Kevin Owens talks about NXT, Triple H’s commitment to NXT, Finn Balor and Samoa Joe

Kevin Owens spoke with Mike Jones of DC 101 to hype this weekend’s WWE Live Event in Fairfax, Virginia.  Down below are some of the highlights from that interview.

On Finn Balor and Samoa Joe coming up to the WWE main roster:

“I think there’s a lot of people in NXT that are right on the cusp of being ready to come and make an impact on the main roster. Joe, Finn, Hideo Itami, when he’s healthy cause he’s still hurt right now, Enzo and Big Cass, who are probably my favorites in NXT right now, and that’s just to name a few.”

On still having those “OH WOW” moments:

“It’s happened to me several times over the past few months and it still happens. I get in the elevator and it’s just me in the elevator, I’ll find myself staring at the reflection and thinking ‘How did you get here’ and it’s a way of reminding myself that this is what I’ve been waiting for forever.”

On NXT preparing him for the main roster:

“That’s the thing about NXT and the way they built NXT is it’s so good to get you ready for that moment. Triple H built it with that in mind, that once you get that opportunity you nail it and knock it out of the park. He did everything he could to make NXT basically a smaller version of RAW.”
