According to Fightful Select, WWE restructured several contracts ahead of the COVID-19 pandemic, and Owens’ contract was one of those deals that changed. His contract is now set to expire in January 2022. It is currently unknown who else had their contracts altered.
“Fightful has been made aware that one WWE contract expires much sooner than originally thought by the public. Kevin Owens did an interview in May of 2018 with TVA Sports where he’d stated that he’d signed a new 5-year contract that would carry him into 2023. However, as it turns out, that deal is actually now up in January 2022, according to WWE sources.”
There is no official word as to why WWE chose to shorten Owens’ contract or if the company altered any of his deals to accommodate this change.
