A former WWE Universal Champion’s contract is reportedly expiring sooner rather than later.
Sapp notes that, in a 2018 interview, Owens explained that he had signed a new five-year deal, but this report contradicts that situation. Per Sapp, WWE restructed multiple contracts before the pandemic, and tne end date of Owens’ deal was affected. It’s currently unknown why this change was made, and more details about the contract are unavailable at this time.
Owens is the latest WWE star who has made headlines due to his contract expiring, following in the footsteps of Adam Cole and Pete Dunne. Cole has officially signed with AEW, but Dunne remains with WWE, as of this writing.
