Former WWE Universal and NXT Champion Finn Balor talked with Rebellious Noise about his infamous "Jack The Ripper" entrance at NXT Takeover: London back in December 2015. You can watch the interview above.
"I've always tried to keep the paint somehow geographically referenced to the building I was in. In Brooklyn we did a lot of the gargoyles, that was a historical reference to Brooklyn. We tried to do something a little different in London, and it was the first idea that came to my head. The office, they went with it. I didn't realize how well the production team were going to shoot, and the screens they put right behind me making it look like the street, even like this one shot when the camera pans out. I can't even explain it.
"It's one of the coolest shots -- where it's like a silhouette of me but then because of the light and the way the camera moves you can actually see the paint there. It was mind blowing. As much as I'd like to take all the credit for how cool that looked, it was none of my doing at all. It was all of the camera men, the production crew, the lighting crew. That night in London was definitely a special moment, not only for the fact that I defended my title and my parents were there. So many of my old friends were in the crowd, and just being back in London after not knowing when I'd be back. It was kind of like a re-coming together of a lot of aspects of my life that I wouldn't have thought would align. So it was pretty cool."
Finn Balor is one of the competitors in the Extreme Rules Fatal Five Way taking place in Baltimore on June 4th.
