WWE fans can breathe a sigh of relief as Finn Balor, a former Universal Champion and a significant name in the wrestling world, has announced his decision to remain with the company.

Taking to social media on X Monday, Balor expressed gratitude to WWE for an incredible decade, stating, “I would like to take this moment to say thank you to WWE for 10 incredible years. And after much thought and consideration, I have decided that now is the right time to say ‘I ain’t going nowhere!”

Reports from Fightful Select on Monday suggested that Balor’s decision to stay with WWE was anticipated, with sources indicating that he was expected to ink a long-term contract extension with the company, if he hadn’t already. Balor’s existing deal was nearing its end, with just a couple of months left.

Sources revealed that WWE was eager to secure Balor’s services with a multi-year, lucrative offer, recognizing his potential as a valuable asset both in and out of the ring.


“We’re told that WWE was looking to sign Balor to a multi-year, big money offer. It was expected that he would have major interest outside of the company, and that specifically AEW is looking to sign potential free agents this Summer. His name was on their list of talent they were keeping an eye on. “

With the wrestling landscape heating up, particularly with AEW eyeing potential free agents this summer, WWE was keen to prevent Balor from slipping through their fingers. Indeed, his name reportedly featured prominently on AEW’s radar as they scouted talent for potential signings.

Balor’s decision to commit to WWE comes as a significant win for the company, securing the talents of a seasoned performer who has left an indelible mark on the wrestling industry.
