Kevin Owens Said To Be “Okay” Following Major Injury Scare

Kevin Owens & The Bloodline

Kevin Owens has been riding high since reuniting with Sami Zayn in the lead-up to WrestleMania 39.

Once the long-time friends got back on the same page, they defeated The Usos in the main event of night one of the spectacular to become Undisputed WWE Tag Team Champions. However, that hasn’t meant that their issues with The Bloodline are over.

The two sides have continued to go to war on WWE television, and Owens and Zayn are set to team with Matt Riddle to take on The Usos and Solo Sikoa at Backlash.

Although WWE’s hearts were undoubtedly in mouths in recent days after Owens seemingly suffered an ankle injury at a live event.

In the Wrestling Observer Newsletter Sunday Update, Dave Meltzer noted that Owens was helped to the back following his match, in Fort Wayne, IN, and was limping later in the show.

“Kevin Owens appeared to injure his ankle last night in Fort Wayne, IN. It came during an Owens & Sami Zayn vs. Usos tag team title match.

We’re not sure where but multiple people brought up that it was hurt during the match, he was limping and needed help to the back. He did come back, still limping, for the Cody Rhodes vs Solo Sikoa main event.

We’ve heard nothing official on whether it was storyline or legit at this point. We’ll probably know if it’s serious based on if he works in Toledo tonight.”

Kevin Owens “Good To Go”

Thankfully the injury doesn’t appear to be serious and Kevin Owens wrestled as planned in Toledo on April 23rd. Speaking on Wrestling Observer Radio, Meltzer added that Owens is fit to wrestle on the April 28th episode of SmackDown where he and Zayn will defend their tag team titles against The Usos.

“He worked tonight in Toledo, so he’s okay. He hurt it last night in Fort Wayne, but he’s okay. Like I said, he wrestled tonight, he did a run-in tonight, so good enough (for that). And he was not limping at the show tonight as far as I know.

So he’s good to go probably for Friday’s tag team title match on SmackDown.”

April 28th will also mark the start of the WWE Draft.
