WWE Superstar Kevin Owens may reportedly be leaving the company sooner than expected. It was recently reported by Fightful Select that Owens may be leaving for AEW around January 2022.
“Fightful has been made aware that one WWE contract expires much sooner than originally thought by the public. Kevin Owens did an interview in May of 2018 with TVA Sports where he’d stated that he’d signed a new 5-year contract that would carry him into 2023. However, as it turns out, that deal is actually now up in January 2022, according to WWE sources.
We’ve learned from a WWE official that WWE restructured several contracts ahead of the pandemic, and for whatever reason, Kevin Owens’ deal was changed to expire in January 2022. We were not told of any additional terms of the deal or specifically why it was shortened. We’ll work to find out if any other deals were adjusted.”
It is not confirmed in Owens will definitely be leaving the promotion at the end of the year, but his recent activity on social media, such as posting the co-ordinates to Mount Rushmore, and writing “almost there” on his Twitter account indicate that he would like to join All Elite Wrestling.
