So with Owens dropping the NXT belt, he had better be booked to take the US title off of Cena or they will of completely ruined all of his momentum.
I think Owens winning at Battlegrounds will be his permanent ascension to the main WWE roster. I think his crossovers have been leading to it. There's no place on Earth where his defeating Cena for the belt doesn't make complete sense. Sadly, I don't think we'll see him on NXT any time soon, but Owens winning at Battlegrounds really adds some much needed prestige to the U.S. Title (not to mention some of the best series of matches WWE proper has seen in a couple of years).
Really happy with the Japan show overall. The main event was a waste of space, but the rest was top shelf stuff. Happy for Finn, in a GREAT title match, a "better than expected" Neville/Jericho match, a "Nicki Bella can have good match" match, a Lesnar "Funeral Day" bury match, and hum-drum house show Cena match. Good stuff on a very Japan-centric show.
