Opinion on: Finn Balor returning to NXT?
We want to give you the opportunity to share your opinions on all things professional wrestling!
Today we ask you; What is your opinion on Finn Balor returning to NXT? Last week on NXT we witnessed a phenomenal NXT Championship match between NXT Champion Adam Cole and “The Original Bro” Matt Riddle. Ultimately in the end the NXT Champion Adam Cole would come out on top, retaining his prized NXT Championship in the process. However, it was what happened after the match had ended that got the NXT Universe talking.
Suddenly, Finn Balor’s distinctive music hit! Balor has been on a hiatus ever since getting destroyed at SummerSlam in August by The Fiend in Bray Wyatt’s new personality’s first match in a WWE ring.
During that time Balor has publicly been on holiday recuperating and getting married. Recent reports suggested that he would be back in October as Balor is scheduled to face Shinsuke Nakamura on some upcoming international tours. However, as they say, card is always subject to change!
Last week, Balor’s music hit and the Irishman had the NXT Arena at Full Sail University rocking. Balor quickly entered the ring to confront a stunned NXT Champion Adam Cole. Regardless of the surprise return to the black and gold brand, many were quick to assume that this would be a one night return or only a slightly longer stay at most.
However, that all changed when Balor grabbed a microphone and claimed that from now on “Finn Balor is NXT” suggesting a full-time return to the brand he helped build.
Balor is the longest reigning NXT Champion of all time and the inaugural WWE Universal Champion. This adds some much needed star power in the “Wednesday Night Wars” NXT finds themselves in with AEW Dynamite on TNT during the same time slot as NXT on the USA Network.
But what is your opinion on Finn Balor returning to NXT? Is it a step down for the former Universal Champion? or is this the best thing for Balor now to rebuild some momentum and carry the NXT brand once again?
