Kevin Owens Tells NXT Rival Sami Zayn: 'It's Nothing Personal'
NXT opponents are more than familiar with one another - and they lock up again tonight...
Vicious competitor Kevin Owens has baited long-time rival Sami Zayn, coolly telling him that wrenching away the NXT championship will be "nothing personal".
The 30-year-old brawler, who has steamrollered his way through the division since making his debut at December's NXT R: Evolution show, gets his shot at the champ during tonight's NXT Takeover: Rival special.
Owens and Zayn have a storied past, having teamed together and fiercely battled one another over the last decade in independent promotions such as CZW, PWG and ROH.
But tonight's NXT show will prove to be the biggest platform for their conflict - and if their match lives up to their previous contests, it could prove one of 2015's most scintillating match ups.

And watch the pair - no doubt - leave it all in the ring by watching NXT Takeover: Rival, exclusively at 1am tonight on the WWE Network.
