• Vince McMahon Drops RAW Wrestler Out Of Storyline Due To Rey Mysterio
According to the Wrestling Observer, Kevin Owens was scheduled to continue his feud with Seth Rollins and be involved with Dominik Mysterio on TV, but Vince McMahon dropped Owens out of his feud with Rollins when Rey Mysterio agreed to stay with WWE.
This is the reason why Owens didn’t make the save for Dominik on last night’s RAW, as he’s no longer a part of that feud, and it’s all about Seth Rollins – Rey / Dominik Mysterio.
Owens lost to Randy Orton in the main event match of last night’s RAW.
As of this writing, there are no plans for Owens to have a match at SummerSlam 2020 (although they can always announce him for a match on the Kickoff Show at the very last minute).
