Backstage News On Why Kevin Owens Missed WWE Raw
Despite being advertised for “WWE Raw” Kevin Owens was not on the show this week,
although the situation is only a minor one according to Dave Meltzer on the latest “Wrestling Observer Radio.”
It had been expected that Owens would be competing against either Ezekiel, Elias,
or their younger brother Elrod in a men’s Money In The Bank ladder match qualifier, but that match didn’t happen.
Instead, the commentary team claimed it was rescheduled, and while it is
not known why Owens was absent, it is reportedly not a serious issue.
Ezekiel was still part of “WWE Raw” this week in a backstage segment with the returning John Cena,
although neither Elias nor Elrod were shown. WWE also had a battle royal which was a men’s Money In
The Bank ladder match qualifier, but Ezekiel wasn’t featured in that, despite the fact he was going to get a chance to qualify originally.
