Why I Love Wrestling: Sami Zayn and Kevin Owens

Look at that picture. That could be anyone really. Any pair of friends in their early 20’s hanging out, enjoying life, looking forward to their respective futures. Except, it’s not just any two friends. It’s Sami Zayn, left, and Kevin Owens, right, two of the best wrestlers on the planet today and currently in WWE NXT. These two have, obviously, been friends for years. They have wrestled together as a team and against each other in many different promotions around the world. Their matches have always been top notch, steal the show type affairs. Their previous personas of El Generico and Kevin Steen, I’ll let you figure out which is which because you’re a smart audience, are responsible for the featured match this week. But before you watch, look at that picture again. Then watch these two beat the holy hell out of each other at Ring of Honor: Ladder War. The clip is just highlights but damn are they awesome! Do yourself a favor and find the entire match. It’s worth it.

Dan Ryan

Dan Ryan was once the most feared and respected luchador in the world until the "Great DDT Disaster of '85" where Dan unfortunately DDT'd his opponent so hard into the ground that he opened a gate to the underworld that let unholy things into this world. After that, Dan refused to wrestle anymore but he's found new life writing and talking about his favorite hobbies here at Geekade. He pens the weekly Why I Love Wrestling series, co-hosts The Stone Age Gamer Podcast, expertly pairs video games with beer, and much, much more. Dan is a personality that Geekade simply would not be the same without.
