As announced on his Twitter page, HHH will be replacing Owens on a house show in Chile. This is HHH’s first match since “Wrestlemania XXXIII” when he lost to Seth Rollins.

HHH and Owens certainly have history together.
While not confirmed, it seems that HHH will be facing United States Champion Baron Corbin, who has called HHH out on Twitter before their match.
Pick a fight you can win! Just a hint though, I would stay away from the United States champion.

Finally, Owens has confirmed that he left the tour due to personal reasons, meaning that he is neither sick nor injured.
Opinion: This is an unfortunate circumstance that seems to have been rectified as well as it could have been. HHH is quite the replacement for anyone as he’s a major star and a legitimate attraction. I’d like to think that most fans will understand that Owens needs to be with his family and will be happy to see one of the biggest stars ever instead.
