World Wrestling Entertainment (WWE) star Finn Balor believes there are many similarities between the cultures of Ireland (his homeland) and India. And that’s what makes the country special in his heart, which also appreciates WWE’s flourishing fandom in India.
“I love India. I think I was in India for a short trip in 2018, and I think we were on the ground for 12 hours. The energy in New Delhi was amazing. I love Indian food , anything spicy is fine with me, ”Balor tells us in an exclusive interview.
The 40-year-old continues: “We have a few great Indian guys in their performance center who I have spoken to on a number of occasions. I feel like there are a lot of similarities in Irish culture and Indian culture on how we value our families. I can’t wait to return to the country soon.
When it comes to WWE fans in India, Balor calls them “exceptional”. He explains, “They are fantastic. They’re very loud on Twitter and Instagram with their support, and that’s why I’m excited to be returning to India when we can. “
For now, Balor is set to return with his alter-ego, The Demon, after two years of fighting with Universal Champion Roman Reigns to reclaim the title on September 26 at WWE Extreme Rules, which will air on Sony Ten.
“I have a long history with the universal championship. I’m always asked a question, even five years later, about what would have happened in 2016 if Finn hadn’t been injured. This puts a tremendous amount on and so throughout my career. I want to end this chapter with this match and become the universal champion, ”he said, stressing that he does not think about his past.
Opening his approach, the former NXT superstar shares, “I try not to look back and look forward. Obviously, there will be a time in my life when I can’t do that anymore. At this point I’m sure this is where I’ll take stock of what I’ve done and what I’ve accomplished, but right now I’m trying not to look back, I’m trying to look forward. And I feel like I have a lot to look forward to.
From John Cena to Dwayne Johnson to Dave Bautista, WWE Champions have great careers in Hollywood. Is this something you would like to explore? He laughs while pointing out that Hollywood is not on the horizon anytime soon.
“It’s something I haven’t thought about. Right now I’m fully invested in WWE and getting the Universal Championship. And what will come after that will be another story, so we’ll see, “he concludes.
