Recently within WWE it has become more common for main roster stars to return to NXT. In the past year we have seen the likes of Tyler Breeze and Finn Balor make a return to the gold brand, we seen Charlotte Flair win the NXT Women’s Championship and most recently we seen Sasha Banks take on Io Shirai.
It looks like there is going to be another name to join the list, Kevin Owens has revealed that he has spoken with Vince McMahon regarding a return to NXT.
In a recent interview with CBS Sports, Owens discussed conversations that he had with Vince and Triple H regarding a return to the Wednesday night show. Her is what he said:
“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 vocal about 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.”
“I talk to Triple H pretty regularly 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, 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.”
Owens did make a brief surprise return to the gold brand at NXT Takeover Wargames last year. He turned up to the pay per view to be help lead Tommaso Ciampa to victory over the Undisputed Era. Owens has not been seen on NXT since.
If he were to make a return, who would you like to see him feud with?
