Dave Meltzer reported Wrestling Observer Radio that Owens’ wife’s grandfather has died of COVID-19 in recent weeks. Owens’ family were clearly concerned that he was working in the building where someone had just tested positive for the disease.
Owens is expected to return to the next series of television recordings. The next set of RAW recordings is scheduled for June 29.
Owens last appeared on RAW last Monday when he defeated Angel Garza.
