Finn Balor made his big return to the WWE main roster during Friday Night SmackDown last week. Live fans were there for the first blue brand show in over 18 months, 70 weeks of waiting left fans ready to pop in a huge way.
During WWE The Bump, Finn Balor revealed that the fans were so loud in Houston that he couldn’t even hear his own entrance music when it hit. He was uncertain about his entrance until he was able to catch a glance at his banner on the big screen to make sure it was his cue to enter the picture.
“They were sending me from Gorilla, going ‘Finn go, go, go!’ I’m like, ‘I can’t hear my music, I can’t hear my music.’ They were like ‘it’s playing.’ It was a pretty surreal moment. I was kinda like walking out around the curtain making sure my banners were on the tron, you know? I was like, ‘okay, the banners are up so I know something’s happened,’ so yeah, it was a cool night.”
We’ll have to see what’s next for Finn Balor. He only returned to take out Sami Zayn on SmackDown, but then he made it clear that he is also after championships. Roman Reigns could have a stiff opponent in the future as Balor seeks to win the title back that he never truly lost.
