Report: Kevin Owens Re-Signs With WWE On Multi-Year Deal

Owens is sticking with WWE

Kevin Owens has re-signed with WWE on a multi-year deal, according to a report from Fightful Select

Owens' WWE contract was set to expire on January 31, 2022, and the company opened negotiations with KO in the autumn of 2021. 

WWE were said to be "very interested" in re-signing Owens and Vince McMahon's company made him "an excellent offer" to keep him around, letting him know they were eager for him to stay. With KO having now re-signed, those within WWE are reportedly "over the moon."

It emerged back in September that Owens' contract was set to expire in January 2022 and the former Universal Champion even teased jumping to AEW, tweeting the coordinates to Mount Rushmore, the name of his PWG faction with Adam Cole and The Young Bucks. 

Fightful noted that AEW talent they spoke to thought the promotion would have been interested in Owens but they didn't believe AEW would "realistically match" what WWE would offer KO to re-sign. 

Kevin Owens signed with WWE in 2014 and has held several pieces of gold in the company, including the Universal Title, Intercontinental Championship, United States Championship and NXT Title. He is currently featured in the main event picture on Monday Night Raw and will challenge for the WWE Title at the Day 1 pay-per-view on January 1, 2022.
