Kevin Owens is certainly one of the top Superstars in WWE and has worked hard to get to where he is right now. His in-ring skills and character work took him to the top of the industry. He honed his craft in the independent circuit before debuting in WWE, and now he could be returning there in the future.
Owens is more than aware of how to get fan reactions, both as a heel as well as a babyface. Triple H took over WWE and has already managed to make a lot of changes that fans approve of.
While speaking on WWE After the Bell, Kevin Owens talked about his excitement over Shinsuke Nakamura facing off against the Great Muta for Pro Wrestling NOAH on January 1st. Owens hinted at making a return to indie wrestling in the future.
“When I saw the announcement for the match, they had it when Shinsuke’s music hit in the video, it gave me absolute goosebumps. Knowing how incredible that is for the fans, it’s such a treat, it’s such a surprise. You never would have thought that it was something that could happen. Not only is it happening but it’s something I’m sure means a lot for Shinsuke.
Yeah, for sure [I’d like to have matches on the indies.] I’m very deeply rooted in the independent scene. That’s where I came up. I still have so many friends there. There are a few wrestling companies, independent companies that I still hold very near and dear to my heart that I’d love to maybe one day show back up on just for fun whether it’s a promo or maybe it’s a match.
Now it feels like more of a possibility than ever. That’s stuff that over the years I’ve always thought ‘hey man, it’d be really cool if I get to do that one day.’ Now it feels like more of a possibility than ever. And that doesn’t mean it’s going to happen but it feels that it could now. And that’s very exciting. The fans and the wrestlers.
If you get someone from the independent scene, most of the time, you’ll get someone who is very passionate,”
WWE will also carry on with plans for Kevin Owens and Roman Reigns, despite their heated argument after WWE Survivor Series. We will have to wait and see whether Owens will return to the indie circuit or not.
