Kevin Owens has nine months left on his WWE deal, although he can’t see himself leaving the company.

In December 2021, Kevin Owens put to bed speculation over his future by committing to a new contract with WWE. ‘The Prizefighter’ has remained a prominent figure on SmackDown since extending his deal almost three years ago, but it appears that the 39-year-old may need to re-negotiate terms with the company before the end of this year.

Speaking to the Metro prior to Backlash, Owens revealed that he has nine months left on his current contract, and that he isn’t taking anything for granted.

“I really don’t take anything for granted, I’ve nine months left on my contact, and I don’t know what can happen from here on out. That’s just life. If I’ve learned anything over the last few years, it’s that nothing is guaranteed. I’ve learned that through some very unfortunate events, we’ve lost so many good people that was never expected. That’s just one example of how I do not take anything for granted, how I look at things now.”

With his contract expiry less than a year away, questions may be asked over Owens’ future. However, he’d go on to emphasise the bond he has with many people in WWE, saying that he can’t imagine himself working away from the company after being there for around a decade.

“This has been my home for 10 years and it’s beyond the locker room. There’s some very, very, very special people that work behind the scenes that I’ve become very close with, and I really can’t imagine not seeing them as part of my life,”

While it doesn’t seem as if Kevin Owens will leave WWE in the near future, his contract status leaves the door open should he wish to do so in nine months time. As such, it’ll surely be a big priority for the company to agree terms with him before his current deal expires.

As always, we’ll aim to provide any further updates on Kevin Owens’ contract status as soon as we hear more.
