Reason Kevin Owens Turned On The New Day Reportedly Revealed

SmackDown Live saw a new challenger for the WWE Championship unearthed...

During this week's episode of WWE SmackDown Live, honorary New Day member Big O turned on Kofi Kingston and Xavier Woods following the WWE Champion's win over Shinsuke Nakamura.

Kevin Owens had only joined the world famous five-time tag champs during last week's blue brand show after Big E was ruled out of action with an injury - we still don't know when E is expected to be back in action.

It appears the reason for Owens' sudden turn on his new pals is down to the currently undisclosed injury suffered by Daniel Bryan at WrestleMania 35.

According to Dave Meltzer on a recent episode of Wrestling Observer Radio, a 'Mania rematch was supposed to be taking place at Money In The Bank between Kofi and Bryan, but because the former Champion won't be back in time for the event, the Owens heel turn was done.

WWE are reportedly keeping their cards close to their chest on this one, as no official word has been given on the planet's champion's wellbeing.
