While the conversation did take place, Kevin owens did not return to NXT for a long time. He solely had an appearance during WarGames.
Even though the appearance was short lived, his return was something special. The crowd went absolutely ballistic, as NXT has its own range of followers that do not really follow the main roster anymore.

Why Main Roster Stars Choose NXT
Kevin Owens is not the only who returned to NXT. Other stars have done or requested the same.
One of those stars is none other than Finn Balor. His reasons for doing so were quite similar to those of K.O.
Aside from winning the WWE Universal Championship as soon as it existed, Finn Balor did not do much on the main roster. While you could blame the injury, it was clear Vince did not invest much in the Irish star.
Finn Balor eventually decided to return to NXT with some success. But it is clear the main roster has quite a problem.
Main Roster Missing Opportunities
Think about the enigmatic stars the main roster lost over the past year or so. This is not limited to Finn Balor, but also Dean Ambrose and Rusev.
Some stars went back to NXT, while others left the company completely. Among those who left are some really big names!
Rusev is probably the biggest loss the main roster suffered in recent memory. And while he has not signed with a rival competition, many expect him to do so when his no compete clause ends.
While the WWE has popular stars to use, including Rusev with Rusev Day, they do not seem to capitalize on it. We could ask why, but Arn Anderson had the answer to this question.
In a recent interview, Anderson stated Vince cannot stand wrestlers who get popular by their own merit. Unless he pushes them, he will not capitalize on it.
Unfortunately, tactics like this continue to hurt WWE.
