The Wrestling Observer Newsletter says that Owens isn’t expected to return until after WrestleMania in April. At this point, there is no word on when he will be working live events.
We previously reported via Barnburner another plan WWE was kicking around which could see Owens return sooner and start a feud with Bobby Lashley. This would make sense because Lashley put him out of action. Plans are known to often change around WWE at Vince McMahon’s whim. So plans could be pushed back or nixed completely for Owens vs Lashley.
Kevin Owens signed a five-year contract last year so he has a lot more time with WWE. Hopefully, he can have a successful rest of his career without any more injury setbacks.
