Finn Balor got off to a difficult start on the main roster when he suffered an injury at SummerSlam 2016. Balor never reached those heights on the main roster again even after his return.
Now, he has returned to NXT where he has been on a roll since 2019. In a recent interview with Corey Graves on After the Bell, Balor said he didn’t feel like he belonged. Here is the quote, courtesy of Wrestling Inc.:
“I think I’m a lot more centered. Maybe in the past I would not have the confidence in myself or not even realize the level that I was at. In the past I always thought I was the guy on RAW or SmackDown that they left the backdoor open and I snuck in.
I wasn’t really supposed to be there even though I was in the main events with Roman, Braun, all these guys. I didn’t feel like I really belonged and I feel like now in the ring I know I belong. I know I belong in WWE and I know I belong in any ring in the world, whether its here in the United States or abroad.”
Finn Balor also revealed that he thought his return to NXT would be temporary. You can read more about that here.
