Prince Devitt made his debut on NXT yesterday and what name does WWE give him? Finn Balor. Yes, Finn Balor. Here are some images from Prince Devitt, I mean, Finn Balor's first NXT match (Finn's tag team partner is Japanese wrestler Kenta, now called Hideo Itami). There was a video of this match posted by a fan on YouTube, but WWE quickly shut it down. Read more about what transpired here. So anyway, more about the name Finn Balor. 411 Mania reports that "this isn't necessarily a point at random dictionary word situation. Balor is a figure in Celtic mythology, the king of the Fomorians and a god of blight. The name is likely an homage of sorts to Devitt's Irish nationality." What do you think of the name Finn Balor?
