Kevin Owens nearly suffers devastating injury with scary fall at WWE Fastlane
KO was competing against Daniel Bryan and Mustafa Ali for the WWE title at Fastlane
Kevin Owens only returned to the company a few weeks ago after nearly six months out with double knee surgery.
The Canadian was immediately inserted into a WWE title match with Daniel Bryan for Fastlane, but the original plans had Owens challenging for the title at WrestleMania.
The rise of Kofi Kingston to main event player and the crowd’s desire to see him become WWE champion has seen Owen’s shot get moved forward and after some McMahon toying with Kingston, his title match was made a triple-threat, too.
But, not with Kingston. Mustafa Ali was the lucky third participant.
During the match, wrestling fans held their collective breath as KO went to execute a tope con hillo on Bryan’s heavy, Erick Rowan.
However, Rowan didn’t catch Owens as expected and it resulted in a very scary moment for the former Universal champion.
Owens sprung up straight away luckily and no harm appears to have been done.
There is no clear path for Owens at WrestleMania now that Kingston seems primed to challenge Bryan after he retained on Sunday.
Sami Zayn is on the cusp of returning, though, and reuniting the band might make the world of sense.
