In a recent interview with NOLA.com, current WWE United States Champion and former WWE Universal Champion Kevin Owens spoke on who he'd love to face in the ring and what he envisions for WrestleMania 34.

Owens commented on who is "dream opponent" would be, if he had a chance to wrestle him and the current WWE Stars he has respect for.

“If you say past, it’s Shawn Michaels hands down. If you say present, Sami Zayn and I have had such a rich history, I feel like a one-on-one match at WrestleMania would be so perfect. But there’s also Finn Balor. He’s my best friend. He’s probably the one guy if I could sit across from in the ring at WrestleMania, that would make my career. Finn and I got to WWE at the same time, and we dived into an unknown territory. We gravitated toward each other very quickly. He’s like a brother to me now.”

Owens commented on what he'd like to do for WrestleMania 34.

“It's weird because everything happened so fast, even though I've already lived so many great things, I feel like it's only the tip of the iceberg. I’d love to be involved in the WWE Title match at WrestleMania 34 or at the very least be defending my United States Championship. I have no intention of letting that go anytime soon.”

Owens talked on his very first memory of watching WWE WrestleMania.

"My dad rented WrestleMania 11 at the video store when I was 11 years old. My first memory is actually the first match. I remember the British Bulldog being awesome. About two hours later, Shawn Michaels stole the show. It made me realize that if the smallest guy on that show can be the best, then me - at the time I was really scrawny - then maybe I could do this. I realized I could be a wrestler, and here we are now."
