NXT is on its way to become a brand in itself given how great the writing is and how great the performances turn out to be. It is one of the best things happening in the wrestling industry. Because it is small in stature to the main roster, the performers atNXT get the opportunity to have enough screentime and meaningful storylines. And at the helm of its programming is the man who is now the new NXT Champion. Triple H, Seth Rollins and Stephanie McMahon may be doing a great job at being the heels of their premier shows but Owens is carving niche for himself in the most effective way possible. He may be the closest performer who has come to epitomize what a heel should be wrestling.Here are five reasons why-
#5 He\'s relentless
Kevin Owens, ever since he debuted, showcased why he’s relentless. He bulldoozed over CJ Parker and despite a bloody nose, provided the start that NXT Takeover needed to be onits way to become the best show WWE churned out last year. And then the final moment of the night that may last the test of time was him turning heel in the most spectacular way possible after what was the crescendo moment of the year with Zayn’s long impending incarnation as Champion. He delivered a vicious powerbomb to render Zayn unconscious.
The way he won his championship came after his continuous powerbombs to Zayn, who didn’t give up but he looked injured enough for the officials to end the match. Owens stood tall in the ring, without a shadow of a bruise, much like Lesnar after he won at Summerslam over Cena. But this was way more disturbing to watch even for the most hardcore fan.
