How Balor feels about his NXT return up to this point Submitted by Aaron T-Bar Rift on 01/09/2021 at 11:48 AM
WWE NXT Champion Finn Balor recently did an interview with DigitalSpy.com and talked about his return to the NXT brand:
"You can make a lot of decisions in this business that you regret but I feel like the thing that affirms that I made the right decision is the different talent Iíve gotten to work with since Iíve been in NXT, people Iíve never worked with before in the past."
"(Going to NXT has) helped me push myself to the limit and take myself out of the comfort zone that I was in on Raw and SmackDown and really kind of challenge myself in the ring. So thatís definitely been the kind of thing that affirms Iíve made the right decision to come back to NXT."
"Getting the opportunity to work with Matt Riddle, Johnny Gargano, Tommaso Ciampa, Damian Priest, all these guys Ė it was the first time Iíd ever wrestled them Ė and then pushing myself in the ring against Adam Cole, whoís someone I had very rare interactions with and more recently with Kyle (OíReilly)."
Finn Balor made his return to WWE in October 2019 after a two-month absence, moving from SmackDown to NXT. Balor's move from the main roster to what is meant to be WWE's developmental brand was unique, but a year on and after winning the NXT Championship, Balor says he knows he made the right decision to go back to where he started in WWE.
