March 11th, 2011 was a horrible time for the world. Japan was hit by a massive 9.0 magnitude earthquake that rocked the country and left millions in peril. The hardest quake to ever hit Japan marked the 4th heaviest in recorded world history and it not only triggered huge tsunami waves but also took the lives of 15,894 people injuring thousands more with around 2,500 people left missing.
Even though Finn Balor left Japan behind in a number of ways he will always have a very special place in his heart for the incredible Japanese people and their culture.
Finn Balor recently sent a message out to his fans in Japan in their native language where he spoke from the heart to the great island nation.
Translated from Japanese Balor’s message says, “I haven’t forgotten about the 11th of March seven years ago, even now! For me, Japan is a special country. There will always be Japan in my heart. I hope that the reconstruction will continue in the future. Thank you for your support from Japan always!”
As Finn Balor’s career continues to grow in WWE and he looks forward to possibly his first WrestleMania Moment he will never forget the people who helped him get there including the fans who cheered him on when he was known as Prince Devitt.
