In a recent interview with the Chad Dukes Wrestling Show NXT’s Kevin Owens issued an open challenge and name dropped Samoa Joe:
I feel like Adam Cole would be a great addition to NXT, a guy like Cedric Alexander also would be really good but they’d all have to come through me first and that won’t work out that good. Samoa Joe: “I’m open to a challenge from anyone, including Samoa Joe, I’ll just put that one out there.”
Joe is expected to join NXT after Wrestlemania.
Owens also discussed his admiration for Brock Lesnar and how he named his dog after him:
As a fan him, re-signing is incredibly exciting. As a competitor, it’s even better because of the chance of getting to be in that ring with him one day is something that motivates me. I’ve been a Brock Lesnar fan since the first time I saw him. I was there when he made his debut in Montreal, the night after WrestleMania 18 and from the get go I was like, ‘this guy’s awesome.’ I even named my dog Brock as a tribute, whatever you wanna call it, so I’m a big fan of his. The fact that he’s gonna be sticking around here for a while and gonna do great things with WWE is exciting all around but yeah I’d love to be in the ring with him.
