During Monday night’s episode of RAW, Randy Orton mentioned Kevin Owens’ weight. He asked if Owens put on weight and Owens said “no”. It was seen by some as a cheap shot at Owens. According to sources, this comment was deliberate as there are still problems with Owens’ look with some people in WWE. After Owens submitted to John Cena at Battleground, it was reported that there are two camps in WWE: those who are for Owens and those who are against him and they are in the middle of a “game” to see who is right about his success or failure in the company.
There were reports last year that WWE Executive Vice President of Television Production Kevun Dunn was trying to convince Vince McMahon to bury NXT callups like Bo Dallas, Paige and Adam Rose. It was believed that he would “bury” people who threatened his position, like Triple H and Stephanie McMahon, who are in favor of NXT’s success.
