finn balor

Finn Balor has been moved around quite a big throughout his WWE career. Originally he debuted with NXT where he found success before getting called up to the main roster where he became the first ever Universal Champion. A few years later Finn was moved back to NXT, and then last year he was once again called up to the main roster.

Recently Finn Balor talked about all the moves on Out Of Character with Ryan Satin and he revealed that he actually wanted to go to NXT UK before returning to the main roster, but it just didn’t work out.

“I wasn’t super excited about the idea of returning to the main roster. I felt like there was potential for me to perform in NXT UK and perform with all those guys. That was something that I felt super interested in. I pitched the idea to [Triple H] at the time.

“They were interested in it, but they were going to have to renegotiate my contract because there was budget restrictions and it was just going to prove too difficult, and maybe it wasn’t a smart move career-wise at this age. I’ve become very aware that there might be a clock starting to tick. I’m more aware of that now than I was five years ago. I thought, well, I really need to get a good run on the main roster. They came to me with the idea of coming back and working with Roman [Reigns] and how could you turn that down right? It was a no-brainer.”

Finn Balor will team with Damian Priest to face Rey Mysterio and Edge at WWE Clash at the Castle on September 3. Stay tuned for more updates as they become available.
