Next one up? One of the most interesting wrestling stories of the last year and a half has been the massive exodus of wrestlers leaving WWE. Some of these moves have involved some big names, including former World Champions. That has changed the wrestling landscape and now it seems that we are getting ready to see another big name go on the free agent market.

According to Fightful Select, former Universal Champion Kevin Owens’ WWE contract is set to expire in January. Owens announced that he had signed a five year deal with the company in May 2018, but the deal was restructured early last year. As a result, it will expire early next year instead of in May 2023. WWE is said to know that Owens’ deal is coming up and there is no word on what Owens plans to do in the future.

You might need to enjoy him while he lasts. Check out Owens’ time in WWE:

Opinion: I don’t know what Owens is going to do but the massive exodus might be continuing. WWE has lost some serious star power in recent months and I’m curious to see just how bad things are going to get. WWE is not in any serious danger anytime soon, but at some point all of these moves are going to make a difference. Owens very well may stay with WWE, but the fact that he might go elsewhere makes it all the more fascinating.

What do you think of Owens? Where will he sign next? Let us know in the comments below.
