Just recently it was reported that Jason Jordan has been injured and now another top WWE star has reportedly been pulled from weekend’s house shows due to injury.

Former Universal Champion Kevin Owens did not appear on the last two SmackDown Brand Live Events despite being advertised for it which left people speculating.

Now Pwinsider is reporting that the SmackDown Live Star was pulled from these shows because of an existing injury he has been working through. Although at this point, no further details about his condition are available.

Thankfully, the belief is that his injury is not serious and Officials prevented him from wrestling at these shows as a precautionary measure so he is not too banged up to work at Royal Rumble.

As of this writing, Kevin Owens is still advertised for the SmackDown episode tonight but whether or not he’ll be wrestling at the show is yet to be seen.

Owens along with his partner Sami Zayn is scheduled to challenge the current WWE Champion AJ Styles for his title in a 2-on-1 handicap match at the Royal Rumble PPV next Sunday.
