• Kevin Owens thanked the fans for their support and may have hinted on what he plans to do in the future
  • Serious injuries and an expiring deal could be limiting Owens from being featured heavily on WWE programming
  • He teased a reunion with the Young Bucks and Adam Cole in AEW back in September

Former WWE Universal Champion Kevin Owens took to social media to address concerns about his future within the company and in the business in general.

“I really don’t know what to say other than thank you all for your continued support and kind words. It really means a lot. The day I stop giving it my absolute all in that ring is the day I walk away. Not a second sooner,” said Owens on his Twitter account.

Fans have been wondering what is in store for Owens has yet to be prominently featured in the main event scene again.

Owens made his first appearance on WWE TV since the August 20 episode of Smackdown this past Monday on Raw in a four-man ladder match to determine who will gain an opportunity to face current WWE Champion Big E for the title.

For a while, it looked like redemption in the form of a win for Owens was within reach until Seth Rollins came in and stopped his attempt.

Prior to the ladder match, his past feuds include the likes of Baron “Happy” Corbin and Apollo Crews, not the type of names a superstar of Owens’ caliber usually gets into programs with.

Stretching back a bit further, Owens had a decent program with WWE Universal Champion Roman Reigns and his Bloodline faction in December that culminated in him losing the blowoff match at the Royal Rumble event in January.

His deal is believed to expire on January 31, 2022, and there will be no 90-day no-compete clause since the contract will run out instead of him being released, making him an unrestricted free agent.

In a now-deleted tweet, Owens hinted in September that he was heavily considering a reunion with the Young Bucks (Matt and Nick Jackson) and Adam Cole in AEW.

His latest tweet suggests that the 37-year-old still has enough in his gas tank for another program before he departs in three months.

There is reason to worry about his longevity as he has suffered injuries to both of his knees in 2018 and was taken off TV to rest an ankle that he injured in his match against Rollins at WrestleMania 36.

It is not uncommon to have wrestlers beg off time to recuperate from their injuries (See: Alexa Bliss), but Owens has failed to regain the momentum that made him a fan-favorite in WWE.

A move to AEW could very well be the next best move for his career as it eventually winds down.
