As seen on this week’s episode of WWE NXT in Winter Park, Florida at Full Sail University on the USA Network, NXT Champion Adam Cole beat Matt Riddle in the opening contest.
After the match, Balor walked down to the ring and told Cole that he’s back in NXT. Cole left the ring and Balor poised for the crowd.
Balor was last seen in action at the WWE SummerSlam pay-per-view event in Toronto, Ontario at the Scotiabank Arena last month where he lost to Bray Wyatt.
It was reported before the match that Balor had scheduled to take time off from WWE for a month or two in order to recharge his batteries.
