If AEW acquires another WWE Superstar, it could be everything for the AEW Universe. Now, it’s possible that Kevin Owens could join the company, but it’s still a prediction.

It so happens that Kevin Owens’ WWE contract is ending in a year or so. So, in the off chance that Owens doesn’t sign another contract with the company, he’ll be free to work with any company he wants.

Owens showed a possible reconciliation with his former faction, Mount Rushmore. He worked in the stable with The Young Bucks and Adam Cole before signing with WWE in 2014. In a now-deleted tweet, he put out the coordinates of the original Mount Rushmore on Twitter, with the message “Almost There”.

Even though it’s a prediction, it’s possible Kevin Owens is hinting towards working with his former stable partners again.

Kevin Owens revealed his further plans with WWE

In a previous interview, Owens revealed that he did not mind finishing his career at WWE. However, it would depend on if he wants to continue and if it works with his family.

Hence, if that is true, Owens could stick around if he believes what he’s doing at the company is promoting the skills he has as a pro-wrestler. Currently, Owens is working as a superstar and as a commentator.

Kevin Owens sat at the commentators’ table after Pat McAfee had to take a break. McAfee tested positive for COVID-19, and SmackDown required more than Michael Cole at the commentator’s table.

Prior to sitting at the commentators’ bench, Owens was in a short storyline with Baron Corbin. This was when Corbin went broke and was begging the SmackDown audience to donate at least $1,000 to him. This is when Owens came out to the arena and asked Corbin to stop.

The segment ended with Corbin and Owens stepping in the ring together. Owens defeated Corbin, which was what he had to do in order to keep Corbin from further begging.

Since then, Owens hasn’t been in a major storyline. Therefore, if nothing great happens for him at WWE, it could motivate Owens to not sign a new deal, and move over to AEW.
