Kevin Owens is staying with WWE.
Fightful Select reported on Wednesday that Kevin Owens had re-signed a multi-year deal with WWE. His contract was set to expire on January 31, 2022.
Speaking to Pat Laprade and Kevin Raphael on their TVA Sports’ podcast les Anti-Pods de la Lutte, Owens confirmed the report and commented on his decision to re-sign.
“I'll just say that my contract still ends on January 31, but not 2022. I will still be in WWE for several years, The decision was pretty easy because it was the best thing for my family, really. When it comes to that, it's always a pretty easy decision to take. WWE has been my home for seven years now, so I have a sense of belonging. Basically, I spent the majority of my career here. When you look at all the wrestling companies I've wrestled for, 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," said Owens.
Fightful Select reported that WWE gave Owens, "an excellent offer" to stay.
Owens is set to challenge for the WWE Championship in a fatal four-way match at WWE Day 1 against Big E, Bobby Lashley and Seth Rollins.
The full interview with Owens on les Anti-Pods de la Lutte will premiere on Tuesday.
