupted by the rookie superstar. After Owens recognized him as Elias, madness began to ensue.
The former Universal Champion has embarked on a quest to prove The Drifter has returned. This even resulted in a lie detector test held by Alpha Academy’s Chad Gable, which Ezekiel passed with flying colors, further enraging Owens. Eventually, the Canadian-born star challenged Zeke to a match at Hell In a Cell to prove his identity once and for all.
The match saw plenty of aggressive attacks from both men. Owens shouted the word “Elias” at Zeke throughout the match, even shouting “Elias smile” at him while latching his mouth against the ropes. At the end of the match, Kevin Owens hit the Stunner and scored the three count on Zeke, again shouting “Elias” at the camera.
This win will likely feel like vindication for Owens, who has been infuriated by the returning superstar for months on WWE TV.
