Kevin Owens has signed a new deal with WWE according to a new report. The former Universal Champion’s contract was reportedly due to expire in early 2022, but the new contract has now been described as a “multi-year deal” in the report.
The news has been reported by Fightful Select. In the report, it is stated that Kevin Owens has been made “an excellent offer” to remain with WWE. While some had speculated that Owens may let his contract expire and then go on to AEW as a free agent, the report states that of the AEW talent that has been spoken to, they did not believe that All Elite Wrestling would match the offer made by WWE.
It should be noted that while this news has been reported by Fightful, neither WWE or Kevin Owens are yet to comment on this reported news.
