Finn Balor makes shock heel turn after attacking Johnny Gargano on NXT

Finn Balor after his heel turn on NXT

Finn Balor did say he was going to make his past his future on NXT this week, and he made a statement in the biggest possible way.

In the first live two-hour episode of the show back at the start of October, Balor returned to the brand where he started out in under the WWE banner.

He hadn't been seen since SummerSlam, where he was obliterated by 'The Fiend' Bray Wyatt, and we learnt during that time that he'd gotten married and he'd clearly had a haircut, as he returned with a fresh buzz cut.

The Irishman with his return declared that he was 'NXT' as of now, but since then we hadn't seen him at Full Sail at all.

But a recorded vignette on last weeks show revealed that he would be there this coming week, although he wasn't advertised for a match he did make a vague statement that 'his past was going to be his future'.

As the show progressed and the main event between Roderick Strong, Keith Lee and Dominik Dijakovic took place, there was still no sign of Balor.

Fans thought they had been misled by his promo last week, but things were about to go down, as all four members of Undisputed Era went face-to-face with Tommaso Ciampa and 'Mr. NXT' himself - Johnny Gargano.

And THEN Balor finally appeared as he narrowed the numbers game ever so slightly to Adam Cole's stable - and then he made the shock move of attacking Gargano as he was taking off his leather jacket.

Ciampa and Full Sail were clearly stunned, and as Cole, Strong, Kyle O'Reilly and Bobby Fish took out Ciampa, Balor kept a watchful eye on his new enemy, and then proceeded to Shotgun Dropkick him through the ringside barrier.

The most brutal move of all though was when Balor hit his Bloody Sunday signature move to Gargano onto the ramp, which looked pretty sickening as he spiked his head in a way that hasn't been sold by anyone before in WWE like that.

With all four members of Undisputed Era holding their hand sign up in the ring, it looked like Balor may be about to become the fifth man.

But he held his old Bullet Club gun finger taunt to Gargano and paced out of Full Sail, leaving UE's offer behind.

Nevertheless, The Real Rock 'n' Rolla is back, and to some it'll be a much-needed personality change for Balor.
