WWE Superstar Kevin Owens injured

WWE Superstar Kevin Owens has suffered an injury and is expected to be on the sidelines for an indefinite period. Owens, the former Universal Champion, has been involved with a feud with Bobby Lashley for a while now and on the latest episode of Monday Night Raw, the Prizefighter went one-on-one with Lashley.

After the match, Lashley went after his rival and turned heel as he wrapped Owens' legs around a turnbuckle because of which the Canadian-born wrestler suffered injuries to both his knees.

WWE confirmed the development and he is expected to be off television for a while. 'Kevin Owens sustained injuries to both knees when Bobby Lashley viciously wrapped Owens’ legs around a turnbuckle after their match, WWE.com can confirm. Owens will undergo further evaluation tomorrow to determine the full extent of the damage,' WWE said after last night's Raw.

According to various sources which include Post Wrestling, Dave Meltzer of the Wrestling Observer Radio and Sescoops, the angle to wrap Kevin Owens’ legs around a post on Raw was not only to turn Bobby Lashley heel but also done to write KO off television because he needs minor knee surgery.

He was also pulled out of the WWE Mixed Match challenge, where he was partnering Natalya. As things stand, his replacement as Natalya's partner is yet to be announced.

This break will give both Owens and WWE a new lease of life as he has not been used properly of late and with the ongoing feuds, it is very difficult for WWE to find a way for Owens in the upper card or the upper-mid card for a few weeks. Ever since his move to Raw in this year's Superstar shake-up, Owens has been involved in storylines with Braun Strowman and Bobby Lashley and has been buried in both the feuds.
