Kevin Owens sent out some interesting messages via his Twitter bio and location. Many fans took this to mean that his destination is now AEW, and then it was revealed that his WWE contract is ending much sooner than expected. He is still under WWE contract, so it’s still too early to know anything for sure.
Owens’ WWE deal was restructured prior to the pandemic to give him a larger downside guarantee, but his time was shortened. The current expiration date for Kevin Owens’ WWE contract is now January 31st, 2022.
Ringside News has learned that any talk about Kevin Owens leaving WWE right now is premature. He is still under contract so no talks can even begin with another company.
Owens is currently involved in a storyline with Happy Corbin on SmackDown. He was there to loan Corbin $1k when he was down on his luck, and now Happy Corbin and Owens are engaged in a building feud. Kevin Owens is still getting a fair amount of television time as well.
You can never say never in pro wrestling, but right now it’s too early to know what Kevin Owens will decide to do. WWE could make an offer he can’t refuse, because AEW is obviously an option for him.
