In the last few hours, there has been a lot of talk about the former WWE Universal Champion, Kevin Owens, who's said to have signed a contract renewal with the Stamford-based company, which expired at the end of this year, with the Canadian who could be in about to leave the McMahon company, perhaps to land on new rings, such as those of All Elite Wreslting, in the company of many old colleagues released.
While several athletes have voluntarily asked to be released, to find new opportunities on the Khan family square, many others found themselves without work overnight, with several Superstars who, however, took little to find their future beyond.
out of WWE. One of those who will almost certainly remain for at least two-three years in the McMahon-owned family's wrestling rings, is precisely Owens, who has signed a fresh contract to remain firm on the TV screens of the McMahon company, but exactly: how much will Kevin Owens earn with this new agreement signed?

As reported by the well-known Dave Meltzer of the Wrestling Observer, in his latest newsletter of the site, the numbers of the contract signed by Kevin Owens also emerged, with the Canadian who would settle among the top ten highest paid athletes by WWE, even with this new contract.
In his speech, Meltzer in fact stated: "He has signed a two to three year deal with WWE. Currently, I believe the signature came a couple of weeks ago. I'm sure more will be heard tomorrow, but it's a very good economic deal.
I think it's definitely taller than he could get with the AEW. It is between two and three million dollars, in that range." Considering that Roman Reigns and Brock Lesnar alone take a salary greater than that amount, settling between five million and more, it seems that Owens has therefore become one of the Superstars with higher income than the rest of the roster, with his future in AEW or IMPACT Wrestling, which would thus be averted by the McMahon company.
Back in early 2016, Owens spoke about how he was bound to become WWE Champion, sooner or later: "I think I’m already in consideration for that. I’m being put in the ring with guys like Roman Reigns, I’m main-eventing a lot of the live events, and I’ve only been here for seven months.
I don’t think me becoming WWE world champion is at all out of the realm of possibility. It could happen at any time. I think it might be something that’s very shocking to a lot of people, but I’ve been doing this for 15 years.
I feel like I’m exactly where I’m supposed to be, and I honestly think whether it’s sooner or later, I will be WWE champion,” said Owens.
