He serves a purpose. We are rapidly approaching the end of the year and WWE is not exactly waiting around on the 2022 slate of shows. WWE will be presenting Day 1 on January 1 and the show already has a main event set. The main event will be a triple threat match, and it turns out there is a rather specific reason behind the company setting up the match as they did.
This week on Monday Night Raw, Kevin Owens defeated WWE Champion Big E. in a non-title match. As a result, Owens was added to the already announced WWE Title match between Big E. and Seth Rollins. According to Wrestling Observer Radio, Owens was added to take the fall in the match, which will allow the Rollins vs. Big E. feud to continue. Owens’ WWE contract is expected to expire just after the Royal Rumble in January and it is not clear where he will sign next.
This should be good. Check out all three in action:
Opinion: This shouldn’t be the biggest surprise as there is currently no guarantee that Owens will be sticking around in the long term. WWE seems to be using him to move things forward with the people who will be sticking around, and now they have a way to do so. The match should be good, though I’m not sure how much drama there was to it in the first place.
