3 Reasons Why Kevin Owens Traded To SmackDown

9 months ago By Sports Desk

In a surprising twist, WWE fans around the globe witnessed Kevin Owens’ transition to SmackDown as the brand’s recent pick, in exchange for Jey Uso. The decision, made by SmackDown’s new General Manager Nick Aldis, was announced with a bang, quite literally. As soon as KO entered the SmackDown ring, he marked his presence by delivering a stunner to Dominik Mysterio.

This move is significant for SmackDown. The addition of Kevin Owens, a former Undisputed WWE Tag Team Champion, is bound to make waves in the main event scene. His skills, both in-ring and on the mic, his charisma, and his reliability as a performer make him a prized addition to any roster. With such a consistent track record, it’s intriguing to explore the possible reasons behind his shift to the blue brand.

First and foremost, Kevin Owens is not a stranger to the main event limelight. Fans still remember his incredible run as the WWE Universal Champion, which was unfortunately cut short by Vince McMahon’s decision to give Goldberg a chance at the title. Despite this setback, Owens showed resilience and solidified his place as a main-event-caliber superstar. By shifting to SmackDown, he can bring fresh energy and dynamism to the main event picture, which is crucial for any wrestling show to maintain viewer interest. At 39, he’s still in his prime and joining the likes of AJ Styles, Bobby Lashley, LA Knight, and Roman Reigns. This sets up the blue brand for some potentially unforgettable main-event matchups.

On the subject of unforgettable matchups, the second potential reason for Owens’ move could be to renew his rivalry with the ‘Tribal Chief’, Roman Reigns. Longtime fans are well aware of the history between these two gladiators. Their battles have always been intense, with both superstars pushing each other to the limit. The most recent encounter between Owens and Reigns took place at the 2023 Royal Rumble PLE. While Owens couldn’t secure a victory, the match itself was a testament to the chemistry these two share in the ring. And it wasn’t just the fans who sensed a potential reignition of this feud. A backstage segment during SmackDown hinted at what’s to come. Roman Reigns, along with his advocate Paul Heyman, Solo Sikoa, and Jimmy Uso, was visibly displeased with Owens’ arrival. This interaction teases a clash of titans in the near future, and fans would surely be on the edge of their seats for that.

The third and quite interesting reason could be the separation of Kevin Owens from his longtime friend and sometimes foe, Sami Zayn. Their wrestling journey, from the independent circuit to the grand stages of WWE, is the stuff of legends. Whether as allies or adversaries, their on-screen interactions are always pure gold. They’ve faced off in memorable bouts, stood side by side against common enemies, and have even had their disagreements. Their story is one of the most intricate and deeply personal tales in professional wrestling. However, every story needs new chapters, and by moving Owens to SmackDown and leaving Zayn on RAW, WWE might be aiming to give both superstars some room to grow individually. Instead of turning their recent alliance into a potentially heart-wrenching feud, WWE has decided to keep them on separate brands. But fans know that distance is just a minor obstacle. Should one of them be in peril, it wouldn’t be a surprise to see the other rush to their aid, especially when bigger threats, like those from Judgment Day, loom large.

In conclusion, the trade of Kevin Owens to SmackDown is a masterstroke. It offers fresh main event matches, rekindles old rivalries, and adds another layer to the saga of Owens and Zayn. As weeks unfold, viewers will be keenly watching how these potential reasons play out and what new chapters await Kevin Owens on the blue brand. SmackDown just got a lot more interesting, and the WWE Universe can’t wait to see what’s next.
