Why Owens wasn't on RAW; Report on Summerslam plans Submitted by Aaron Rift on 07/31/2020 at 10:10 AM
- Dave Meltzer of F4WOnline.com noted that Kevin Owens was in attendance at last week's WWE RAW TV tapings but the company decided to not use him. Meltzer speculated on why Owens didn't appear on television:
"I think the key was that since they wanted to do injury angles with [Aleister] Black on both shows, the feeling was that Owens would theoretically have to do run-ins to attempt to break those up and they didnít feel the need to sacrifice him in angles like that."
- Twitter account @WrestleVotes noted the following regarding Summerslam:
Source: those in power at WWE are meeting today to discuss and hopefully finalize SummerSlam plans, including location. As noted before, the desperation to land a location outside of the PC is coming from the top. Itís not as easy as they had hoped.
