Finn Balor on a main roster call up, being the next potential Paul Heyman guy and more
In a recent promotion of the upcoming NXT Takeover Brooklyn event on 22nd August, NXT Champion Finn Balor in a podcast shared his view on a recent incident, possibly working with Paul Heyman guy and more. Below are excerpts from the conversation.
His thoughts on his head hitting the ceiling panel during an NXT live event
Finn has been apparently seeing stars after that incident and thinks they were actual stars after hitting his head on a ceiling panel, which he noticed was quite low when he entered the arena and made sure he was careful in performing his moves.
“But of course in the heat of the moment, that’s the last thing I’m thinking about when I’m looking below on Solomon Crowe laying on the mat. So I jumped up, I was lucky it was a drop ceiling—it wasn’t solid and I kind of popped through it—a little bit of dust went in my hair, I came crashing down. I think it looked a lot worse than it was, no one was hurt seriously and we all lived to fight another day.” says Balor who finds himself very lucky getting off the hook unhurt.
On the recent tease of being the next Paul Heyman guy
“I’m a big admirer of Paul, and I’ve had a lot of conversations with Paul about what we could do potentially in the future, but it’s all hypothetical at the moment. That was some incredible, incredible fan art that I’m very fortunate that people send me all the time and I like to publicize some of their work and that’s literally all that was.” says Finn.
He further went on to apologize and stated that everyone take posts in their own way. He added that as both NXT Takeover and SummerSlam are in Brooklyn and also the following RAW, you never know what might happen, keeping the door open for a possible appearance.
Why he doesn’t want to go on to the main roster
Finn believes that what is happening at NXT at the moment is groundbreaking and a renaissance in wrestling which he wants to be a part of off and not the main roster at the moment. By comparing the building of NXT to ECW, he says, “I believe that we at NXT are building something together that is going to be looked back on in 10 years the same way that we looked back on the ECW period as being revolutionary at that time, and this is something that I want to be involved in.”
In the podcast, Balor opened up about his match with Owens, a possible bullet club stable in NXT and the late “Rowdy” Rowdy Piper. Check out the full appearance below:
