It appears we have an update on the status of Kevin Owens which may put some major plans in serious jeopardy.
Kevin Owens appeared to have suffered an MCL sprain during a November 13 house show match. This would more than likely put Owens out of action and mean he may not be able to make his planned spot in the War Games match at Survivor Series which takes place next weekend on November 26.
During the latest latest Wrestling Observer Radio, Dave Meltzer proceed an update on Owens’ condition stating that he’d heard that Owens is currently “not moving very well.”
Meltzer went on to add:
“He’s doing rehab at the Performance Center. It was confirmed that the main event on the WWE pay-per-view, Survivor Series, was going to be the Bloodline – Roman Reigns, the Usos, Sami Zayn and Solo Sikoa – against Butch, Sheamus, Ridge Holland, Drew McIntyre and Kevin Owens.
“However, because Kevin Owens suffered an injury, which the last I heard was a sprained MCL… he was gonna get it checked out. I’d heard Monday morning, and I haven’t heard anything since Monday morning, that it had not been checked out. But he’s rehabbing it. I don’t know if he’ll be ready for the pay-per-view or not.
If they do an angle on SmackDown on Friday and throw somebody else in, that tells you that he wasn’t ready. I do know from somebody… I did hear that he’s not moving very well. So he better heal up quick if he’s gonna make that pay-per-view. And like I said, I don’t know the situation, whether he will or he won’t. I haven’t heard. But that’s the basic situation.”– Dave Meltzer
