Kevin Steen's future in wrestling is unclear following last night's Ring of Honor vs. New Japan Pro Wrestling "War of the Worlds" event in New York City. Prior to the show Steen tweeted the following:
When a fan asked him where he was going, the former world champ responded by simply saying "home".
During this weekend's iPPV event, Steen lost his match to Shinsuke Nakamura, after also losing his match last weekend to ROH World Champion Adam Cole. After the match he cut a promo about loving Ring of Honor but not feeling at home since he lost the title. He also talked about going home to take care of his family – which includes a newborn child – and that it was time for him to say goodbye.
That being said, they also began an angle with Silas Young that ended in the two brawling and being pulled apart by a bunch of people. It is expected that Steen will face Young at next month's "Best in the World" PPV, and that could be his last match with the company. Or it could all be well-orchestrated work and Kevin Steen won't actually be going anywhere.
For what it's worth, he was a part of a recent WWE try-out camp and reports stated that many officials were impressed by his performance. However, no details have come out of that camp and there's no telling if Steen would actually make that jump even if an offer was put on the table.
