Hopefully not a sign of things to come. With 2019 now in the books, there are a lot of things that we can both look forward to and look back on. The new year is a time of both reflection and planning, with a bunch of fun celebrations thrown in. That can make for some interesting times, but it can also make for some funny accidents provided there isn’t much damage.
Kevin Owens certainly had an up and down 2019. The year saw him return from a long injury and turn face, resulting in quite a strong reaction from the fans. He is now in a feud with Seth Rollins, which seems to be one of the biggest on Monday Night Raw at the moment. That should mean things are going to be looking up for him in the future, but he didn’t quite start 2020 with a positive bang.
Owens revealed via Twitter that he accidentally shot himself in the crotch with a confetti popper during a New Year’s Eve celebration. He said that it hurt a lot but does not seem to have any serious injury. Owens’ most recent televised match took place on the December 16 Monday Night Raw in a street fight against Mojo Rawley. There is no word on what he will be doing at the Royal Rumble.
2020 just started off strong for me.
I shot myself in the balls with a confetti popper because I was holding it upside down.
It hurt. A lot.
My wife put it on Instagram.
It’s all uphill from here, I’d say!
Happy New Year!

Well of course it was filmed. Check out Owens accidentally shooting himself and his funny reaction:
Opinion: How can you not laugh at something like this? It’s just an accident and something a little embarrassing but it is probably something that has happened to all of us at some point. It’s the kind of funny thing that Owens and his family will probably bring up for years and that is the idea of such a holiday celebration. He seemed to laugh at it too and that’s the right idea.
Did this make you laugh? What do you see Owens doing next? Let us know in the comments below.
