Men's Royal Rumble winner Edge appeared on NXT last night and teased challenging for the NXT Championship.
Edge interrupted an in-ring segment with NXT Champion Finn Balor and Pete Dunne on last night's show. Edge spoke about how watching NXT as a fan helped him find his passion to get his career back after nine years. He used that passion to win the Royal Rumble -- and that allows him to challenge any champion in WWE.
Edge called Balor and Dunne two of the best. Edge said he sees so much of himself in Dunne -- both the good and the bad -- and said Balor is in a zone that's special to watch.
Balor and Dunne are set to face off for the NXT Championship at TakeOver: Vengeance Day on Sunday, February 14. Edge told them he'll be watching their match. Edge said he's never held the NXT Championship before and going after the title is intriguing. Edge said that if he hasn't made his choice by TakeOver, Balor vs. Dunne might cause him to make it.
As he was leaving the building, Edge was confronted by Karrion Kross. Kross warned Edge that it won't be Balor or Dunne he's facing if he challenges for the NXT Championship -- it'll be Kross after he takes back the title that he never lost. After being threatened by Kross, Edge said words like that could be motivating and could motivate him to come back to NXT. Edge said he doesn't know if Kross would like that.
