Kevin Owens established himself as one of the most well-respected and believed pro wrestlers in WWE right now. Just like every other pro wrestler out there, Owens is susceptible to injuries. He is out of action due to an MCL sprain, and now it seems Owens’ status for Survivor Series is questionable.
It was initially believed that Kevin Owens suffered an injury during the WWE Sunday Night Stunner house show in Madison, Wisconsin on November 13th. Unfortunately, The Prizefighter did end up suffering an MCL sprain. That being said, he’s working hard to get cleared.
While speaking during the latest Wrestling Observer Radio, Dave Meltzer talked about Kevin Owens’ recovery after his injury. Meltzer noted that Owens is currently “not moving very well.”
“He’s doing rehab at the Performance Center. It was confirmed that the main event on the WWE pay-per-view, Survivor Series, was going to be the Bloodline – Roman Reigns, the Usos, Sami Zayn and Solo Sikoa – against Butch, Sheamus, Ridge Holland, Drew McIntyre and Kevin Owens.
“However, because Kevin Owens suffered an injury, which the last I heard was a sprained MCL … he was gonna get it checked out.
“I’d heard Monday morning, and I haven’t heard anything since Monday morning, that it had not been checked out. But he’s rehabbing it.
“I don’t know if he’ll be ready for the pay-per-view or not. If they do an angle on SmackDown on Friday and throw somebody else in, that tells you that he wasn’t ready.
“I do know from somebody… I did hear that he’s not moving very well. So he better heal up quick if he’s gonna make that pay-per-view.
“And like I said, I don’t know the situation, whether he will or he won’t. I haven’t heard. But that’s the basic situation.”
WWE also had huge Survivor Series WarGames plans for Kevin Owens prior to the injury. By the looks of it, Owens could miss out on the WarGames match, and this is surely going to disappoint fans. We’ll have to see when Owens will be back, because it seems to be up to WWE’s medical team at this point.
