Kevin Owens Open To Facing Matthew McConaughey At WWE WrestleMania 39

Kevin Owens vs. Matthew McConaughey at WrestleMania 39?

Celebrity matches and appearances are synonymous with WrestleMania and the 38th edition of The Showcase Of The Immortals featured two celebrity bouts as Logan Paul teamed with The Miz to take on Rey and Dominik Mysterio, while Johnny Knoxville also defeated Sami Zayn in an Anything Goes Match.

Speaking on After The Bell, Kevin Owens revealed he wasn't opposed to celebrities wrestling in WWE and the former Universal Champion revealed Matthew McConaughey is his dream celebrity opponent. 

"I did interviews before WrestleMania and people were asking me, 'If you could pick a celebrity to have a match with, who would it be?' He's my favourite actor...a few years ago, Matthew McConaughey came to a show, he was backstage. I didn't get to meet him because there was a line of people waiting to talk to him, so I didn't get to see him. I would have loved to say hi," Owens began.

"I remember, not long after that, he talked about how he would love to do something in WWE. I don't know him at all, but 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 anytime."

Owens then laughed: "If we're speaking things into existence, WrestleMania 39, come at me McConaughey, I'm gonna f**k you up."

While a match may appear unlikely, the True Detective star has previously revealed he would be interested in stepping inside the squared circle.
