Before yesterday’s episode of SmackDown Live went on air, the United States Champion Kevin Owens made a tweet, revealing that the ‘Thumb Of America’ is broken.
Though in the tweet as seen below, Owens noted that he will not be missing any time due to this injury as he is the ‘toughest man alive”:

It’s not known when or where Owens suffered this injury but considering that he wrestled Shinsuke Nakamura on SmackDown Live this week, his injury does not appear to be very serious.
Kevin Owens is currently scheduled to be a part of the upcoming Money In The Bank Ladder match, and he is rumoured to feud with Shinsuke Nakamura in the upcoming time.
These rumours seem to be coming true as Nakamura’s clear victory over the current US Champion this week should put him in the poll position to become the new #1 contender for the coveted title.
