Kevin Owens reveals WWE had plans for him to go to NXT and NXT UK last year. The ideas however, did not come to fruition.
Kevin Owens returned to NXT last year as the mystery member of Team Ciampa at NXT TakeOver: WarGames against the Undisputed Era. This was the former NXT Champion’s first ever return to the brand since moving to the main roster permanently.
Unlike Finn Balor, who stayed back at the Black and Gold brand, Owens would move back to the main roster once again. However, it has since emerged that he was meant to do much more than he actually did, including showing up on NXT as well.

“They’re all extremely talented guys, and I would love to compete with any of those guys,” Owens told Metro. “I kinda got to do a bit with Imperium last year, so that was cool. At one point there was a plan for me to go back to NXT at some point last year, which didn’t happen, obviously. But we had even discussed, maybe if that happens, then maybe I could show up on NXT UK and work with all these different people. I’d love to get to do that!
“The UK – all of Europe, really – I had a really fun time there as an independent wrestler and again touring with WWE. Any chance I would get to be there more and wrestle for those fans – if or when we get an audience back, or even in this setting. To be a part of that and help do good stuff over with NXT UK, I’d love that for sure.”
Owens is scheduled to face Roman Reigns in a TLC match for the Universal Championship this Sunday. The two have fought several times before in the past. This time however, both athletes find their alignments reversed.
