I was a pretty big fan of last night's episode NXT, which I had initially written off as filler. But in between dabbing my eyes to wipe away the tears brought on by the documentary of Hideo Itami's journey from signing with WWE last Spring to appearing at WrestleMania this year, my attention was drawn to a Twitter exchange between the Andre the Giant Memorial Battle Royal participant and the current NXT champ, Kevin Owens...
The footage of Hideo Itami’s path to Wrestlemania on tonight’s @WWENXT episode was so inspiring…Too bad I’ll have to take him out one day.— Kevin Owens (@FightOwensFight) April 9, 2015
Thank you for watching @WWENetwork @WWENXT this episode. I have to study English more... I will be next NXT CHAMP. #fightOwensfight— Hideo Itami / 伊丹英雄 (@HideoItami) April 9, 2015
"@HideoItami: Thank you for watching @WWENetwork @WWENXT this episode. I will be next NXT CHAMP. #fightOwensfight" See you soon.— Kevin Owens (@FightOwensFight) April 9, 2015
...and now I love the episode even more than I thought possible.
Who wants Owens vs. Itami? Like yesterday?
