The Ascension make their way out. Konnor says Hideo Itami has been beaten down for weeks on end, and tells him to come out to the ring so they can finish what was started at NXT Takeover 2. Hideo comes out to the ramp and is followed by Finn Bálor (Prince Devitt).

They nod to each other and rush the ring, colliding head-first with the Ascension. The crowd is loud with “Finn” chants as they take it to the heels. They hit stereo dropkicks on both members of the Ascension. Konnor rolls out of the ring, but Balor comes off the apron with a double foot stomp.

Viktor gets up and runs into a pele kick from Finn, and a running knee strike from Hideo Itami. Konnor crawls back into the ring with Hideo mocking him, but he gets tagged with another double foot stomp from the top rope. The two stand tall as the crowd chants “dream team” to take NXT off the air.

Fergal Devitt is one of the brightest young talents in wrestling today; having spent most of his career in Japan with NJPW he has now signed with WWE and is a part of the NXT roster.

The 33-year-old from Bray, County Wicklow, Ireland known as Prince Devitt during his time in NJPW where he is a former three-time IWPG Junior Heavyweight Champion and he has also held the IWPG Junior Heavyweight Tag Team titles on six occasions.

On July 28th 2014 the Irish grappler signed with WWE and is part of the NXT roster where he has been given the ring name Finn Bálor.

WWE.COM: Was it the same for you, Fergal? You were a top star in Japan’s biggest promotion before you signed with WWE.

FERGAL DEVITT: I’d been doing it for about six or seven years when I ended up in New Japan. I was really just a boy and I became a man in New Japan in eight years. It came to a point where I could stay the rest of my career there and have the security of a job or I could step into the great unknown that is WWE and challenge myself. And that’s what I decided to do.

WWE.COM: Everyone here comes from a different part of the globe. Is it important for each of you to represent your countries in WWE?

DEVITT: You can teach a lot of things here at the Performance Center, but you can’t teach passion for wrestling. And the five people at this table definitely have it and have had it for a long time. And hopefully, a little bit of that can rub off on the rest of the people here and bring up the whole team.

WWE.COM: At the same time, you’re competing for a main roster spot with bodybuilders and amateur athletes with no wrestling background at all.

DEVITT: I do agree with the lads on most of that, but I do believe that we do need guys like that as well. They add something to the show. It’s like the circus. We need all types of people from all walks of life.

WWE.COM: It’s amazing how the scene repairs itself. One of the early criticisms of the Performance Center was that WWE was killing the indie scene by signing all the top stars …

DEVITT: I would say we’ll probably never be satisfied, and that’s the only reason we’re all here at the moment. It’ll probably be when we’re all 60 and at a Hall of Fame ceremony and we’re still thinking about what we can do next, because that’s what’s driven us. This thirst and hunger to keep pushing forward, I don’t think any of us will ever settle, be it a WrestleMania moment or a World Heavyweight Title. We’re all just going to still want more.

Finn Balor

While you might know him as Prince Devitt“The Real Rock ‘n’ Rolla” or “The Real Shooter”, one thing’s for sure: Finn Bálor will offer the WWE Universe something they’ve never seen before. Born and raised in Bray, County Wicklow, Ireland; Finn is not your average WWE superstar as he brings the wrestling experience of a man who competed in places like Mexico, the UK and Japan. He might not be the “Prince” anymore, but that won’t stop Finn Bálor from claiming his throne in the WWE as the resident Demon King on the SmackDown brand.
