Kevin Owens didn’t take on Ezekiel, Elias, or Elrod on Monday Night Raw as advertised, and now he’s made it known how he feels about missing the show.
Ever since Ezekiel first came on the scene the night after WrestleMania 38, Kevin Owens has been on a quest to prove that he and his older brother Elias are one in the same. For weeks, Owens has been enraged at the insistence that the two brothers are different people, even going as far as to administer a lie detector test and to secretly collect some of Ezekiel’s DNA (however, the results of the DNA test were corrupted by barbecue sauce).
Last week, Elias made his return to the red brand and reunited with his brother in a segment that has received nearly universal praise from fans. Kevin Owens insisted the two used movie magic to convince the crowd that they were brothers and not the same person, and he demanded to face any member of the family on the June 27th episode of Raw, whether it be Ezekiel, Elias, or an unseen brother named Elrod.
However, despite being advertised up until the start of the show, it was announced during Raw that the Kevin Owens match had to be rescheduled, and we’ll have to wait to see which family member he faces at a later date.
Taking to social media after the show, Kevin Owens said that he was not in Texas for the show as originally planned, and said it was because he didn’t want to go.
“I didn’t want to go to Texas so I didn’t go. Leave me alone.”
I didn’t want to go to Texas so I didn’t go.
Leave me alone.

Meanwhile, the June 27th episode did feature the return of John Cena to the red brand as he thanked the WWE Universe for allowing him to celebrate 20 years since his WWE debut. He said that he does not know when he’ll wrestle again, despite reports that he’s set to face United States Champion Theory at SummerSlam.
