Kevin Owens leaves WWE South American tour for personal reasons

What is really going on in the WWE locker room? The phrase “personal reasons” is making a run at WWE gold and his latest victim is SmackDown superstar Kevin Owens.

With Neville, Nia Jax and a rumored locker room of wrestlers going home, Owens is now flying back to the states right in the middle of WWE’s South American tour.

From the report

“Kevin Owens left Buenos Aires today and will not appear at the remaining Live Events in Argentina and Chile this weekend, has learned.

Though Owens did perform at Luna Park for Thursday night's Live Event in Buenos Aires, he has left before the remaining Live Event dates scheduled in Argentina for tonight, and at the Movistar Arena in Santiago, Chile, this Friday and Saturday, due to personal reasons.”

Is there something more going on behind the scenes at WWE that is causing a mass exodus of wrestlers?

No word yet if Kevin Owens will make or miss SmackDown’s next television event on Tuesday October 24th in Milwaukee, Wisconsin.
