Many have since speculated on the possible reason for the hiatus. Is he burnt out? Injured? It seems that the real reason is quite simple actually.

According to Dave Meltzer on the latest Wrestling Observer Radio, Owens hiatus is storyline related and not motivated by personal reasons.
“He’s taking time off, but I was told it’s storyline-related. So there you go.”
This is interesting considering that the WWE return to touring next month onwards. Owens is one of the biggest names the company has to offer and could easily help them sell a number of tickets.
Instead, they seem to be building towards something. A new character maybe? Or perhaps even a heel turn. Who knows? At this point we can only wait and watch.
