Prince Devitt made his WWE NXT debut at Thursday night's taping as Finn Balor. The debut was taped for the November 6, 2014 episode of NXT when The Ascension came to the ring and called out Hideo Itami.
The following excerpt comes from our exclusive taping coverage by Scott Brooks:
The Ascension came to the ring and called out Hideo. He came to the stage. The lights went out and “Prince Devitt” lit up on the screen and the crowd cheered. It faded into “Finn Balor” and he came out and stood with Hideo. They came to the ring and got the advantage on the Ascension. Balor did a running double stomp onto Viktor on the floor. Balor then hit a double stomp to the back of Konnor’s head while he was kneeled over and Hideo followed up with the Busaiku knee. The two posed together as The Ascension were laid out.
I spoke with Scott about it and he told me the crowd went crazy when Balor's name came on the screen.
