Finn Balor is NXT Champion, but he still has a lot to prove in WWE if you ask him. He wrestled for years prior to making it to WWE, but he still feels like an up-and-comer when he steps in Vince McMahon’s ring.
While speaking to After The Bell, Finn Balor said that despite all of the experience he had coming into WWE, he still feels like a rookie. This gives him even more fire to continue proving himself.
“I don’t feel in any way that I’m a ‘vet’ in a sense. I know I’ve been around a little while in terms of the business, but with regards to WWE, I feel like I’m a rookie, like an up-and-comer. I still feel like I have a lot to prove. I need to prove that every night against every different talent in the ring.”
“You know I’ve proved it against Roman, and I proved it against Seth, and I proved it against Lashley, and you know, I wanna prove it against all the talent, whether it’s on RAW, SmackDown, NXT.”
“I thrive on that challenge and I want to push myself, now, to the limits while I can. You know, because I’m sure, in a couple of years, the speed that I’m moving at will have to slow down a little bit.”
“So if I can get as much of those matches under my belt right now, and learn from that and grow from that, that’s what I want to do.”
Balor was moved from the main roster back to NXT where he continues carrying the black and gold brand’s flag. Hopefully, he will start to feel like a veteran soon enough, because he deserves it, but his current mindset seems to be working just fine for him right now.
Finn Balor isn’t stopping, and he also realizes that success in this business means that you must always prove yourself. We’ll have to see when Balor slows down, but he shows no signs of imminently doing so.
