Recent reports have suggested that top WWE Superstar Kevin Owens has been booked to do battle with Roman Reigns and his pedigree on November 26 at Survivor Series: WarGames.
Currently, WWE is gearing up to host its first main roster WarGames match, with Roman’s Bloodline faction set to team up. Sheamus, Drew McIntyre and The Brawling Brutes will join as the fifth member. Given his history with Roman and The Bloodline as honorary use and one-time best friend Sami Zayn, many were expecting Kevin Owens to be the fifth man on his team.
However, this past weekend, Owens suffered a knee injury, putting him on the shelf. In a recent report on Wrestling Observer Radio, Dave Meltzer said that WWE had bigger plans for him before his injury.
“I believe he should have been in the WarGames match. He should have been a surprise, so it was added that he would be in the WarGames match. He would be the last man against The Bloodline in that match, as he and Sami Zayn . If it does, it could cost him dearly. I think he’ll have to replace that one and come out with a new one on Friday.” h/t Ringside News
Kevin Owens unfortunately suffered a right knee injury at Sunday’s WWE house show during his match with Austin Theory.
It has been confirmed that the injury is an MCL sprain (Wrestling Observer).
2022 has been a huge year for Owens, especially after he welcomed Stone Cold Steve Austin back to the ring at WrestleMania in April, main-eventing Night One with the two stars. We at Sportskeeda wish Kevin Owens a speedy recovery.
Former WWE Superstar Feels Smackdown Performer Should End Roman Reigns’ Title Run
For over 800 days, Head of the Table has ruled WWE as the Universal Champion and has been the Undisputed Champion since WrestleMania 38.
With several stars failing in their attempts to defeat Roman Reigns, former WWE star EC3 recently said on Sportskeeda’s The Wrestling Outlaws, that Sami Zayn could be the one to end Roman’s title reign.
“So, why can’t it go up? If people are reacting to it, what kind of moment can be maintained if it goes all the way, and he ends up defeating Roman Reigns? WWE’s Longest Rules in history. To happen because it’s naturally formed, without any intention of ‘Yeah, we’ll throw them away, whatever.'” h/t Sportskeeda
Roman Reigns’ most recent title defense came on November 5 when he faced YouTuber-turned-pro wrestler Logan Paul at the Crown Jewel in Saudi Arabia, in what was a very entertaining match.
