Author’s take:

Finn Balor truly is an athletic specimen. Not only does he look the part, but the man is also more than capable of playing the part. Yet another point that most people, quite oddly, seem to overlook in Balor is his excellent cardio.

Finn Balor stays true to the old adage- Laughter is the best medicine. Well, the King has spoken and all you fitness fanatics out there’d better buck up and get your regular dosage of laughter to get that coveted 6-pack or 8-pack if you’re a genetic freak!
