WWE Rumors: Speculation On How Much Time Kevin Owens Will Miss



Kevin Owens WWE Three Stars Of The Night

After being dominated (pun intended) and viciously attacked by Bobby Lashley this past Monday on RAW, the following day it was reported that the attack on Kevin Owens was done to write him off of television as he will be having a minor knee surgery (see that story here).

While it was stated that ‘The Prize Fighter’ was not expected to miss much time due to the procedure, exact details on his injury and return were not known. Today, another report states that Owens may in fact be out for an extended period of time.

According to Dave Meltzer in the Wrestling Observer Newsletter, Owens’ knee injury is expected to keep him out for four months and depending on the severity, could be up to eight months. Meltzer states that the extent of the injury will not be known until the actual surgery takes place, but the hope is that major surgery can be avoided and his knee just needs to be “cleaned up”.

Currently, there’s no word as of yet on when Owens will be going under the knife, however The Chairshot will provide further updates on KO’s surgery, recovery and return as they become available.

ROH News: First Match Official For January’s Honor Reigns Supreme



ROH Honor Reigns Supreme
The ROH World Title will be on the line at Honor Reigns Supreme!

Now that Ring Of Honor has put Final Battle weekend in the rear-view (catch up on Final Battle with Daily DeMarco and see Final Battle Fallout spoilers here) and the promotion is finished up until the new year, the next events on the schedule will come on January 12th with Saturday Night At Center Stage, but then its off to Concord, North Carolina on January 13th for Honor Reigns Supreme.

With less than four weeks until the event, the first match for Honor Reigns Supreme has been made official today after ROH revealed that Dalton Castle will get his shot at regaining the ROH World Championship when he takes on Jay Lethal:

The Best Wrestling on the Planet returns to Concord, N.C., on Sunday, Jan. 13 for Honor Reigns Supreme at Cabarrus Arena. The top stars in Ring of Honor will do battle on a can’t-miss show that will be streamed live worldwide for HonorClub.

All roads lead to the G1 Supercard, co-promoted by ROH and New Japan Pro-Wrestling, at sold-out Madison Square Garden on April 6, 2019, and the happenings in Concord undoubtedly will have an impact on the historic show.

A huge main event has been signed for Honor Reigns Supreme, as ROH World Champion Jay Lethal defends his title against former champion Dalton Castle.


After losing the ROH World Title to Jay Lethal in a Four Corner Survival Match this past June, Castle took several months off to deal with the painful back and hamstring injuries that had been hampering him. As he attempted to mend his body, the former champion said he had just one thing on his mind: regaining the championship that he had held for more than six months.

With several competitors owed a title match, Castle earned the right to be first in line during the international television taping in Philadelphia over the weekend. Castle, who won the title from Cody at Final Battle 2017, holds a victory over Lethal, as he successfully defended the ROH World Title against him at the 16th Anniversary Show this past March.

Lethal avenged that loss a few months later by pinning Castle to win the title in the Four Corner Survival Match, and he has been at the top of his game ever since. The two-time ROH World Champion is coming off an impressive victory over Cody at Final Battle and also has made successful title defenses against the likes of Will Ospreay, Mark Haskins, Silas Young, Kenny King and Jonathan Gresham. “The Franchise of ROH” is closing in on 600 combined days as champion, which is second only to Samoa Joe’s 645 days on top.

Will Lethal turn back Castle’s challenge and continue his march towards history? Or will Castle become just the fifth man to regain the ROH World Championship? Join us in Concord or watch live on HonorClub to find out!

Sunday, Jan. 13, 2019
Cabarrus Arena in Concord, N.C.
Meet & Greets: 5 p.m.
Bell time: 7 p.m.

WWE News: Reported Original Plans For Kurt Angle’s Return

Kurt Angle’s return at TLC is said to have not been the original plan!

Last night at WWE TLC, we finally got the answers we were seeking pertaining to the Braun Strowman vs. Baron Corbin Tables, Ladders and Chairs Match after much speculation regarding Strowman’s status following surgery to remove bone chips in his elbow a few weeks back.

As had been reported leading up to the show, Braun was not likely to be cleared for the match (see that here), but with so much on the line (if Corbin won he would become full-time RAW General Manager, if Strowman won he gets a Universal Title shot at Royal Rumble) and no changes announced in advance, WWE chose to have the match proceed in a much different way.

With help from Finn Balor, Bobby Roode, Chad Gable, Apollo Crews, Heath Slater and a returning Kurt Angle, ‘The Monster Among Men’ didn’t have to do anything to pick-up the victory and send Corbin packing from the GM’s office. Angle of course has not been seen since a loss to Drew McIntyre on RAW prior to Survivor Series in November, but according to one report his TLC appearance was not the original plan for his comeback.

Mike Johnson of PWInsider reports that original plans for the WWE Hall Of Famer would have seen him return tonight on RAW. However, after deciding to have WWE Chairman Vince McMahon appear on tonight’s show, the plans for Kurt were then switched around.

EA’s Take: I don’t know, I thought Angle showing up last night was perfect. It made complete sense, which is the most important piece and the crowd loved it. So even coming a day early, I think this could actually be better than whatever his original return plans were (which we don’t know). I’d still expect to see him tonight because I have to imagine that whatever Vince is going to say, part of it will likely address the General Manager situation.
