Backstage News On Kevin Owens And Other WWE Stars Absent From TV

There are backstage updates about a few WWE Superstars’ absences from TV.

According to Fightful Select, “creative is being cooked up” for Kevin Owens for plans moving forward with him. Owens has been absent from TV, most recently from last week’s episode of “Raw,”. It was noted in the report, that Triple H was tied to Owens on screen for his WWE Universal Title win. Owens won the title on August 29, 2016, on “Raw.” He would lose the title to Goldberg at Fastlane in March 2017.

Lacey Evans was pulled from the July 29 episode of “SmackDown.” During the episode, it was said that Evans wasn’t cleared to compete, but Fightful was told that there were no immediate creative plans for her. When Evans return this year was “chaotic and directionless.” Evans was said to be a personal favorite of Vince McMahon and was very hands-on and worked directly with Evans when she came to “Raw.”

There is an update on Omos. Omos has not been on WWE “Raw” the last several weeks, but it’s said that he’s still on the road with WWE and is being managed by MVP. He faced Ezekiel on Monday’s tapings of WWE ‘Main Event.”

Fightful was also told that several talents are in the same boat and are waiting to learn what they will be doing under the new regime. Several have had meetings directly with Triple H about their future.

As reported earlier, Triple H is not expected to stop anytime soon in reshaping the roster to add depth. So far, due to his new roles in WWE, Karrion Kross, Scarlett Bordeaux, and Dakota Kai have made their returns. Iyo Sky also re-signed with the company.
