Kevin Owens reportedly re-signs

Dec 15, 2021 - by Marc Middleton

Kevin Owens is reportedly staying with WWE.

Owens’ previous WWE contract was set to expire at the end of January, but now Fightful Select reports that he has re-signed with the company. Details on the new contract have not been confirmed as of this writing, but it’s said to be a multi-year deal.

WWE officials reportedly made an “excellent offer” for Owens to stay, and they are said to be “over the moon” about the former Universal Champion re-signing.

Owens’ WWE deal was originally set to expire much later, but in 2019 he restructured it to expire at the end of January 2022. WWE began negotiating a new deal with Owens this past fall.

It’s believed that AEW would’ve had interest in signing Owens, but sources there did not believe that the company would have matched what WWE offered Owens to stay.

Owens is set to compete at the WWE Day 1 pay-per-view on New Year’s Day, in the Fatal 4 Way with Bobby Lashley, Seth Rollins and WWE Champion Big E.

Owens originally signed with WWE in August 2014. He is a one-time WWE NXT Champion, a one-time WWE Universal Champion, two-time WWE Intercontinental Champion, and a three-time WWE United States Champion.

    June 2022: WWE has released Keven Owens due to budget cuts and creative having nothing for him.

    What an absolute idiot if this is true. WWE is going nowhere but down. Sinking ship. All the promises they have told you KO will be fizzled out and this time next year you will be kicking yourself.

    We could have a bit of faith in his decision making. As we know, WWE has a habit of not making *new* stars. Kevin Owen is NOT a new star. We dont know for sure what will happen.

  4. I’m still upset they got rid of Keith Lee and Karrion Kross but they re sign Kevin Owens who hasn’t done anything since 2017.

    He did whats best for him and his life, judging him because you hate one product and have a hard on for another is your opinion and doesn’t make it the best choice for his life and his pocket book. WWE is “sinking” but yet they still out perform AEW in ratings. Both promotions suck but to the viewer ratings AEW apparently sucks more and that’ll be the case until ratings prove otherwise.

    People on Twitter and junk are basically like “wtf dude, go to aew” and ragging on him.

    At the end of the day it doesn’t matter which produce you like more because from his perspective it was safer to sign with the billion dollar company thats been around for decades. That isn’t to say that AEW won’t last, but track record wise WWE is the safer bet.

    HereForTheLawls, I hear you I do but take a step back…

    WWE killed alot of wrestling fans love for the sport. So much so, they don’t tune in any more what so ever, nor will they ever again despite new companies starting up even if they are good. People have moved on. That’s because of WWE. When they bought WCW and ECW some fans instantly stopped watching (totally) or started watching the indy’s/TNA, some stayed and then left later (for good or indy’s/TNA), some stayed and are still watching… What I’m saying is, it’s hard for AEW or any other company to just randomly get fans who aren’t already watching the competition, to jump ship. And to start getting kids into AEW than WWE is hard because of how WWE is marketed. AEW I’d say are on the right course but are so far behind, even with WWE slowly dying.

    KO I get has done what’s best for his family but if you aint happy most the time there’s no point. WWE is an unhappy place – they make it so, they micromanage everything. I expect them to invest in KO and Sami Zayn but they’ll go nowhere with it because creative sucks… everything in place at WWE sucks. It won’t be long before KO finds himself mid-card doing nothing, the money he’s getting will wear thin and we’ll be in the same boat as now, but he will have more years on his contract. WWE’s court then.
