Kevin Owens Unsure About His Pro Wrestling Future Beyond Current WWE Contract
Kevin Owens talks about uncertainty regarding the remainder of his career.
In a recent interview with the Toronto Sun, WWE Superstar Kevin Owens spoke about his uncertainty over his wrestling future. Having previously stated that he'd like to wrestle for another five to 10 years, Owens admitted he's not sure if that's the case anymore, adding:
“I look at things and I don’t know where I stand going beyond the next year and a half. I know I want to be involved in wrestling. I know I want to be involved in the WWE and I know I have a place here. I just don’t know where it is exactly. Maybe it’s still in the ring, maybe it’s not. I don’t know.
“I think for the next year and a half, my focus is just on enjoying everything I do as much as possible. There’s not really a worry about winning a title or main-eventing WrestleMania or any of that stuff anymore, which are the dreams that everybody has, because I’ve been so blessed and I’ve gotten to do all of that. So I just want to have fun and I want to give people fun times to remember me by."
Owens has held various titles in WWE, including the Universal, Intercontinental and United States championships. He is currently one-half of the Undisputed WWE Tag Team title holders alongside Sami Zayn.
He has headlined night one of WrestleMania for the past two editions of the event. This year saw Owens and Zayn team up to dethrone The Usos, becoming tag champions in the process. The first night of last year's WrestleMania was headlined by Owens vs. Steve Austin, the Hall of Famer's first match since 2003.
Owens clarified that while he's unsure about his wrestling future, he doesn't want to rule out a longer run entirely:
“Whether this is the end for my wrestling, I don’t know and I don’t want to sound dramatic. I don’t want to say this is a retirement speech or anything because I might still be wrestling for ten years. I have no idea. My thought process right now is just to try to enjoy the next year and a half as much as I possibly can because I don’t know what’s on the other side. That’s really all I’m worrying about.”
