WWE NXT Champion Kevin Owens spoke with Rolling Stone spoke to promote Wednesday’s NXT Takeover: Unstoppable special. Here are the highlights.
Comparing his life on the indies to his new life in NXT: One of the big advantages of NXT for me was I get to sleep in my own bed every night almost. For years, I was on the road with the indies two, three days a week, and it got to the point where I’d wake up not sure which town I was in. Which, honestly, I kind of liked. That’s part of being a wrestler. But when I signed with WWE and moved to Orlando, my wife and my two kids came with me. That’s been great. My daughter just turned one a couple of weeks ago, so I get to be there for a lot of the landmarks I didn’t necessarily get to see with my first kid. That said, I do look forward to getting back on the road when the time is right.
On his feud with Sami Zayn: I really think the story between us can be told at any point on any stage, but of course I’m looking forward to making moments and history with other people, whether on the main roster or at NXT. NXT is very special, and everybody who turns in for Unstoppable is gonna see that. Me and Sami bring the best out of each other, and we’re gonna do that again.
