Kevin Owens debut is said to be imminent; more notes on how he got his name

As noted last week, Kevin Steen will be known as Kevin Owens when he debuts in NXT. He named his son Owen because Steen grew up as a huge fan of Owen Hart. So while it is based on his son, the name is also a tribute to Owen Hart.

Steen worked out in front of Triple H about two weeks ago and they have vignettes already taped for him for his debut in NXT. The vignettes have not aired yet. He is expected to debut imminently, either at the NXT Taveover special on December 11 or the tapings on the next night.
