Many superstars have snuck their way onto the WrestleMania stage, without anyone from the WWE Universe knowing or realising it.
Sasha Banks, Charlotte, and Alexa Bliss were involved with Triple H's entrance at WrestleMania XXX, former superstar CM Punk was a gangster during John Cena's entrance at WrestleMania 22, and even Diamond Dallas Page drove Rhythm 'N Blues Cadillac at WrestleMania VI before he became a superstar.
Current NXT Champion Finn Balor is the next wrestler that has managed to sneak their way onto The Showcase of The Immortals without anyone of the WWE Universe knowing. Here's how he did it.

Triple H - as always - had an elaborate entrance at WrestleMania for his WWE World Heavyweight Championship match against Roman Reigns. His entrance included several people wearing skull masks, dressed up in black, and carrying replica WWE Championships. You can see them at around the 2:17 mark in the video further down this article.
However, according to Wrestling Inc: "Finn Balor was one of the people in costume for Triple H's entrance." Sneaky by the NXT Champion!
Main Roster debut?
It was widely speculated prior to their NXT Championship match at NXT TakeOver: Dallas last Friday night, either Balor or Samoa Joe could be making their main roster debut at either WrestleMania 32 or on the first Monday Night Raw after The Showcase of The Immortals, depending on the winner of their bout.
If Balor won, Joe would be making the main roster, and vice versa. However, both dates have since passed and neither star appeared on neither show - despite the fact Balor won the match - and none of them have appeared in the SmackDown spoiler column from this week, although you'll have to watch the show to be sure.
We should fully expect Balor to make his main roster debut sometime within the next year. NXT already has the stars to replace him in the likes of Samoa Joe, Hideo Itami, and Austin Aries. His rise in popularity over the past year since becoming NXT Champion shows he is ready for the jump.
As for a possible first feud on the main roster, it depends on if he debuts as a face or heel. He has the popularity to be a face, and his demon look gives him the ability to be a heel. This leaves the door open for him to feud with several superstars, but ultimately, Balor is good enough to go for one of the minor titles in the WWE straight away.
