WWE star Finn Balor was recently interviewed by TV Insider to talk about several professional wrestling topics.
Here are the highlights:
Not just being a part of the NXT brand, but being the NXT brand:
I’m not part of this brand. I am the brand. When Finn’s gone, nobody is watching. When Finn’s there, everybody is watching. We talk about Johnny Gargano, the heart of NXT. He is this NXT darling. He was champion for 57 days. Finn Bálor was champion for 292 days, so if the heart of NXT was a 57-day champ, there are some big issues.
The shackles now being completely off:
The shackles have been on for way too long. I kind of been put in a little box, locked in this cage and being this one-trick pony. The shackles are completely off. I’m going to go back to what I like to do, which is just being myself and going out there no holds barred and have a little fun.
If we’ll see “The Demon” again:
You’re about to see a whole new side of Finn. I’m not going to give you any spoilers, but it’s going to be a wild ride… It’s easier for the mice to dance when the cats are away. It feels like things are a bit out of control. It feels more the wild, wild west. There is a new sheriff in town. The prince is back, so we’ll see how things develop in the next couple of weeks.
