Video: Sami Zayn talks injury, Kevin Owens' Raw debut, NXT Takeover Unstoppable

"Hey guys, Sami here. A lot of people have been messaging me asking me... a lot of concern about how I'm feeling going into this big match with Kevin (Owens) tomorrow at 'Takeover' as far as, first, my health and my shoulder and I guess a lot of people are asking how I feel, as well, about Kevin showing up on Raw and making an impact the way he did with John Cena. As far as my injury goes I think it's pretty common knowledge now I'm not at 100-percent. I'm not going to hide that, although it would be smart to hide that. It seems Kevin already knows this, everyone already knows this. The truth is I'm not 100-percent but I'm good to go. I've battled through worse, that's not going to be a problem. The match is not so there's not much to consider as far as that goes.

"As far as Kevin showing up on Raw, you know, I'm happy for him. I didn't think I would be but I was, I was happy to see him on TV. It was a pretty big deal. He's worked long and hard to get here and I wish I could say I was just happy for him but we're at that pretty complicated point in our relationshp where happiness is not the only thing I'm going to feel when I see something like that. I would be lying if I said there wasn't a tinge of jealousy, a little bit of anxiety, I guess, just due to the uncertainty of the situation for myself and for him, and just for whatever is going to happen between us in the future.

"The bottom line is this match is tomorrow and the NXT championship is on the line. So as far as I'm concerned, Kevin, you're probably on cloud nine right now but you better be ready for the fight of your life because I'm bringing it tomorrow."
