Finn Balor Reveals the Original Plan for When He Returned to NXT

Back at SummerSlam 2019, Finn Balor came up short against The Fiend and was seen as the star’s first victim.

The former Universal Champion, who was once a popular face underwent a drastic change of character and returned to NXT as The Prince, later in the year.

Balor’s return to NXT was an interesting one and in his absence, The Fiend has continued to take out WWE stars one by one.

While it’s unclear as to whether or not Balor and Bray Wyatt’s alter-ego will cross paths again, the current NXT Champion recently revealed to Corey Graves on After The Bell that the original plan when he returned to NXT was for him to remain there for three months.

“I didn’t know what to expect. I was kind of under the impression that it was going to be like a three-month deal, kind of reboot Finn, reset, and go back to RAW or go back to SmackDown, or go back to things as normal. But it’s kind of evolved into something that I don’t think anyone expected. I think its thanks to how NXT has also evolving and really, truly its own brand now. So, you know, 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 at NXT and there’s no reason for me to want to move anywhere in my career at this point.”

Balor also went on to confirm that he doesn’t expect to return to the main roster anytime soon.

“I feel like I’m still growing and I think that’s one of the best things I’ve done in my career – knowing when to move, knowing when to… something to change. That was the case in Europe, that was the case in Japan, and you know that was the case when I was on RAW and SmackDown. I’m sure I will get to a point where I know that this NXT has run its course and it’ll be time to make a change, but I don’t see that coming anytime soon.”
