Former NXT Champion Finn Bálor made a surprise return to Full Sail University earlier tonight … and he’s apparently there to stay.
Bálor confronted current NXT Champion Adam Cole following his victory over Matt Riddle in the opening match of tonight’s episode of NXT on the USA Network.
“As of now, Finn Bálor is NXT,” the Irishman proclaimed.
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.
Check out the video of Finn’s return below.
