WWE.com reached out to Shane McMahon and Kevin Owens, and both declined to comment on Owens’ firing on last night’s SmackDown LIVE.
Owens didn’t comment to the website of the company he’s now fired from, but KO did go on his Twitter to share out three ominous numbers and one fan in particular may have solved the cryptic puzzle:
14th letter is N
24th letter is X
20th letter is T
I like where this is going.

Owens was the special guest referee in the King of The Ring semi-finals match that Shane McMahon inserted himself into against Chad Gable. The deck was stacked against Chad, but he ended up victorious with a tap-out victory, but unfortunately for Owens, it got him the pink slip.
