Kevin Owens is taking a break from WWE

New, 34 comments

Kevin Owens is taking some time off from WWE. Here it is in his own words on Twitter, from just a short while ago:

This message comes amidst fan speculation that Owens may have suffered a legitimate injury at Hell in a Cell 2021 last night (June 20) in a very physical match against long-time nemesis Sami Zayn. Zayn was able to use his Helluva Kick finisher to put Owens away and even things up after losing to KO at WrestleMania 37.

Owens has been fighting like hell and bumping like a madman on Friday nights for a while now, going back to those brutally violent matches against Roman Reigns last year. His more recent matches this year against Zayn and Intercontinental champion Apollo Crews haven’t exactly been cakewalks either.

There’s no substantive word yet on how Owens is physically holding up right now following last night’s match with Zayn. We’ll bring you more details on this situation as they come forward, and hope to see Owens back on WWE television whenever he is ready.
