Kevin Owens is still working WWE live events, but he hasn’t been seen on television for a bit. He is not injured, since he just wrestled in a tag team match on October 29th in Mexico, however a recent report suggested he was pulled from television for a totally different reason. That is not the case.
A recent report from Wrestle Votes stated that Kevin Owens was pulled off WWE television due to Sami Zayn’s current momentum with The Bloodline. It was said that, “he was pegged to get involved with Sami and The Bloodline, but that’s white-hot right now. Those plans from what I’ve been told are definitely pushed back, but they’re not off, because the plan is for Kevin Owens to be with Sami Zayn. Whatever they had planned for Kevin Owens is totally on pause because this stuff with Sami doesn’t come around often. This was supposed to be a little three, four week comedy deal, and it’s getting big.”
Ringside News asked around about this story, and we were told by a tenured member of the creative team that this version of events is “fake news.” It was further detailed to us that this decision had nothing to do with any creative direction for Sami Zayn.
Owens being off television has nothing to do with Sami, and nothing to do with whether or not KO and Sami end up teaming. Owens being off TV is something completely different and nothing to do anything in that fake news report.
The general theory is that Kevin Owens and Sami Zayn will end up battling alongside each other again eventually. They are great rivals, but also amazing partners. Those plans have not been confirmed, but the road to WrestleMania is coming up very soon. With Triple H in control, anything is possible at this point.
Only time will tell when Kevin Owens re-appears on WWE television, but he has a legion of fans who are ready to pop whenever they hear his adrenaline-pumping music kick off once again.
