Kevin Owens: Why I Re-Signed With WWE

Owens reveals why he's sticking with WWE

While Kevin Owens had previously teased jumping to All Elite Wrestling when his WWE contract expired, the former Universal Champion has signed a new multi-year deal with Vince McMahon's company. The new deal is reportedly for three years for $2-3 million per year

Owens confirmed he has re-signed with WWE during an appearance on Pat Laprade's Anti-Pods de la Lutte and The Prizefighter explained why he decided to stay with the company. 

"I will just say that it still ends on January 31, but not 2022. I will be there for several more years. The decision was rather easy because it was really the best thing for my family. When it comes to that, it's always a fairly easy decision. The WWE has been my home for seven years, so I have a sense of belonging. Basically, I spent most of my career there. When you look at all the wrestling companies I've wrestled in, WWE, that's where I've been the longest, that's where I need to be for the next few years. That's how I felt and that's the decision I made," Owens said (translated using Google Translate).

KO's new deal reportedly makes him one of the top earners in WWE. Only a few wrestlers, including Brock Lesnar and Roman Reigns currently earn over $3 million per year.
