Kevin Owens has taken his 'quitting' angle to the next level and his t-shirts are now once again available on Pro Wrestling Tees.
The separation between what is real and what isn't in professional wrestling is something that is often discussed in the present day. With the emergence of social media, not only is it hard to pull off a wrestling angle without the whole world knowing about it, but we have a window into the real worlds of the men and women that we see on television and in the ring.
Since it has become so hard to make it seem as if the wrestler you are on TV is the person you really are in everyday life, most people don't even bother. That's why it's extra special when a wrestler does go that extra mile in order to blur that line, and someone who has it down to a fine art is Kevin Owens.
The Prizefighter 'quit' WWE last week and has gone all in on the act. Not only has WWE moved his profile to the alumni section on WWE.com, but KO has also deleted all of his tweets aside from two and also removed his profile picture. The former Universal Champion is not done yet, though. He has even reopened his store at Pro Wrestling Tees so you can now buy all of your old favorite Kevin Steen t-shirts, we're assuming for a limited time only.
This isn't the first time Owens has convinced WWE to let him pull a stunt like this. When he and Sami Zayn were 'fired' from SmackDown Live earlier this year, KO changed his name from Owens back to Steen on Twitter and also made it seem as if he was headed back to the independent circuit.
How far will Owens and WWE go this time? The timing of the angle does seem a little coincidental. All In is this Saturday and Cody Rhodes has suggested in the past that he and The Young Bucks considered speaking with WWE about using some of the company's Superstars for the event. Perhaps those conversations did happen, and maybe we will see KO appear in Chicago in some form or fashion this Saturday.
