WWE Superstar Kevin Owens signed a five-year contract to remain with the promotion. 

"Hopefully I do not see why I would not finish my career with WWE," Owens told wrestling historian Patric Laprade, per Angel Rodriguez of WrestlingNews.co. "I just recently signed a new five-year contract with them. I do not intend to go anywhere. If the WWE wants to continue, if I want to continue and my family is ready for me to continue, I do not see why it would not happen."

Owens, 34, signed with WWE in 2014 after a lengthy career on the independent circuit. He's won the NXT Championship, Universal Championship, United States Championship and Intercontinental Championship during his time with the organization.

Owens' five-year deal is outside the norm for WWE, which typically signs performers to three-year deals—besides the ones it plans on pushing over the long term. This new deal will keep Owens with the company and likely toward the top of the card for the foreseeable future.

Owens is part of the Raw brand and has been partnered with longtime friend/rival Sami Zayn, though their current program is up in the air since they were "fired" from Smackdown. They lost to Bobby Lashley and Braun Strowman at Sunday night's Backlash pay-per-view.
