Finn Balor appeared on WWE Backstage to talk about his shocking actions at the end of this week’s episode of NXT.
For those of you that missed it, Balor turned on Johnny Gargano and Tommaso Ciampa while The Undisputed Era looked on. Balor stopped short of actually joining The Undisputed Era.
Balor’s explanation for returning to NXT was simple. He feels the main roster is like Hollywood but NXT is like broadway.
“I want to go back to being the real me,” Balor said. He also said it was great to kick Gargano in the head and seeing the fans speechless.
“I felt like maybe I haven’t been true to myself for a long time,” Balor added. He also said that a lot of people want a piece of him this week.
Booker pointed out that Balor has a different look in his eyes. Balor responded, “I say this is the real Finn Balor. You’re a big fan of my work from before WWE, right?” He continued, “Let’s just say the Prince is back.”
That’s an obvious reference to his previous name, Prince Devitt. Balor recently returned to NXT after taking time off to get married and recharge.
