WWE Star Confirms New Deal Is For Five Years

WWE Star Confirms New Deal Is For Five Years WWE

WWE star Finn Balor has confirmed the length of his new WWE deal, after re-signing with the company earlier this year.

After Balor took to Instagram on April 23 to announce that he “ain’t going nowhere”, reports revealed that the Judgment Day member had signed a multi-year deal with WWE.

Finn Balor has now revealed that he signed a contract extension for five years, meaning that his current deal will expire in 2029.

Discussing his WWE future on What’s The Story, Balor explained:

“Yeah, another extension for five years. I’m super excited. You never know. I remember when I was 20 and I was like, ‘If I make it to 30 I’ll be doing well.’ Then, you’re in your 40s and I’m like, ‘S**t, do they want me to keep doing this? Am I able to keep doing it? How is the body going to feel?’

“We sat down, had a couple of conversations and the feelings were mutual. I wanted to stay, they wanted me to stay. We hashed it out and I couldn’t be happier. It was a weird time. It was six months to when my contract was coming up. ‘S**t, is the end of my run? Is it time to move on?’ Ten years is incredible.

“I lasted for six years in England and I thought, ‘Whatever I do, England is always going to be the biggest chapter of my career.’ Then I went to Japan for eight years. ‘You lasted eight years in Japan. That’s definitely going to be the main chunk of my career.’ Then, I was just going to WWE to see what happens, maybe last two or three years and go back to Ireland or Japan.

“Now, I’m ten years in with another five years to go, fingers crossed they don’t fire me. It’s a pretty wild journey.”

Finn Balor is currently a WWE World Tag Team Champion, alongside JD McDonagh.
