Finn Balor’s previous gimmicks saw him as Fergal and Prince Devitt. He understands character psychology and now it seems he will be bringing back his previous gimmicks with his return to NXT.
Balor spoke to the State Of Combat podcast, where he talked about what fans should expect from his current run in NXT. He will bring parts of his older gimmicks and make a unique character in NXT. Here is what he said:
“I’m going to draw the 19-year career in the ring that I have had. We are going to get elements of Fergal Devitt on the indies in the United Kingdom. We’re going to get elements of Prince Devitt the babyface from New Japan. We’re going to get elements of Prince Devitt the babyface in Mexico.”
“We’re going to get elements of the leader of The Bullet Club from New Japan. We’re going to get elements of The Demon’s debut from NXT. We’re going to get elements of the guy who beat Roman Reigns his first night on Raw. We’re going to get a combination of everything that you have ever seen associated with Fergal Devitt/Prince Devitt/Finn Balor/Demon King/Demon on Wednesday nights.”
Fans are certainly excited to see what Balor will be able of with his new gimmick. He is currently engaged in a feud with Johnny Gargano.
