Kevin Owens is sticking with the WWE. News that the former WWE Universal Champion’s contract was on the verge of expiring had been floating around for the last couple of months, but Sean Ross Sapp reported via Fightful Select on Wednesday that Owens has put pen to paper on a new contract to remain with the promotion. Sapp wrote, “WWE sources that we spoke to said they were over the moon about retaining Owens, that they made it clear to him personally that they were eager to retain his services,” adding that a source described the multi-year deal as “an excellent offer.”
Owens had been recently teasing that he might go to AEW to reunite with The Young Bucks and Adam Cole (formerly known as the Mount Rushmore of Pro Wrestling on the independent scene.” Sapp noted that wrestlers within AEW didn’t believe the company would be able to match WWE’s offer to keep him. Owens is booked for the upcoming WWE Championship match at the Day 1 pay-per-view, taking on current champion Big E, Seth Rollins and Bobby Lashley.
