After a confrontation between Shane McMahon and Kevin Owens over the issue of Owens' firing on SmackDown, McMahon seems to have changed his stance a bit on the matter.
In a tweet by McMahon, he has "allowed" Owens to wrestle in an upcoming WWE Live Events tour that is making stops in Hawaii, China and the Philippines. This comes after Owens delivered a wrongful termination lawsuit to McMahon on the September 17 episode of SmackDown.
Below is what WWE wrote about the news, including McMahon's tweet.
Last week, Shane McMahon appeared to shut the door on Kevin Owens’ future with WWE by firing the former Universal Champion over his performance as a Special Guest Referee.
During last night’s SmackDown LIVE, KO emerged in the crowd and delivered “The Best in the World” a record wrongful termination lawsuit. Did this prompt McMahon to crack open the door on Owens’ future?

Although Owens will be part of WWE’s upcoming WWE Live Events tour, his future on the blue brand remains unclear. Will we soon see Owens back on SmackDown LIVE, or is Shane-O-Mac setting Owens up for an even bigger fall?
