Finn Balor has commented on his current heel run, noting that his stint as a babyface was very much a WWE directive.
While he has competed as a good guy for a large portion of his WWE career, Balor is currently aligned with the Judgment Day faction, and has been wreaking havoc with the group since June 2022.
Speaking on WWE After The Bell, Balor noted that wrestling as a heel comes to him more naturally than competing as a face.
Stating that his face run was a WWE directive based on how they saw him, Balor said:
“This has been the goal since I first put on a pair of wrestling boots. You know, I was born to be a heel.
“When I started this at 18 years old, I was a heel for years upon years and it wasn’t until I came to NXT in my first run that I started to learn or to be taught how to be a babyface.
“It was something that was kind of very much a WWE directive. That’s how they saw me, but that’s not really how I see myself.
“It’s been very much an exploratory and a couple of months for me and kind of getting back to what I feel I do best, or at least what makes me happiest in the ring.
“I don’t know if it’s what I actually do best, but it’s what I enjoyed the most, so I’ve really thrived personally in the last couple months, I feel.”
Balor also shared his honest thoughts on his Demon persona, and how it became a ‘crutch’ for him in WWE, which you can read more about right here.
At Money in the Bank 2023, Balor will challenge for Seth Rollins’ WWE World Heavyweight Championship.
