You mean they didn’t think it through? Remember last month when Kevin Owens returned to WWE and had a pay per view title match? Remember that match being awesome? Now do you remember Owens doing anything other than hosting an episode of the Kevin Owens Show since then? It’s almost like Owens was brought back up too soon and it’s become a problem. So what has been going on?
According to Mike Johnson on PW Insider Elite Audio, the original plans were to bring Owens back up on either the Monday Night Raw or SmackDown Live after WrestleMania 35. This obviously did not happen and Owens was brought back to television in a hurry with no plans for him. At the moment, Owens has nothing scheduled for WrestleMania and has only wrestled in a tag match since his title match at Fastlane.
Owens certainly hasn’t lost a step. Check out him talking as only he can:
Opinion: This is modern WWE as only they can make it happen. You have an outstanding talent like Owens, who has been on the shelf for months and then you bring him back from the injured list. Ok, cool, now what do we do with him? Apparently absolutely nothing, because all that mattered was that one moment of bringing him back. This kind of thinking amazes me and you really should expect better, or at least more competent, from WWE.
What should be done next? When should he have been brought back? Let us know in the comments below.
