The Prizefighter Kevin Owens name-dropped two NXT stars he would call if he ever needed backup.
Kevin Owens has a rich history in NXT’s black and gold era, becoming champion just two months after his debut. Although the Prizefighter is no longer wrestling on NXT, he still has an interest in certain talents on the brand.
During his appearance on WWE’s The Bump, the former Universal Champion spoke about the recent success of The Creed Brothers(Brutus and Julius Creed) and claimed that he’d like to share the ring with the duo.
“There’s a lot of really good talent over there but right now I think The Creed Brothers are kinda head and shoulders above everyone else if I’m gonna be brutally honest. I really love them, I love to be in the ring with them, or if I ever need back up they’re probably guys I would look to.”
At World’s Collide, The Creed Brothers lost the NXT Tag Team Championships to Pretty Deadly following Diamond Mine’s Damon Kemp turning on them during the match. Pretty Deadly then retained the championships against The Creed Brothers in a Steel Cage match on this week’s edition of NXT.
As for Kevin Owens, the former NXT Champion is currently involved in a feud against Austin Theory. The two are set to face each other next week on Monday Night Raw.
