Kevin Owens may have been fired on television during the build to WrestleMania 34, but he isn’t leaving WWE anytime soon.
During a recent interview with Pat Laprade of TVA Sports, Owens said he signed a new five-year contract with WWE.
Here is a rough translation of what Owens said in French:
“I do not see why I will not finish my career with WWE. I just recently signed a new five-year contract with them. I do not intend to go anywhere (when) my contract will end. If the WWE wants to continue, if I want to continue and my family is ready for me to continue, I do not see why it would not happen.”
Owens also talked about being back on Raw following last month’s Superstar Shake-up.
“I’ve been a guy from Raw who’s been on SmackDown for a year. I have never been a SmackDown guy. I never felt at home at SmackDown. I’m happy to be back on Raw. I have a sense of belonging on Raw,” Owens said.
“When the brand split arrived, it was Raw that I found myself on, so I think my feeling comes from there. I made my Raw debut against John Cena… It seemed like I was an outsider on SmackDown and I was never able to recover from it. There are guys we associate more with Raw or others with SmackDown.”
Owens also talked about the month of May being good luck for him, the Greatest Royal Rumble, and the experience of wrestling in his hometown of Marieville, Quebec, Canada. You can read the full interview here.
