Kevin Owens On His NXT Cameo, Grayson Waller Eyeing WrestleMania XL, NXT New Year’s Evil



Kevin Owens made a surprise appearance at last night’s NXT New Year’s Evil TV tapings, attacking Grayson Waller, who faced Trick Williams in the main event.

During a post-match interview, Owens explained his attack on Waller. He said,

“I was watching at home, I don’t live too far from here, and once I saw that Grayson Waller was gonna be involved, I figured, what better what to start 2024 than by getting some payback for the broken hand? He and Theory broke my hand, and then I figured Theory might not be there, so great opportunity. Now 2024 is off to a great start, and Friday I make it better by beating Santos Escobar and moving on, winning the whole tournament, and then I go on to the Royal Rumble, beat Logan Paul, restore some sort of prestige to the US Title because he’s done a hell of a job bringing it way down. Then 2024, we’re rocking.”

In a recent interview with The Collection, Grayson Waller discussed his goals for WrestleMania XL, noting that he hopes to earn a slot on the card somehow.

Waller said, I think the roster in WWE right now is stacked, like from top to bottom it’s kind of crazy. When you look at the SmackDown roster, which I’m a part of, you’ve got Roman Reigns, who’s the champion and sometimes he’s not even there, but those shows are still stacked. So, for me, personally, it’s not about a person for WrestleMania 40, it’s more about being on that card. I got to attend last year with NXT, we were up in the box and watching it, and I told myself — I was sitting with Carmelo Hayes, at the time we were kind of a little bit closer friends, and I said to him, ‘This is us next year.’ And we both had that same vibe. So for me, personally, it’s all about getting on WrestleMania and being on that card I don’t care who’s across from me type of thing.”
