Finn Balor Thought NXT Run Would Be Temporary

Finn Balor Thought NXT Run Would Be Temporary

Finn Balor has been one of the top stars in NXT since returning to the brand in 2019. In the year and a half since his return, Balor has once again become NXT Champion.

However, he has now revealed that he thought his return to the brand would be temporary. During his recent appearance on After the Bell, Balor said he thought he would be on NXT for only three months. Here is the quote, courtesy of Wrestling Inc.:

“I didn’t know what to expect. I was kind of under the impression that it was going to be a 3 month deal. Reboot Finn, reset and go back to RAW or go back to SmackDown, go back to things as normal.

It’s kind of evolved into something I don’t think anyone expected. I think it’s thanks to how NXT is also evolving and really truly its own brand now. I don’t know what to expect going forward, I don’t know how long it’s going to last but I have to say, I’m super happy in NXT and there’s no reason for me to want to move anywhere in my career at this point.”

Finn Balor recently defended his NXT Championship against Pete Dunne at NXT TakeOver Vengeance Day.
