WWE SmackDown star Kevin Owens got fans talking when he announced on Twitter that he was taking a little break from WWE.
He just worked a singles match against Sami Zayn at the WWE Hell in a Cell pay-per-view event in Tampa, Florida at Yuengling Center.
Owens tweeted: “I fought like hell. Now, I need a little break. I’ll be back soon. Thank you, guys.”
In the match, there was a spot where Zayn did an outside dive and Owens immediately got up and sold his arm as if it had hurt it. Some fans thought that he may have been injured and that was the reason he’s taking time off. That’s not the case.
Dave Meltzer noted on today’s Wrestling Observer Radio that Owens is taking time off as part of a storyline.
Meltzer stated, “he’s taking time off, but I was told it’s storyline-related. So, there you go.”
As it stands right now, there’s no word yet on how long he will be kept off TV.
