Kevin Owens: WWE Feels Like My Home

Kevin Owens re-signed with WWE in late 2021

When news broke that Kevin Owens’ WWE deal was set to expire in 2021, many assumed Owens would depart and join AEW. However Owens re-signed with the company, on a big money contract.

Asked why he decided to stay with WWE, Owens said the following during a conversation with ESPN:

“A big part of it, honestly, was that Vince McMahon made it pretty clear to me that he wanted me to stay,” Owens told ESPN. “And, you know, I’ve been in WWE for seven years at this point. You know, I have a lot of friends everywhere else in wrestling, but there is a whole side of WWE that people don’t get to see, whether it’s the production crew, you know, the camera people, the stage manager, the creative team, all these people.

“They’re all very special people and you know, they’re a part of my family. My extended family now. My professional family, if you want to call it that. So that, those were all factors that, that, that led to me, you know, staying put, because Vince made it clear he wanted me to stay. It feels like my home and all those other people there that, you know, if I wasn’t there, I wouldn’t get to see anymore and that was just like, you know, it just seemed like the right move. That’s really all there is to it.”
