Kevin Owens Has Signed A WWE Main Roster Contract, Will Continue To Support His Family
VIA: It looks like Kevin Owens is finally a step ahead of Sami Zayn.
According to the latest Wrestling Observer Newsletter, the current NXT Champion and thorn in John Cena’s side has signed a main roster contract with WWE and “will be making the transition from the NXT brand to the main brand quickly.” That’s good news for his family, whom he is tasked to provide for, and bad news for anybody hoping to wrestle over the summer and keep their spine in place.
This raises two very important questions: How does the signing change the potential outcome of Owens’ match with Cena at Elimination Chamber, and what does it mean for his career in NXT? Here’s what we know:
He is booked for all Raw television going forward and will be starting on a full house show scheduled very soon. He will continue as a character on NXT television for the couple of months to where it’s a smooth transition out since he’s the group’s current champion.
