Kevin Owens is certainly one of the top Superstars in WWE after making his debut in NXT back in 2014 and then making his main roster debut in 2015, where he feuded with John Cena and even defeated him. Kevin Owens also recently dropped a cryptic AEW bombshell.
With former WWE NXT Superstar Adam Cole making his way to AEW at the AEW All Out pay-per-view, many fans have been wondering if more top talents will take their skills to AEW as well. Thanks to Kevin Owens’ recent tweet, many fans began speculating that he will make his way to the company as well.
To add to the rumors, Kevin Owens once again dropped a huge hint regarding his AEW status. The former Universal Champion made a slight tweak to his Twitter account, which definitely did not go unnoticed by fans. He did something similar to what The Young Bucks have done on the social networking platform.
However, all speculations were put to rest after it was revealed that Kevin Owens signed a new contract with WWE. It was said to be a deal of multiple years and worth millions of dollars. Dave Meltzer reported on the latest Wrestling Observer Radio that Kevin Owens will be making between $2 and $3 million a year.
“He signed a three-year deal with WWE. Actually, I believe it was a couple of weeks ago when this happened. I’m sure they’ll be more tomorrow on it, but it’s a very good money deal. I think the feeling is that it was a better deal than he could get in AEW. It’s in the 2 to 3 million, in that range.”
