WWE WarGames was an NXT-based event until Triple H became Chief Content Officer and brought the event to the main roster. Tonight, The Game brought in Kevin Owens as the fifth and final participant in the massive main event of the November 26 premium live event.
Kevin Owens returned to SmackDown and started a WWE WarGames feud with The Bloodline. The former Universal Champion will join The Brawling Brutes (Sheamus, Ridge Holland, Butch) and Drew McIntyre inside a double-caged structure against The Bloodline.
This will be Owens’ second appearance at a premium live event featuring the WWE WarGames Main Event. The Canadian was the final member of Team Ciampa against The Undisputed Era in the main event of NXT TakeOver: WarGames on November 23, 2019.
The reveal came as a huge shock to everyone inside the Allstate Arena in Rosemont, Illinois. Owens entered the ring and immediately eliminated Bobby Fish, Roderick Strong, and Kyle O’Reilly. The former NXT Champion also faced Adam Cole.
Team Ciampa won the match when The Prizefighter dropped Adam Cole with a giant slam on top of the cage through a table set up inside the ring.
Kevin Owens returns to face The Bloodline as WWE WarGames main event set
As of Friday, the status of Kevin Owens at Survivor Series was up in the air. The WWE Superstar recently suffered an MCL tear during a house show, and it has raised a lot of concerns regarding his presence in the ring.
The main event of the latest episode of WWE SmackDown saw the return of the former Universal Champion. Starr confronted Roman Reigns, but hesitated to attack former best friend Sami Zayn, allowing The Tribal Chief to take him down with a Superman Punch.
The final moments of the segment saw KO counter a spear with a knee to the face and capitalize on his momentum with a stunner to the head of the table. Owens joined the rest of the babyfaces inside the ring as The Bloodline looked on in shock.
It remains to be seen who will emerge victorious next Saturday at WWE WarGames.
