Balor made his return on Wednesday’s episode of WWE NXT in Winter Park, Florida at Full Sail University on the USA Network where he walked out to the ring and had a staredown with NXT Champion Adam Cole.
In this interview, he talked about how he will be in NXT full-time going forward.
“Right now that’s what it means. I’m going to wrestle whenever, whoever I want,” Bálor said. “That’s something I’ve been chasing for quite some time in my career. I don’t believe in any boundaries be it weight class, country, promotion… And I want to break those boundaries. I’m here at NXT to do that.”
Balor brought up how he felt nervous about the increased talent level in NXT since he was there.
I have to be honest, it’s a little nerve-wracking. The game has changed a lot in NXT since I was here,” Bálor said. “Seeing the match Cole and Matt Riddle put on tonight, they are two of the absolute best in-ring competitors in the world. So it’s a little nerve-wracking to get into the deep end with those guys. It’s gotta be a challenge for myself in and out of the ring, and personally, to see if i can still go. It’s been awhile since I’ve been here, and the NXT style has evolved incredibly. When I was here it was me and [Samoa] Joe, and back then, I don’t want to say it was a slower pace, but it was definitely more rugged here and there. They are going fast, and it’s going to be a test for me and I’m looking forward to it.”
