WWE News: Update On Major Plans For Kevin Owens Heading Into ‘WWE Clash Of Champions’

WWE Superstar Kevin Owens shocked the world when he won the WWE Universal Championship on WWE RAW this past Monday night. It was an amazing moment that fans may never forget. Afterward. he was treated to the Houston, Texas crowd chanting “you deserve it.” Despite the great moment, Owens didn’t just win the title cleanly. Triple H returned to the WWE after not being seen on the main roster television product since WrestleMania 32 when he lost to Roman Reigns in the main event of the show.

When Triple H returned, Roman was the first guy he attacked. He hit a pedigree on the former WWE World Heavyweight Champion and threw him in the ring for Seth Rollins to pin. Thinking that Rollins was going to win this one with The Game’s help, it seemed obvious that the Architect was about to watch Triple H take out Kevin Owens for him while he took the pin. The swerve of the year took place when the Cerebral Assassin hit Rollins with a pedigree in the center of the ring.

Owens was shocked to see Triple H take out his former protege, but when he saw him hit the pedigree on Rollins, KO was happy to take what was given to him. Owens shook Triple H’s hand, and it seemed as if the two confirmed an alliance of sorts. Meanwhile, WWE RAW General Manager Mick Foley and Triple H’s wife and RAW Commissioner Stephanie McMahon stood outside the ring shocked to see The Game return to take out the man they spent the last two years building up.

Most assumed that this clearly wasn’t the last we would see of Triple H. Most want to know his intentions because it is surely important. It isn’t as if Triple H can be mad that Seth Rollins got hurt last year as he knows more than anyone what a leg injury can do. Triple H missed a lot of time in his career due to quad injuries that would require surgery. In fact, he missed the entire Invasion angle in 2001 due to one.

That said, if he were to somehow go after Seth for missing time due to injury, it would make absolutely no sense at all. There has to be another reason it, and because he got screwed over, Rollins should get a shot at Kevin Owens’ Universal Title. He looks to be getting just that too, as Cageside Seats reports the plan for WWE Clash of Champions is to have Rollins take on Kevin Owens for the title.

This was rumored on Monday before the event, but most naturally assumed that Rollins would win, and Kevin Owens would turn babyface in his quest for the title. However, WWE pulled a great swerve by having Rollins get attacked by Triple H. The Inquisitr reported today that WWE has started to build up to a WrestleMania 33 match between Rollins and Triple H. That said, the two will most likely remain involved in a rivalry of some kind for the next number of months.

That does not mean Rollins will not win a championship soon. Rollins was always set to get back in the World Title picture by the end of the year. The cool story on RAW very well could have been the plan for the end of the year, but it was pushed up due to Finn Balor getting hurt.

That means Kevin Owens could remain in the World Title picture for a while and very well could be the WWE Universal Champion going into WrestleMania 33. What makes things even more interesting is that KO was congratulated by the first ever Universal Champion Finn Balor on Twitter. He thanked the Demon King, and the two teased a possible match when Balor comes back from his injury.

That means the planned WWE RAW matches for WrestleMania 33 could be Finn Balor vs. Kevin Owens and Seth Rollins vs. Triple H if all goes according to plan. Triple H/Rollins was actually set for WrestleMania 32 this past year, but several injuries ended up causing this to change. Of course, Seth Rollins was among the people hurt before the event. It will be an interesting situation next week and in the weeks following to see how these two possible matches shape up.
