A top WWE star has explained why he was hesitant to join another stable after the Bullet Club.
There is no question that the Bullet Club may be the most influential group of the past two decades in professional wrestling. The stable has spawned successful groups like The Elite and numerous world champions, such as Kenny Omega, AJ Styles and Jay White.
Before any of those men reached the mountaintop under the Bullet Club banner, the entity was created by Prince Devitt, now known as Finn Balor in WWE. The inaugural Universal Champion has seen his stock rise in the company after joining The Judgment Day in 2022.
Speaking with Justin Barrasso of Sports Illustrated, Balor revealed that he was always hesitant to join another stable after his time leading the Bullet Club in NJPW. He said:
“Having had success with BULLET CLUB, I knew there was going to be comparisons made had I been involved in another group, so I was always reluctant to go that direction.”
“However, when the chance to work with Damian (Priest) was presented, I didn’t hesitate for a second. Damian and I have always had a very good relationship since we met at NXT, and I felt that this group could be something completely different.”
“For me personally, I was at a point in my career where I knew that something had to change. So the timing of this was perfect, and very similar to my NJPW turn.”
“Finally, I could channel my real frustrations I was feeling into the character, and I had no doubt that this was the right move.”
Finn Balor is part of The Judgment Day stable alongside WWE Women’s World Champion Rhea Ripley, NXT North American Champion Dominik Mysterio and Señor Money In The Bank Damian Priest.
Balor will look to add more gold to his stable’s collection when he challenges Seth Rollins for the World Heavyweight Championship at WWE SummerSlam this Saturday, August 5. For the full lineup for the show, click here.
