Kevin Owens: “There were concrete plans for me to go back to NXT”

Last updated

WWE RAW Superstar Kevin Owens recently spoke to Alex McCarthy of TalkSPORT. The former Universal Champion discussed several topics during the interview, including the reveal of how he nearly went back to NXT for an extended period.

“Before I did the War Games return, there were concrete plans for me to go back to NXT for an extended period before coming back to the main roster,’ Kevin Owens revealed.

‘At the time Paul Heyman was in charge on RAW and those were just plans we had and Vince [McMahon] had signed off on all of them and, eventually, he changed his mind and nothing happened” Owens continued.

“That’s all it comes down to ’“ what he says goes. It wasn’t something I had just floated about, it was a plan that was going to happen and they just went in a different direction.”
