Finn Balor shocked the world back at WrestleMania 34 when he made his way to the ring wearing LGBTQ colours and seemingly sent a statement to the community.
Balor has since become an icon of the LGBTQ community and has continued to show his support on Social Media while also often donning the colors of their official flag whenever able to.
The former Universal Champion reportedly worked really hard to be given the chance to represent such a wide range of fans in the WWE Universe because WWE reportedly turned down his idea a number of times.
Balor recently spoke to Inside The Ropes where he revealed that Stephanie McMahon was the one who pushed the idea forward since many officials shot down Balor’s plans many times.
“That was something I honestly believed in for a very long time and I had pitched, and pitched, and pitched to a lot of different departments in WWE and it had been shot down, and shot down, and shot down, and it wasn’t until Stephanie [McMahon] got wind of the idea that it all started to fall in to place. It’s easier for a message to come down the line of command than it is to go up the line of command,” he said via Ringsidenews.
Balor has made a lot of progress in WWE over the past few months and is now set to walk into a Universal Championship match against Brock Lesnar at the Royal Rumble after Vince McMahon refused to stage the exact same match at last year’s show.
Interestingly, Balor is expected to bring back The Demon for the biggest match of his career, but is still considered to be the underdog.
