WWE announced that Owens will take on Murphy in the kickoff show for Extreme Rules, set to begin later today. Owens has been helping Rey Mysterio in his feud with Rollins as those two will also face off at Extreme Rules.
Kevin Owens has rebelled against The Monday Night Messiah and his disciple since the preacher’s first words on Raw. KO will get another chance to assert his dominance over the red brand’s antagonists in a clash with Murphy at The Horror Show at WWE Extreme Rules.
Owens has been vocal about his admiration for Rey Mysterio and defeated Rollins in a WrestleMania rematch this past week as Rey, his son Dominik and Aleister Black lurked around The Architect.
Will KO continue to lead his successful rebellion against The Monday Night Messiah’s movement? Or will Murphy help Owens see the light with a moving victory?
