Kevin Owens Reveals Why He Wasn’t At WWE SmackDown Live This Week

Despite being a major part of recent storylines on WWE SmackDown Live, Kevin Owens was absent this week and he addressed that fact on Twitter after the show

A fan asked Owens why he was missing, and KO stated that he thought if he didn’t show up then Shane McMahon wouldn’t show up and he would be doing everyone a favor, which worked!

However, KO then did provide a serious answer, claiming that he didn’t want to fly out early and leave his family in a potential hurricane this week. Once Owens realized that they would be safe, he tried to get to Norfolk but he couldn’t make it work, stating that the absence was on him, but it was certainly a legitimate reason.

I figured if I didn’t show up, maybe Shane wouldn’t either and I’d be doing everyone a favor. It worked! 👍

Actually, I didn’t want to fly out early and leave my family in a potential hurricane. I tried to get to Norfolk today once I knew they‘d be safe but no luck.

It’s on me.
