- In the video above, Xavier Woods interviewed Kevin Owens for his UpUpDownDown YouTube channel. During the interview, Woods asked Owens about tonight's NXT: Takeover main event between Samoa Joe and Shinsuke Nakamura. Owens noted that he's faced both, and has beaten Joe, but never Nakamura. He said that Nakamura holds three wins over him, so he is going for Joe. He said that a double count out would be great with him running out and standing tall in the ring.
