Leading up to his match with Logan Paul, much was said about the cast on his hand and wrist, and we can now say that Kevin Owens worked the Royal Rumble injured.
Like, literally, legitimately injured.
Just…not the body part you think.
In the weeks leading up to the United States Championship bout, Kevin Owens was injured as part of the story.
His hand was broken and he began to appear with a cast on his hand and wrist.
And, being who he is, the injury did not stop him from fighting…and as you’d expect, the cast became a factor.
Logan Paul even threatened legal action over the wearing of the cast. To end that chatter, Owens got healed and cast-free fast.
Except, he wasn’t healed.
Kevin Owens Worked Royal Rumble Injured
Per a report from the Wrestling Observer, Owens still worked Saturday’s premium live event with an injury.
Just not a busted hand.
Instead, Kevin Owens worked a very good match with Logan Paul while enduring a fractured foot.
We don’t have much else to go on with this one yet, but will provide updates as they come in.
I am sure WWE creative types are hoping that this is not a long term injury, and that Owens will still work WrestleMania.
Given the recent rash of injuries to top Superstars, the company really does not want to lose another.
From personal experience, I would say a lot depends on the area of the fracture and the severity.
Given that he worked with the injury and did not seem to be limited, maybe it is on the minor side.
But, if I is something more significant (like a Lis Franc injury) then we could be seeing Owens down for an extended period of time.
Either way, hopefully he makes a speedy and complete recovery.
