Kevin Owens Injured for an Extended Period

On a recent episode of Raw, tensions escalated between The Judgment Day faction and WWE Tag Team Champions Kevin Owens and Sami Zayn. During the show in Tampa, Kevin Owens suffered a brutal attack orchestrated by Damian Priest and Rhea Ripley, leaving him needing medical attention.

However, it appears that Owens' injury is not a recent development. Sources indicate that he has been dealing with a fractured rib for quite some time. The night's events unfolded with a one-on-one match between Sami Zayn and Dirty Dominik Mysterio for the latter's coveted NXT North American Championship.

Given the explosive personalities involved, it was no surprise that chaos ensued, resulting in Owens, Priest, and Ripley being ejected from ringside. Seizing the opportunity, The Judgment Day duo pounced on Owens in the entranceway, distracting Zayn long enough for Mysterio to secure the victory and retain his title.

Following the match, Zayn displayed genuine concern for his tag team partner as Kevin Owens was seen being attended to by medical personnel backstage. Wrestling Observer Radio's Dave Meltzer confirmed the severity of Owens' injury, stating that he has been working through a fractured rib for an extended period.

The situation had been carefully managed, with WWE waiting for an appropriate time to address the issue, and now the moment has come for Owens to take a much-needed break to recover. It remains uncertain whether Kevin Owens will be forced to miss any ring time due to the injury.

However, it's worth noting that the WWE Tag Team Championship is not scheduled to be defended at the upcoming SummerSlam event, which is less than two weeks away. The absence of a title defense could allow Owens to recuperate without affecting the status of the championship.

Kevin Owens' Injury Sparks Concern

Fans and fellow wrestlers are undoubtedly concerned for Kevin Owens' well-being, as he has been an integral part of the WWE roster, showcasing his incredible talent and charisma. As more details about the extent of his injury emerge, the WWE Universe will anxiously await news on when they can expect to see Owens back in action.

For now, it's clear that Kevin Owens' health takes precedence, and the wrestling community sends its best wishes for his swift recovery. As the situation develops, updates regarding his condition and potential return to the ring will likely surface in the coming days.
