• Jim Cornette Explains Why SmackDown Wrestler Will Join AEW
We recently reported that WWE SmackDown Superstar Kevin Owens is probably going to join All Elite Wrestling, once his current WWE contract comes to an end.
On his weekly podcast, Old School WWF Manager Jim Cornette addressed those rumors by saying the following:
“There can’t be any doubt that a guy like Steen (Kevin Owens) that always wanted to do exactly what he wanted to do would want to go to a company where he will be allowed to do almost everything he wants to do.”
Cornette & Owens have a history together from their days in Ring of Honor and they’re not exactly on good terms with each other at all.
Owens’ WWE contract is set to expire on January 31, 2022.
