Kevin Owens has been on a roll ever since his match with Steve Austin. Now at WrestleMania 39 next year, Kevin Owens wants to work with actor Matthew McConaughey.
On the opening night of WrestleMania 38, Owens battled returning WWE icon Steve Austin in the main event. Two celebrity matches were also included during the two-night extravaganza: Johnny Knoxville vs. Sami Zayn and The Miz & Logan Paul vs. Dominik & Rey Mysterio.

Owens noted on Corey Graves’ After The Bell podcast that celebrities participating is fine as long as they respect the wrestling profession. McConaughey, the Hollywood megastar, is his ideal celebrity opponent, he added.
“I remember not long after that [McConaughey attending a WWE show] he talked about how he’d love to do something in WWE. I don’t know him at all, but to me he seems like the kind of guy who would be coming in to do it right and have a blast. People like that are welcome in our industry any time,” Owens said.
Graves quipped that when his podcast guests appear on his show, they often speak things into existence. Kevin Owens responded by issuing a challenge to the 52-year-old actor:
“So yeah, if we’re speaking things into existence, WrestleMania 39, come at me, McConaughey, I’m gonna f*** you up!”
