Kevin Owens and Ezekiel managed to turn their ongoing storyline into one of the most entertaining things on Monday Night Raw. KO has been denying that Ezekiel is in fact Elias.
Owens was supposed to wrestle Ezekiel in a Money in the Bank qualifier, but was pulled out of action over what was said to be a minor injury. Fans have been wanting to see KO on their screens for quite some time.
Sean Sapp reported from behind his paywall that WWE intends to air a “KO Show” segment on the July 18th edition of Raw. However, KO himself hasn’t been advertised for the show tomorrow night.
Kevin Owens hasn’t been seen on WWE programming in nearly a month, and was pulled from the June 26 episode of WWE Raw. Fightful Select has learned that as of Sunday night, a “KO Show” segment was planned for WWE Raw for July 18. Thus far, Owens has not been advertised by WWE as appearing on the event. As often happens in wrestling, plans can be changed.
One instance occurred last week when Elias was planned for WWE Raw before that element was nixed. As mentioned, Owens was absent from the June 26 episode of Raw, where he was set to take on Elias/Ezekiel/Elrod in a Money in the Bank qualifying match. He would appear at the NHL Draft a couple of weeks later.
Owens was recently spotted at the NHL Draft. He is expected to miss a couple of weeks of in-ring action. We’ll have to wait and see what’s next in store for KO when he finally returns.
