KEVIN OWENS RETURN:-
Kevin Owens recently spoke to Brent Brookhouse of CBS sports and addressed that he might be headed back to WWE NXT.
Owens informed that he had been called by the WWE NXT a few years back and there is a possibility that he will be back to WWE NXT very soon. He told that he even talked with the WWE chairman Vince Mcmahon about a return to NXT it is something that he really wants to do but the future holds something else for Owens and the decision has been made to keep him on Raw or Smackdown.
Owens added “For a while there, it looked like I was going to head back to NXT. I had even discussed it with Vince McMahon and stuff like that. I was excited about it. I don’t know if it would have been a long or short term thing.
“I’ve been really wanting to go back there because I’d love to help make it grow even more and help make it as big as it can get and make it so we have three brands people know about. I would love for people to be just as aware of NXT as they are about Raw and SmackDown. I would have loved to be a part of that, but some decisions were made that I had to stay put on Raw and SmackDown. That’s fine, but I would love the chance to go back.”
Owens further added that NXT’s return is something that comes up during the talks with Triple H.
“I talk to Triple H on a regular basis and we bring it up once in a while. It’s just about timing, “There’s a lot of opportunities. The landscape of WWE is changing quite a bit through this situation and I think it’s going to keep evolving.
“The ideal scenario for me would be for NXT to be viewed as a third brand after Raw and Smackdown, and if it’s not already, it’s pretty close. I’d love to be a part of anything. I love to contribute to SmackDown, to Raw, to NXT. I just want to go where I’m needed and try to make a difference.”
Owen signed a contract with WWE in August 2014. He defeated Cj parker At his NXT debut match at “Takeover. Owens got the title shot against Sami Zayn and just after two months of his debut he goes on to become NXT Champion for the first time by defeating Sami Zayn at “Takeover: Rival” on February 11, 2015. He was sent to the main roster in the summer of 2015, shortly after losing the NXT Title to Finn Balor.
