DETAILS BEHIND PRINCE DEVITT'S NEW WWE PERSONA

By Mike Johnson on 2014-09-27 13:56:21
Prince Devitt, now known as Finn Balor, sent out the following yesterday via Twitter to explain the origins of his new ring name:

"Finn" is from the term "Fionn mac Cumhaill", the Irish translation of the name of a mythical warrior. "Balor" is Celtic for "Deadly One."

So, the origin of the name is similar to the origins of Itami (which translates into "pain" in Japanese) in the new ring name for the former KENTA.
