He deserves a rematch after what happened at Clash of Champions.

They have both had success but Kevin does half the work and gets the promotion. He is the teacher’s pet. Triple H handed Kevin the Universal Title. He was not handed anything when he cashed in the briefcase at Wrestlemania. Everyone has a Kevin Owens in their lives, but he has THE Kevin Owens in his life.
Cole asks Seth about being replaced by Kevin Owens in the friendship with Triple H. Seth says you cannot replace Seth Rollins. Kevin is a cog in the machine. Seth says his eyes are wide open and he sees things differently. He will destroy that machine piece by piece. It starts with Kevin Owens and the Universal title.

Kevin wants to make sure that he understood Chris. Kevin says it sounds amazing if they are tag team champions, but Cesaro and Sheamus have the tag title match.
Chris says Sheamus and Cesaro are not even friends. They can face The New Day in a non title match, then beat them for the titles. Then they will both be the Tag Team and Universal Champions at the same time.

Xavier points out that they do not swim and then he asks when was the last time that Kevin jumped over anything.
Kevin says that is good, but Woods is now on THE LIST a second time.
Woods says they were going to check out the Magnificent Seven or watch Luke Cage. However, since you talked about throwing hands with the New Day, you have your match. Woods says you are not dressed to fight so they will give them time to get ready. Woods says Owens and Jericho will never become the WWE Tag Team Champions of the World.
