Regal tells them to be quiet. He says that he brought them here to tell them that they will face each other to determine the number one contenders for the NXT Tag Team Titles.

Enzo says that they don’t think they have to beat The Vaudevillains but then Regal says something and Enzo is okay with that.

It is time to take a look at Part Three of the look at Finn Balor.

Finn says that he was talking to Triple H and he says that creativity spawns creativity. He mentions the fan art that inspires him. He says that he enjoys being able to inspire fans to draw and paint. Sami Zayn takes a look at some of the things that were given to Finn. Sami says that he loves fan art as well.

Finn says that it was until he was comfortable in the ring for him to mix the two. We see a photo of Dusty Rhodes showing Finn around the Performance Center. Finn says that in Europe or Japan, you don’t know how many people you can reach and he felt like an unknown. We see Finn’s first interview with Renee Young.

Jason says that everyone wants to be the best and he says that Fergal wants to be the best. He does not flaunt. He goes out there and does it. That is the best way to do it.

He mentions the first time he went to the ring and he did not know what would happen. He got the cue and Prince Devitt flashed on the screen and he cannot describe the feeling. The acceptance from the crowd meant that he knew he did something right. The first time out, it felt like a hero’s welcome.

Finn McCool was a mythical hero that battled the one eyed demon king. He mentions that his father was Finton so it is a tribute to his father.

We see Finn practicing his entrance. Jason says that there wasn’t much that Finn was going to be taught. He was going to have to be taught how to react to the cameras without pandering to them. We see Triple H showing Finn what to do. Finn says he was told that they are shooting movies and you want to get all of the shots at the best angles. At the end of the day, they are putting out a product for the people.

We see Finn returning to Ireland and he mentions it has changed in his time away. He says NXT is his home today. Some Irish fans talk about seeing his first match in Ireland as part of the WWE. Finn says that five years ago, he would not have believed that he would be wrestling in the building he grew up watching shows. He says that it felt great to be in the ring with his family watching. Finn says it was one of the most memorable moments of his career. For this day, he was just Fergal.

He says that he is a bit shy, humble, and an introvert. When the demon war paint goes on, he feels different. It unveils his inner demon.

It is not just paint and a show. It is being able to channel a more aggressive side of his personality. It will make him a stronger wrestler and a stronger person. He says he has a short attention span and he likes to change things up. He has been able to change up his designs.

Fergal says that he wants to be recognized the same in five years. In the ring, you get to forget about what is going on in the world and you can focus on what you love.

He says he left Japan last April and he did not think he would ever see his friends again after saying good bye to them. To return to Tokyo to face Kevin Owens, it is an understatement. We see him with Karl Anderson.

Jason says that it will be crazy when he goes back to Japan. He says that without the Japanese fans, he would not be here right now. Becky says that Finn knows his potential and he will do it. Finn says that everyone has potential, but it is different to realize it. He has set a lot of short term goals and very few long term goals. Becky says that he is the future of the business.

We see fans talking about Finn Balor. Becky says that if someone deserves the success they are getting, it is Fergal. The impact he has had is unbelievable. Jason says that he hopes for nothing but success for Fergal. Finn says he senses something and he has a good time in the ring. He would rather fail miserably in something new than just get by.

Everywhere he went, he has improved it and made it a better place. He did it in England, then Japan. Now he is doing it in NXT and wants to do it in the WWE.

We are told that the Finn Balor special will air Thursday night at 10:30 PM on the WWE Network in case you missed any of the three parts.
