'NXT' Is the WWE's "Building" League, So What's Finn Balor Doing Back There?

By

It's a pretty great time to be a pro-wrestling fan. There are some awesome "alternative" organizations that are managing to draw top talent and put on incredible shows, like AEW. But even if you're someone who just sticks to the WWE, then you've got a plethora of programs to watch in addition to Monday Night RAW and SmackDown! which now airs Friday nights on FOX. There's also its "builder's" league, NXT, which just got Finn Balor back.

If you're unfamiliar with NXT, it airs on USA on Wednesdays at 8 p.m. ET, and features the next crop of WWE stars and hopefuls that want to make a splash with fans. It's a "proving grounds" for pro-wrestlers who can work their personas while simultaneously familiarizing themselves with audiences — the better they do in NXT, then the greater the chance they have at making it to one of the "big shows" like RAW or SmackDown!
