• Original Return Plan For Kevin Owens Revealed
Former Universal Champion Kevin Owens returned from injury last month and was immediately booked in the WWE Championship match at FastLane 2019 against Daniel Bryan (which he lost).
According to PWInsider, original plan for Owens was to return on the post-WrestleMania 35 edition of RAW/SmackDown.
However, WWE officials rushed his return to further the storyline with Kofi Kingston, where he was scheduled to be screwed out of the WWE Title picture.
Owens is currently not booked for a match at WrestleMania 35.
