Kevin Owens has decided to stay with WWE as he signed a three-year deal that will make him one of the highest-paid wrestlers in the company. This deal will take him to January 31, 2024.
Fightful Select has heard from several WWE wrestlers and staff about the re-signing. The news was received unanimously positively from those people. It was said Owens is well respected and liked within the locker room. One wrestler referred to him as a “good moral compass,” who cares about the safety and well-being of others.
Another person said Owens is deserving of a huge deal for “any number of reasons.” WWE sources said they were pretty sure as of three weeks ago that Owens was going to re-sign.
The media outlet has also heard from several people in AEW regarding the news. Most everyone was happy for him and believed AEW would be on the table whenever his deal was up. Owens is said to maintain good relationships with many people there. One source said that anyone who knows Owens understands that his priorities are with his family first.
An interview done by Pat Laprade of TVA Sports with Owens was recently released where Owens opened up on the decision to stay with WWE.
