Kevin Owens Challenges Elton John to WrestleMania Match Over Missing Concert

kevin owens elton john missing concert wrestlemania challenge

Elton John cancelled his concert 30-minutes after it was scheduled to start on Tuesday … and since Kevin Owens was in the crowd, this naturally led to a WrestleMania challenge. 

The legendary musician was scheduled to perform in Orlando this evening as part of his Farewell Yellow Brick Road tour. However, while expecting him to walk out, the crowd in attendance were notified that Elton would not be taking the stage due to an ear infection.

Cue Kevin Owens. 

KO tweeted, “Hey, [Elton John], nobody ruins my wife and I’s date night except me! You, me…WrestleMania. I’ve fought men in their 70’s before, I can do it again!” The tweet included a photo of Kevin beating up Vince McMahon. 

“The last time I wore red heart-shaped glasses for another man before tonight was on January 12, 1996 at the Montreal Forum,” he wrote in an additional tweet. “I was 11 years old. It was for Shawn Michaels! I’m never wearing red heart-shaped glasses for another man again!”

Will Elton have the guts to take him up on the challenge? Probably not. This NSFW clip of the 71-year-old singer kicking ass in the movie “Kingsman: The Golden Circle” seems relevant though.
