Kevin Owens and his WWE contract status have been a topic of discussion in recent times for the professional wrestling world. Fans have wondered whether he was interested in joining his Mt. Rushmore stablemates in All Elite Wrestling especially after plenty of former WWE stars joined the rival brand. During his recent promo on Raw, the superstar himself made references to the controversy.

With his contract expiring in February of 2022, nobody knew whether Kevin Owens will end up signing his next contract. WWE Officials have tried to keep him and his best friend Sami Zayn happy in recent times to keep them under their banner. It appears that those efforts could have paid off as at least one of them is going nowhere.

WWE Raw Superstar Kevin Owens Signs Multi-Year Deal With The Company 1

As per the reports of Fightful Select, Kevin Owens has re-signed with the WWE. Details on the new contract have not been confirmed as of this writing, but it’s likely to be a multi-year deal given that he’s a top superstar from the WWE Raw brand. WWE officials reportedly made an “excellent offer” for the former Universal Champion to stay, and they are said to be “over the moon” about this re-signing.

WWE’s offer was reported better for Kevin Owens

“Fightful learned several weeks ago that WWE was very interested in retaining Kevin Owens, and made him what sources in the company was “an excellent offer” to stay. WWE sources that we spoke to said they were over the moon about retaining Owens.”

Insiders at AEW reported that they didn’t think the company would offer something similar to Kevin Owens to that of WWE. Talent within the company says that Tony Khan and co may have been interested in him, but ultimately WWE offered the top superstar a better deal and thereby retained him.

As reported earlier, the Canadian Superstar’s original WWE deal was originally set to expire much later, but in 2019 he restructured it to expire by the end of January 2022. WWE then started negotiating a new deal with him starting from late 2021.

As of now, Kevin Owens is set to compete at the WWE Day 1 pay-per-view on New Year’s Day, in the Fatal-4-Way WWE Title Match alongside Bobby Lashley, Seth Rollins, and WWE Champion Big E.
