NXT 2.0

Kevin Owens Comments On Changes Made Since NXT 2.0 Launch

Kevin Owens recently appeared as a guest on the TVA Sports’ wrestling podcast, les Anti-Pods de la Lutte, with Pat Laprade and Kevin Raphael, for an in-depth interview covering all things pro wrestling.

During the discussion, the longtime WWE veteran gave his thoughts on the changes he has noticed from NXT to the current version of NXT 2.0.

Featured below is an excerpt from the interview where he touches on this topic with his thoughts.

“Today’s NXT is very different than the NXT I was part of, to the point I believe it should have a totally different name, and I don’t think it’s better or worse, but it’s just too different. So when I’m watching NXT, I don’t see the NXT I was part of. It’s not the same thing. It’s a little bit like Ring of Honor. The ROH of old days and the ROH now, it’s just not the same thing. So to me, it’s completely two different products, so when I’m watching it, I put myself in the mindset we had when I was at NXT and the mindset there seems to have right now, it’s completely different. It’s very hard for me to compare them. I don’t even consider that to be the same show. I don’t really feel any attachment to NXT now.

“Listen, there are very talented people working there, and I have watched the last TakeOver show they did and there were parts of it that I thought was really good, but it’s like a few years ago, if they had asked me to go back to NXT, I would have said yes. But f they would ask me that now, I don’t think I would be as receptive to go back, because it’s not the same thing. I don’t think I fit in the new NXT as I was fitting in the NXT I was part of, with guys like Sami, Finn, Samoa Joe and Nakamura. When I watch NXT now, I don’t feel the same thing I felt when I was watching NXT two years ago.”
