Finn Balor Thinks His Last WWE NXT Run Was The Best Work Of His Career


Finn Balor made an appearance on this week’s episode of The Bump. 

During, it looked back on his second run in NXT from 2019-2021. He just made his return to the main roster last Friday on SmackDown. 

“[If he accomplished everything he wanted to during his second run in NXT] Everything and more,” Balor answered. “The idea of going back to NXT was to give Finn Balor a break from RAW and a break from SmackDown. It was to reset the character. It wasn’t supposed to be anything more than three months. It was to give me a little rest off TV, rest off the road and to kind of give me a reboot and revamp. Obviously, things folded a lot differently than we expected; it turned into a two-year run almost in NXT.

“For me, personally, I feel like it’s the best work that I’ve put into my career. To do that at 19 – 20 years into your career is quite strange. I really feel like I’ve just started to come into my best stride in NXT in recent months. I’m so grateful, obviously, for the opportunity to be in NXT and to be part of a new NXT landscape that’s completely changed. The guys there have completely changed the boundaries of what NXT is. To be in the ring with guys like Kyle [O’Reilly], guys like Pete [Dunne], it’s impossible to not have a good time.”
