The final NXT event for Finn Bálor was Saturday night in Houston — same goes for a few others call ups — and they were all given an emotional send-off from Bayley.
Bayley hit the ring after the show’s main event and called Mojo Rawley, Nia Jax and Carmella into the ring as she said nice things about each one. The entire NXT roster then filled the stage.
Balor took the microphone afterward and heavily praised head coach Matt Bloom … saying, ” He singlehandedly, from the day he took over at the Performance Center, changed the way we treat NXT from the inside.” Adding, “Before Matt Bloom was here, it was a struggle. And now, every single day we walk into the Performance Center, we walk in with a smile. And it’s thanks to that man!”
Finn also put over the entire NXT roster and gave props to wrestlers like Andrade ‘Cien‘ Almas, Johnny Gargano, Tommaso Ciampa, Daria Berenato and Hideo Itami.
