NXT Champion Finn Balor remains one of the highlights of the black and gold brand, having competed in excellent matches and feuds during his time in NXT.
Balor recently spoke to Joseph Staszewski of The New York Post to hype his upcoming match at NXT Title match against Pete Dunne at “Takeover: Vengeance Day.” The Prince was asked if he has any interest in defending the title at WrestleMania.
Balor revealed that he would rather defend the title at a TakeOver event as NXT is close to his heart. However, he isn’t against defending it at WrestleMania.
“Ehh, it would be very cool but I feel NXT is something that is very close to my heart and NXT Takeover at WrestleMania weekend is a huge event and a huge kind of flag bearer for NXT,” he said. “And not having the NXT title match on Takeover, if that’s gonna in any way damage the NXT brand, it’s something I’d rather stay away from.
“Once we’re protecting the NXT brand without having it diluted by the big show at WrestleMania it’s something I’d be willing to do. If there’s the possibility of defending the title back to back nights, Takeover and WrestleMania, then I’m all for it.”
