Last updated

WWE RAW Superstar Kevin Owens recently revealed who it was that got him to re-sign with the company earlier this year.

There had been rumours that Owens was considering leaving the promotion to head to AEW, alongside his friends The Young Bucks and Adam Cole.

Owens would of course end up re-signing with WWE and staying with the company for at least the next couple of years.

Speaking to ESPN, the former Universal Champion revealed that it was Vince McMahon who convinced him to stay, mainly by how passionate he was about keeping Owens in contract.

“Well, a big part of it, honestly, was that Vince McMahon made it pretty clear to me that he wanted me to stay” Owens began.

“I’ve been in WWE for seven years at this point. I have a lot of friends everywhere else in wrestling, but there is a whole side of WWE that people don’t get to see, whether it’s the production crew or the camera people, the stage manager, the creative team, all these people.

“They’re all very special people and they’re a part of my family. My extended family now. My professional family, if you want to call it that” Owens revealed.

“Those were all factors that led to me staying put because Vince made it clear he wanted me to stay. It feels like my home and all those other people there. If I wasn’t there, I wouldn’t get to see anymore and that was just like. It just seemed like the right move. That’s really all there is to it” Kevin Owens concluded.

KO is set to main event WrestleMania 38 this weekend with a KO Show segment alongside Stone Cold Steve Austin.
