WWE RAW, a show that never fails to surprise its audience, recently witnessed a last-minute alteration to its scheduled lineup.
The September 4th edition of the show was expected to feature a top-tier talent, but fans were left puzzled when he was conspicuously absent.
Kevin Owens, the former co-holder of the Undisputed WWE Tag Team Championship, was the star in question. Early in the show, Sami Zayn, Owens’ tag team partner, mentioned that Owens wouldn’t be gracing the ring that evening.
This statement left fans speculating about the reasons behind his absence.
WWE ARW: Behind the Scenes
While the audience was left in the dark, sources have shed some light on the situation. It turns out that Owens was indeed present backstage at the Charlotte, NC venue.
Interestingly, he was slated to face JD McDonagh in a singles match later that day, according to a report from PWInsider.
However, in a twist of events, the WWE decided to change the plans. Instead of the anticipated Owens vs. McDonagh match, fans got to see Zayn take on McDonagh.
Owens, despite being backstage, did not make an appearance on the show.
Reasons for the Change
The reasons behind this sudden change remain shrouded in mystery. While speculations are rife, no official statement has been released regarding why Owens’ match was cancelled.
Fans and followers of WWE Raw are eagerly awaiting more information on this unexpected turn of events.

Despite the disappointment of not seeing Owens in action, the show did have its moments. Zayn, in Owens’ absence, found an ally in ‘Main Event’ Jey Uso, the latest addition to the Raw roster.
This new alliance promises exciting dynamics for future episodes.
