Onlookers were awestruck this morning when Finn Bálor, an enigmatic Irish professional wrestler currently signed to NXT, made a grandiose, surrealistic entrance at a local Arby’s restaurant.
Bedecked in head-to-toe body-paint depicting the gaping maw of a toothy dragon, Bálor slithered his way into the restaurant amid Wagnerian music and strobe lights.
Patrons watched with a mixture of rapt terror and awe as Bálor writhed, as if demonically possessed, to the counter and ordered two roast beef sandwiches with no mustard and a side of curly fries.
Although fans of World Wrestling Entertainment’s NXT division are familiar with Bálor’s phantasmagorical entrances, the staff and clientele at Arby’s were unprepared for such a macabre spectacle.
Some cheered amid the carnivalesque cacophony, while others wondered how he could possibly follow such a spectacular entrance by eating sandwiches.
“It’s was a bit over-the-top and silly,” said the night manager of the Arby’s, who asked to be identified only as V. Russo.
