Finn Balor: Former WWE writer makes HUGE disparaging claim about his stardom

Last updated

In the world of professional wrestling, few names have been as polarizing as Finn Balor. The Irish-born wrestler has been a staple of the WWE for years, but his stardom has recently been called into question.

Vince Russo, a former WWE writer, has made a significant claim about Balor’s place in the wrestling world.

According to Russo, Balor’s true home isn’t on the main stage of WWE, but rather in its developmental territory, NXT.

Finn Balor: The NXT Proposition

Russo’s argument is centred around the idea that Balor, despite his undeniable talent, lacks the ability to draw a large audience.

This claim was made on the wrestling talk show WrestleBinge, where Russo stated, “Bro, can we just be totally honest here? Finn should be in NXT. Bro, he’s not gonna draw three people in WWE. Come on, it is what it is.”

Balor’s Current Alignment

Balor has been a part of the faction known as The Judgment Day for over a year now, alongside Women’s World Champion Rhea Ripley, Mr MITB Damian Priest, and North American Champion Dominik Mysterio.

Russo’s assertion implies that Balor’s presence in this faction is misplaced and that his talents would be better utilized in NXT.

The Judgment Day is expected to have a more significant presence in NXT moving forward, particularly after Mysterio’s recent championship win over Wes Lee.

If Russo’s claim holds any weight, Balor’s move to NXT could potentially bolster the faction’s presence in the developmental territory.
