Kevin Owens could be headed back to NXT roster

As noted, this week's WWE Clash of Champions go-home edition of SmackDown from Madison Square Garden saw Shane McMahon "fire" Kevin Owens to close the show.

Owens took to Twitter after the show and posted a cryptic tweet that seems to indicate that he may be headed back to the WWE NXT brand.

He wrote, "14-24-20"

Speculation is that each number corresponds to a letter in the alphabet, to spell out N-X-T. They could do a storyline where Owens was fired from SmackDown and RAW, but the ruling doesn't apply to NXT.

Owens originally made his WWE debut on the NXT brand back in December 2014. He made his last appearance for the black & yellow brand in August 2015, and has been a member of the blue or red brand ever since.

Get the fuck outta here, they ain't sending one of their top 3 most over acts to NXT. He's gonna make Shane's life a living hell until Shane agrees to face him in HIAC and when Owens beats him he gets his job back. Owens kills Shane and writes him off. Period. Boom.

This is what he should do.

Which probably means that this is what won't happen

I could see them sending him back for like a month. Or two weeks or whatever.

NXT is BADLY in need of some fresh talent in the top tier scene.

Nah, he will. It won't be done, well, but that will be the basic angle.

Also, I heard a rumor that Fox doesn't want Shane, so that lends credence to this idea.

Re: Kevin Owens could be headed back to NXT roster

Well, NXT is now being marketed as a legit 3rd brand. They need recognizable faces on the show if they're going to avoid being seen by the new viewers as a bunch of nobodies.

I say that as a huge NXT fan. The casuals have literally no idea who anyone on the NXT roster is. We see this every time someone is called up to zero reaction. An injection of RAW and SDL main eventers into the NXT show is absolutely needed if the show is to be successful on actual TV. This is the problem that NXT faces. People want it to be successful, but if success means a spot on a TV channel, the show is no longer catering to hardcore fans with a liking for workrate matches. The product will change massively once it starts on USA ... and will almost certainly lose it's unique feel.

I don't see why it's inconceivable that Owens will be on NXT. They are going to throw everything they can at it.

Re: Kevin Owens could be headed back to NXT roster

So they make Owen's look like an absolute dork before sending him packing to NXT? That would be idiotic as fuck, so I can fully see it happening.

A talent of his caliber being sent to work in front of 400 people weekly should absolutely see that as a demotion. Not like Owens is a needle mover at this point as well, wouldn't mean shit against AEW.

Re: Kevin Owens could be headed back to NXT roster

I could them sending him back to NXT, just to give them ammunition against AEW. Even though I thought Vince wasn't worried about AEW.........

The fact that he teased it should tell you it's not happening.

KO will be back, maybe even by next week and it'll get us at least one more KO/Shane match, probably for HIAC.
