He opens up about his future. 

Since night one of WrestleMania 39, Kevin Owens and Sami Zayn have been reigning as Undisputed WWE Tag Team Champions. The duo have had five successful title defenses since then and have main evented episodes of Monday Night Raw and SmackDown. 

Owens opened up about his future as he was speaking to Toronto Sun. It is noted in the article that he has a year-and-a-half left on his WWE contract. Owens dove into that and said he does not know what’s next beyond this upcoming year-and-a-half. 

He knows he has a place in WWE, but for the right now, he wants to focus on what he’s involved in and enjoying that. 

That’s a great question (what’s left to accomplish for Owens). I really don’t know. I used to say I don’t see myself not being in the ring for another five-to-10 years. And if I said it right now, I’d be lying because over the last few months, I have to admit, I don’t know if that’s true anymore. I look at things and I don’t know where I stand going beyond the next year-and-a-half. I know I want to be involved in wrestling. I know I want to be involved in the WWE and I know I have a place here. I just don’t know where it is exactly. Maybe it’s still in the ring, maybe it’s not. I don’t know.

I think for the next year-and-a-half, my focus is just on enjoying everything I do as much as possible. There’s not really a worry about winning a title or main-eventing WrestleMania or any of that stuff anymore, which are the dreams that everybody has because I’ve been so blessed and I’ve gotten to do all of that. So I just want to have fun and I want to give people fun times to remember me by. Whether this is the end for my wrestling, I don’t know and I don’t want to sound dramatic, I don’t want to say this is a retirement speech or anything because I might still be wrestling for 10 years. I have no idea. My thought process right now is just to try to enjoy the next year-and-a-half as much as I possibly can because I don’t know what’s on the other side. That’s really all I’m worrying about.

Owens was taken out by Damian Priest and Women’s World Champion Rhea Ripley so on the 7/31 Raw, his partner Sami Zayn is tagging with World Heavyweight Champion Seth Rollins to face Priest and NXT North American Champion Dominik Mysterio.
