Finn Balor Says he is in no hurry to make it up to the Main Roster


Current NXT Champion Finn Bálor recently appeared on The Taz Show: Bodyslams & Beyond about making the move to NXT from the independent scene and if he wants to be called up to the main roster. Here are the highlights.

On making the move to NXT from the independent scene:

“It was a lot of adjusting, not only to life at the [WWE] Performance Center, which is like a whole different kettle of fish than the dojos I’m used to, but just the whole adjusting to living in the United States. I was used to living at home in Ireland, which is pretty peaceful, [or] Japan, as its own little thing, and then down here in Florida, which is another completely different kind of environment, so [I have undergone] not only transitions in the ring, but a lot of transitions outside the ring too.”

On if he wants to be called up to the main roster:

“A lot of people keep bringing up that question, this ‘when are you getting called up to the quote, unquote main roster?’, but I really believe that the stuff we’re doing down at NXT is going to go down in history as a period of time that has changed the sports entertainment business and I want to be here in NXT and be a part of what we’re doing right now because it really does feel like something special. And there’s this real kind of camaraderie among the boys, [and] really, like, team effort. And it’s something that I’m not in a hurry to step away from. I’m here for the long haul.” Bálor continued, “a lot of people are kind of always focused on what’s coming next and trying to get onto the next thing, but I’m very much living in the moment here at NXT and I’m happy to be flying the flag as NXT Champion.”
