    Kevin Owens to have knee surgery.

    Due to numerous sources, it turns out the reason KO had the knee injury angle on Raw, was due to actually requiring knee surgery.

    It's hoped to be minor, but at worst case could be between 4-8 months of time recovering depending on the severity.

    Of course, per usual, WWE almost always exaggerates recovery time to exaggerate the severity of the injury, and make wrestlers look more super human for quick returns.

    This is no loss to raw and the guy has been spinning his wheels for months. Think his plans for the year were messed up when Sami got injured.

    Wonder who they replace him with on MMC. Could even be Elias.

    I agree

    It is never good to see someone get injured, but in this case it might actually help him
    He could come back in a few months as a face and feud with Lashley upon his return

    Sort of a shame because it looked like they turned him face on Monday which would have also freshened him up.

    I just hope they spice him up when he comes back.

    Instead of the coward heel who is constantly losing, maybe make him go back to how he was when he made his Raw debut.

    Yeah, sad about the injury but nothing on Raw has actually annoyed me more this year than KO's cowardly heel gimmick. Hope this rejuvenates his career.

    Re: Kevin Owens to have knee surgery.

    I haven't even bothered watching since the Braun turn and Roman shit.

    It's just awful. Monday Night Football is usually better. Or sleeping. Or literally anything other than 3 hours of Roman Reigns, Bellas, and Michael Cole.

    I'll watch the highlights or matches with stuff involving Finn or Alexa, but they are too invested in Roman to care about any male talent. And Alexa? Eh, they have their Bella Botch Twins and their female Lesnar.

    KO should go to SD when he returns.

    Re: Kevin Owens to have knee surgery.

    Not that I'd wish an injury on anyone, but this is probably the best thing for Owens right now. Despite enjoying his stuff with Elias the last few weeks, he's been pretty stale since WrestleMania and turned into a bit of a non-entity almost in that time. At this point, I could've seen him being an Andre Battle Royal participant by the time WrestleMania rolled around. Hopefully he comes back from this fresher after some time away.

    Yeah Owens is the type of guy to turn a negative into a positive and he needed this break for sanity. He'll come back in the best shape of his life, WWE just needs to find the right thing for him to do to get him back on top.

    Re: Kevin Owens to have knee surgery.

    I think it’s a shame. I don’t think he’s been bad but he’s definitely not the character that he should be and his performances get slumped because of it.

    I’m really into the idea of him coming back as a face.

    I still think the best thing for him would've been clotheslining Trips out the ring before pinning Rollins, after he helped him win the Universal title. Would've been a great shift into anti-hero tweener or babyface without changing his character much.

    Re: Kevin Owens to have knee surgery.

    Im not the biggest fan of the guy but some time off TV is best for the guy. Hes had a pretty miserable last year, year and a half. I cant remember the last time KO was enjoyable. Hes gone from underwhelming feud to underwhelming feud for a while now.

    This is really common thesedays though, feels like the majority of the time when someone gets injured its a good thing in this way. Too much of the roster is just spinning their wheels and doing nothing while the same few people endlessly sit at the top of the card doing nothing of note themselves.

    Re: Kevin Owens to have knee surgery.

    Owens headbutting Vince was the last time I cared about him.

    I think your 2nd point is caused by raw being three hours so someone like Owens has to be on the show every week even when there’s no angle just to fill out time. SD still has that problem because of bad booking throughout the company but at least some people can take a week off losing because it’s a stacked roster.

    I agree with that, Raw being 3 hours definitely makes things worse. Guys with no real direction kind of have to be on TV every week just to fill in the time. It’s not much better in SD though, guys like Miz, Bryan, Rusev, even Joe and Nakamura just largely feel like they’re just there most of the time. Even AJ is just there doing nothing remarkable and he’s been WWE Champ for a year.
