Finn Balor shows up on SmackDown

Look who is back on the main roster.

When he originally signed with WWE back in 2014, Finn Balor spent two years ruling the roost down in NXT. He was called up in 2016, went through heartbreak and triumph, too many ups and downs to count, and ultimately found his way back to NXT in 2019. That’s where he’s been ever since.

Until now.

Indeed, while Sami Zayn was complaining about the ongoing conspiracy against him by those in power at WWE, Balor’s music hit and he made his presence felt on the main roster once more. He didn’t speak, instead opting to simply lay Zayn out and send him packing to the delight of the many fans at the Toyota Center in Houston, Texas for this week’s episode of Friday Night SmackDown.

They talked about him like he’s going to be a permanent member of the roster moving forward and, really, it makes the most sense. There isn’t anything left for him to do in NXT after two separate highly successful runs there.
