Finn Balor on relationship with Triple H
Over his years on NXT as well as on the main roster, Triple H has been the one person always behind him. Balor revealed that he was uncertain about his career when he first came to WWE more than half a decade ago. But he was fortunate to strike an understanding with The Game early on, which has only grown better ever since.
“Working with him has been absolutely fantastic. I came to WWE about six years ago with a lot of uncertainty. There were expectations, but personally, I was uncertain how it was going to go. I feel like myself and Triple H struck an understanding early on in my career at NXT. It has grown and developed. He is someone I can say I’ve spent in and out of the ring more than anyone else. I trust his direction and take his advice. He’s someone I feel very fortunate to have developed a friendship with the last couple of years.”
Balor believes he has proven himself to Triple H as someone who can be trusted with the yellow-and-black brand name. He hopes to carry forward the legacy of Triple H in WWE NXT by performing at the highest level in the coming years.
“Maybe I’ve proven myself to him as someone he can trust to get something done. We have a good bond. Having gone through what he has in building NXT and the brand, hopefully, I won’t let him down by continuing to build the brand and perform at the highest level.”
Through different eras, a changing brand, and bringing @WWENXT to places it’s never been before … and where it’s going next… @FinnBalor IS #WWENXT.
