WWE surprised fans when they moved the first-ever Universal Champion Finn Balor back to NXT. Over one year later, and Balor is NXT Champion and enjoying his time at the top.
Finn Balor spoke to After The Bell and revealed that his first impression was that he was only going back to NXT for a few months. He had not idea it would be this long of a visit to the black and gold brand, but he’s not complaining.
“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.”
We’ll have to see how much longer Finn Balor has in NXT, but it doesn’t appear that he will be leaving any time soon. He has a pretty good spot in NXT as a veteran on the roster, even though he actually considers himself as a rookie.
