    The Grapevine (9/8/21): Kevin Owens's WWE Contract Expiring Earlier, Why Bryan Danielson Has A New Theme

    Kevin Owens

    Welcome to the Grapevine! This section of Smark Henry is where we round up all the important founded and unfounded rumors floating around the pro wrestling scene that you may have missed over the past few days. Remember to take everything with a grain of salt!

    Kevin Owens's WWE contract to expire earlier than expected

    Kevin Owens's current five-year contract, which he signed back in 2018, is apparently expiring earlier than expected this coming January. WWE reportedly restructured several contracts over the pandemic, which shortened Owens's deal from the original 2023 expiry date. It also seems that Owens hasn't signed a new deal yet, when it is standard for WWE to renew contracts months before they're set to expire. Owens has tweeted a now-deleted tweet of the coordinates to Mt. Rushmore in the US, a reference to his stable of the same name with current AEW wrestlers Adam Cole and the Young Bucks back in Pro Wrestling Guerrilla. (Source: Fightful Select)

    We say: It seems that both WWE and Kevin Owens are set to end their relationship and let the man walk to wherever he wants to go, unless something big happens between then and now. We expect WWE to offer him a new contract, but with the company's renewed focus on their traditional type of wrestlers, it might be more than likely to see Owens end up elsewhere.

    Why Bryan Danielson isn't using "The Final Countdown"

    Europe's "The Final Countdown," Bryan Danielson's old entrance theme before joining WWE, apparently costs $50,000 per use to license. This is reportedly too much even for Tony Khan, who opted to commission a new theme based on "Ride of the Valkyries," his WWE theme. (Source: Wrestling Observer Radio)

    We say: Now you know. It's okay, the new theme is pretty good.
