“Oh, my God!” she replied before explaining her friendship with Balor. “Well, we had an awesome story… it wasn’t even a storyline. We kind of made it up ourselves in NXT. He sprained his ankle, so he wasn’t having a match. Everybody thought it would be funny if I did his entrance cause my character was just so, whatever. And then they loved it so much it got so many views on YouTube, and then he did my entrance, and then they started teaming us up together on NXT shows. I think people liked it because it was such different characters. He was The Demon, and teaming us up together was insane. Finn Balor reveals his desire to face this top WWE superstar.

He’s married to a beautiful woman, and he seems so happy. That was so much fun. We had so much fun with each other.”
