– It looks like Kevin Owens will need to lose some weight or else his WWE career will take a hit.
The word going around is that Vince McMahon recently told Kevin Owens to lose weight or else he’ll lose his spot in the company.
Owens’ weight has long been an issue with WWE higher-ups, and they may have had Randy Orton ridicule him for it once on live television.
On Raw on August 10, 2015, Orton made a remark to Owens about his look, asking him during a promo if he put on some weight.
Orton said, “Kevin, have you put on weight lately?” Orton then made a motion suggesting a big belly. Owens simply replied “no” and Orton moved on with the promo.

It’s not uncommon for NXT talent to work as security guards at live events in Florida, but it’s rare for the women. She likely volunteered to be seen as a team player and study matches.
Ripley hasn’t worked a match in over a month, with her last bout taking place on April 21 in a house show loss to Reina Gonzalez. She doesn’t appear to be injured. The reason for her absence is probably because NXT is stacked with female talent and there are only a few spots per show for women to wrestle.
