Finn Balor made his return to a WWE ring at tonight's WWE NXT TV tapings from the campus of the University of Central Florida, as seen in the video above.

After a TJ Perkins vs. Shinsuke Nakamura match that was apparently taped for the March 22nd NXT episode, Nakamura was attacked by Andrade "Cien" Almas and NXT Champion Bobby Roode. They double teamed Nakamura until Balor arrived for the save to a big pop.

Balor clotheslined Almas out of the ring and faced off with Roode before hitting him with a Slingblade. Nakamura then hit the Kinshasa on Roode. Balor cut a promo and said he's coming back for what's his soon, presumably the WWE Universal Title. Balor added that he's not medically cleared to return but he will be back sooner than later.

Balor then said that he had one thing to say to Nakamura... that Friday is Nakamura's birthday! Balor wished Shinsuke a happy birthday and ended it with a "we are NXT!" to the crowd. This segment with Balor was a dark segment.

Below are fan photos of Balor's return and a video WWE posted:
