Finn Bálor makes his long-awaited return to WWE

Finn Bálor speaks about his injury hell and how Neville has...

Then the Universal Champion, Balor suffered a devastating shoulder injury at SummerSlam back in August in his match against Seth Rollins and was forced to relinquish the strap.

 

Speaking at the o2 in London last week to announce the new WWE United Kingdom belt, Balor said: “Myself and Neville have been friends since 2002 and had similar journeys so it has not just been injuries that have encouraged us to lean on each other.

 

“It’s been the adjusting to dojos in Japan or upping sticks and moving to America, the adjustment of working for WWE. So me and Neville have leaned on each other for everything over the last couple of years.

 

“It was unfortunate what happened to both of us but I try to look at the positive situations from everything and for me timing was bad but I have the chance to step back and assess where I am and maybe come back a little bit rejuvenated.

 

“This is the first bit of time off I have had in about 10 years so to have this unfortunate break – which I wish didn’t happen – you have to make a positive out of a negative and I have learnt a lot of the last couple of months.

 

“I think being able to not worry about everything around me has helped. If I cannot affect a situation I take myself out of it.

 

“I don’t pay much attention to the news or what’s happening in politics and I applied that to wrestling because it is not important to me right now. What is important to me is getting my shoulder 100 percent right. So I took myself out of the WWE performance centre and took myself down to Birmingham, Alabama where they are one of the leading specialists in shoulder rehabilitation and working seven hours a day down there to try to make it back for WrestleMania.

 

“It’s nice to have a little break, I have been doing this for 14 years. You learn a lot more about yourself and I’m excited about the new Finn Balor that is coming back and not worried about the one I left behind. The target was six months and to be back for WrestleMania.”

Finn Balor On Why WWE Star Thought He Didn’t Hold Up B...

Recently on Sam Roberts’ Wrestling Podcast, the inaugural WWE Universal Champion Finn Bálor discussed why he did not raise the championship when he defeated Seth Rollins at SummerSlam 2016 and whether reuniting with Luke Gallows and Carl Anderson is being considered for Bálor’s return to WWE.

According to Bálor, the reason he did not hoist his newly won WWE Universal Championship was because his shoulder was injured during the match, even though Sami Zayn thought ‘The Demon King’ did not hold up the title because the fans in attendance were extremely vocal in their displeasure over the red and gold strap.
[Zayn] goes, ‘God, that guy’s a genius!‘ Yet in reality, when the crowd were saying, I think, ‘that belt sucks,’ I was working over Seth and thought they were saying ‘Bálor sucks,’ and I said, ‘God, they turned on me fast!’

Bálor continued, “I couldn’t lift it up. And there’s one shot, I don’t know if it aired on TV, but right when I got back up on the stage, the cameraman’s right in my face and he’s saying, ‘raise the belt up, raise the belt up, I need a shot with the belt up,’ I was like, ‘oh, no… ‘ and I was like, ‘argh…’ and hear crunch, crunch, crunch, crunch, crunch, and I got it up. And the doctor has no idea how I’d done that or how I finished the match.

Additionally, Bálor stated that he is sure a Bullet Club reunion with Gallows and Anderson will happen eventually; however, it does not appear to be planned for his WWE return.

Obviously, there is that link and that history. And I think that that’s always a possibility. But I’ve kind of got my own things to handle first when I get back. I’m sure someday that will happen, we’ll get a little B.C. revival going on, but right now, right now, I’m just worried about getting healthy, man. I haven’t thought about where I’m going to be. I just want to get back.
