Triple H has promised that Finn Balor is far from the last main roster star that we will see moving to NXT on a permanent basis.
Balor made his return a couple of weeks ago to an insane reception and has since shocked the world by turning heel on Johnny Gargano.
Appearing on the debut episode of Corey Graves’ new “After the Bell” podcast, Trips was asked whether he thinks more people will be following in Finn’s footsteps.
“I do, yeah, I think now this is sort of the template of whatever is on the table. I think that as… if you look at the roster, there are going to be times when they’re like, ‘look, until the next draft comes or whatever this talent is here but they’ve kind of worked with everybody, and we’re gonna finish up this program with them and then we almost kind of inherently need to sit them down for three months, or six months, or whatever that is, just to clear this up so we can get to this other side and when we do the switch it’s new again.’ Great, give ‘em to me, I’ll take ‘em. You mentioned the territories… I’ll take ‘em. Here’s the window and here’s what I’m gonna do with you in that window, for the most part, barring all the other things that could happen. It’s a cool opportunity.”
Finn is of course not the first person to have done so, with both Tyler Breeze and Fandango moving back to the developmental brand in 2019.
