Kevin Owens has quite a prestigious streak on the line at this weekend's WWE Survivor Series pay-per-view (PPV) event, and nobody seems to be talking about it. Allow us to enlighten you.
Per a report from Cageside Seats, who has been keeping track of which wrestlers are and aren't competing on PPV events (not counting kickoff shows), Owens has the longest streak of competing on consecutive PPV events.
The report, of course, also does not count non-appearances on rival brand-exclusive shows either. For example, Owens was not penalized for not competing on a RAW-exclusive PPVs. "KO" has competed in 29 straight PPV events, meaning he has been on every card eligible to him since making his main roster debut in 2015.
WWE Champion AJ Styles has the next longest streak with 21, and his will continue as he is set to meet Universal Champion Brock Lesnar at Survivor Series this weekend. Cesaro ranks third on the list with 13, as he also will be competing on the card.
Owens, however, does not have a match scheduled for Survivor Series as of this writing. He and reunited best friend Sami Zayn lost out on their opportunities to be a part of SmackDown Live's Survivor Series team by failing to win their respective qualifying matches.
Perhaps there is a slim possibility that Owens can find himself competing on the card this weekend, but it's looking more and more like his streak of consecutive PPV appearances will be coming to an end.
It's possible that the controversy he and Zayn have been a part of as of late plays into things. Owens and Zayn were sent home from WWE's recent European tour after reportedly "going into business for themselves" at a SmackDown Live taping.
Initially it looked as though Owens and Zayn were going to take on The New Day at Survivor Series, but instead New Day will feud with The Shield at the event.
What are your thoughts on Owens' PPV appearance streak possibly coming to an end this weekend? Do you think WWE did themselves and Owens a disservice by keeping him off the card? Or will he somehow find himself booked on this weekend's event? Have YOUR say in the comments section below, and the fourth episode of GiveMeSport’s WWE podcast is here!
