For the first time since 2019's Grand Finals, the legend is back. Chris Puckett is returning to the Overwatch League.
Following a two-year hiatus from the OWL, the OWL community is celebrating today. Puckett has been one of the most well-known personalities in the OWL since he ran all of the league's events from 2020 to 2020.

After the OWL launched in 2018, Puckett was on the roster as a host for many tournaments before and after the OWL. He was one of the constant faces that viewers saw before, during, and after OWL matches.
This will be his first time hosting the OWL since the switch to Overwatch 2 as the game the esport is played on. In the time since Puckett last casted, the game had several public betas and will soon be available in early access for all players on October 4th.
Puckett has hosted many esports since leaving the OWL, including Halo, VALORANT, and more. In 2021, Puckett and his wife Molly welcomed a baby girl who keeps him company while he watches esports from time to time.
