Last night on Monday Night Raw, they appeared to do a double turn with Bobby Lashley turning heel and Kevin Owens turning face when Lashley brutally attacked Owens’ knee after their match.
It came off like an angle to write Owens off of television for a while. We have learned that Owens will be undergoing minor knee surgery. The belief is that he will be back in a couple of months.
Owens’ character has been stale this year and he hasn’t been the same since being moved to Raw from Smackdown Live earlier this year.
Owens doesn’t tweet much but he sent out the following earlier today:

In a post on WWE.com they mixed work and shoot with his injury status. They said, “Owens will undergo further evaluation tomorrow to determine the full extent of the damage.”
I guess this means we could know more about his recovery timetable sometime tomorrow.
Note: John Pollock at Post Wrestling broke the news earlier today and we have independently confirmed the news with a WWE source.
