Kevin Owens, the WWE star revealed his side of the plans during the 2020 WWE Draft.
During an interview with Bleacher Report, he opened up that he almost made his full-time move in NXT but that plans were scrapped off and he remained at the main roster.
Kevin Owens on his possible NXT move this year:
“Last year at some point, I was going back to NXT. It was all in motion and it was going to happen, and then it didn’t. To say that’s a thought that crossed my mind would be an understatement, but I would tell you right now that that’s not the case anymore. That’s just not where I’m at anymore. Now, I want to be on Raw or be on SmackDown and just fight like hell to create some memorable moments for everybody. That’s all I want at this point.”
Kevin Owens is not a big fan of WWE Draft because he is picked in the latter half of the event rather than being the early picks. He was picked in Round 4 in 2016 and then in Round 3 in 2019. He will be expecting a move to the Friday Night SmackDown to freshen up the air and the scene.
