Fergal Devitt (born 25 July 1981) is an Irish professional wrestler signed to WWE, where he performs on the Raw brand under the ring name Finn Bálor.

Devitt is widely known for his tenure with New Japan Pro Wrestling (NJPW) as Prince Devitt, where he is a three-time IWGP Junior Heavyweight Champion and six-time IWGP Junior Heavyweight Tag Team Champion, having held the title twice with Minoru and four times with Ryusuke Taguchi. He is also a two-time winner of the Best of the Super Juniors tournament, having won in 2010 and 2013, and was a founding member of the Bullet Club stable. Through NJPW's working relationship with Mexican promotion Consejo Mundial de Lucha Libre (CMLL), Devitt also wrestled there, becoming a one-time NWA World Historic Middleweight Champion. He also wrestled for numerous independent promotions, becoming a one-time ICW Zero-G Champion, one-time British Cruiserweight Champion, and a two-time NWA British Commonwealth Heavyweight Champion.

After signing with the WWE he joined their developmental brand NXT, where he became NXT Champion, holding it for just 77 days, the second shortest reign. Shortly after he joined the main roster where he won a tournament to become number one contender to the WWE Championship at Survivor Series, where he along with AJ Styles lost a triple threat to Roman Reigns. Since then Bálor has been a member of the WWE's Bullet Club and is recognised as the longest WWE Mixed Tag Team Champion at 325 days alongside Alexa Bliss, but he had to relinquish the title due to a shoulder injury. Bálor alongside James Harrison and Cesaro won the inaugural World Cup of Wrestling in 2016.

Bálor along with James Harrison is one of only two people to be a member of both The Empire of Pain and Bullet Club.
