Finn Balor gave insight into his role as a teacher and mentor to younger WWE talent, but it might not be words many would expect to hear coming from the former champion.
Balor said it is harder for rising stars in WWE to break into the company since there are so many talents vying for the same spots. He advised making sure that you never tell a talent manager or executive that you don’t want to work there anymore, because no one wants to deal with the consequences of burning bridges.
Balor offers words of encouragement to his colleagues who want to find another job, “sometimes we get caught up in the bubble that is WWE, and there is a whole world of wrestling outside it,” advises Balor.
Steve Balor has spent close to a decade as an independent entity and is best recognized outside of WWE for his work in New Japan Pro Wrestling. Under the name “Prince Devitt,” he became the leader of NJPW’s greatest faction, “The Bullet Club.” Throughout his tenure with the company, he held numerous Junior Heavyweight Championships and had quality matches with talents such as Kota Ibushi and Hiroshi Tanahashi.
