Kevin Owens takes the COVID-19 outbreak seriously and voiced his concerns over WWE’s handling of the situation on several occasions. He recently had a discussion about it with Vince McMahon, which resulted in the company instituting a mask policy. A fining system was also instituted, making it mandatory to wear masks.
During Wrestling Observer Radio, Dave Meltzer discussed Kevin Owens’ role backstage regarding the mask policy.
“He was the reason, but it wasn’t like he made a stand and everything like that, but he was going to go home if it didn’t happen and he was written into the show. It’s actually very important because if Mysterio doesn’t sign you know it goes Owens and Seth Rollins as the new program.”
Owens defeated Rollins on this week’s RAW. It was noted that “Owens is figured high on the card.”
