“Due to the circumstances that happened over the last week there, with… the positive coronavirus test that happened in the company, I thought it was just wiser for me to stay with my family,” Kevin Owens told WWE’s The Bump.
“I told the people in charge my decision, and they didn’t even flinch, they were like, ‘Yeah, okay,’ and that’s it. There’s no pushback, I mean I don’t think they’d push back on anybody, but also, they know once I make my mind up [about] something, that’s kinda the way it’s gonna be, and they were respectful of my decision. And I’m glad I took it because I think it was the best thing to do for my family.”
