Kevin Owens appeared at NXT TakeOver tonight in the main event, teaming with Tomasso Ciampa and his team.
The spot had been left empty ahead of tonight’s TakeOver event. Ciampa’s team, which consisted of himself, Donavan Dijakovic and Keith Lee, entered by themselves and without a fourth partner. After everyone had entered the ring, the timer started again for the last person to enter the ring. After the timer was up, Kevin Owens’ music hit.
The match continued for a while following the reveal. Adam Cole at one point hit the Panama Sunrise on Owens on top of the metal plating that connected both of the rings. Cole, however, was eventually taken out by a gigantic air raid clash by Tommaso Ciampa off the top of the cage through two tables and was pinned.
It wasn’t made clear if Owens’ would be a regular in NXT full time or if this was for one night only. Owens is representing Team Raw tomorrow at Survivor Series.
