Former NXT Champion Finn Bálor made a surprise return to WWE NXT last night.
Bálor confronted current NXT Champion Adam Cole following his victory over Matt Riddle in the opening match.
Bálor proclaimed – “As of now, Finn Bálor is NXT.”
Bálor’s last NXT match was on 30 July 2016, when he teamed with Shinsuke Nakamura to defeat Bobby Roode and Samoa Joe. The former Universal Champion recently went on a hiatus from the main roster after losing to “The Fiend” at SummerSlam.
