NXT Champion Finn Balor spoke to Scott Fishmen of Channel Guide Blog.com to promote NXT Takeover: Brooklyn. Here are the highlights.
On having a potential match with The Undertaker:
“That would be a dream match for me to see Finn Bálor versus The Undertaker,” he said.
“It really doesn’t need to be explained more than that. I’ve been very fortunate to talk to Undertaker when I first came in here. We talked about entrances. He gave me a lot of advice that helps me to this day. So I’m very grateful for that. Maybe I’d play a couple of mind games with the Deadman. It would be a little bit fun.”
On being NXT Champion:
“Life hasn’t really changed as far as who I am,” Bálor said.
“You still have to carry yourself day-to-day a certain way, whether you are NXT champion or not. So not much has changed, but the schedule has been hectic. I’ll admit that, but it is part of representing the company and what we are doing at NXT. That’s my responsibility now, and I’m happy to do it.”very grateful for that. Maybe I’d play a couple of mind games with the Deadman. It would be a little bit fun.”
On the NXT locker room:
“I really feel it’s a team effort,” he said.
“That’s the beauty of NXT and why it’s so successful. It’s not a one-man show. There is tons of talent all over the card. Hideo [Itami] got hurt unfortunately. You have Sami Zayn. You have so many up-and-comers in Jason Jordan, Chad Gable. You have Enzo [Amore] and Big Cass doing incredibly well at the moment. You have Scott Dawson and Dash Wilder. There are guys that are great, top-to-bottom all over the card like Tyler Breeze and Baron Corbin as well. We have a huge supporting cast. Don’t be mistaken. Brooklyn is not just me and Kevin. It is NXT. Everyone is going to get the opportunity to see exactly what this brand is all about.”
