Finn Balor has two NXT stars that he believes fans should keep an eye on.
The former WWE Universal Champion recently spoke to Mike Jones of DC 101 about this Sunday’s Money In The Bank pay-per-view.
Balor is slated to compete in the Men’s Money In The Bank Ladder Match alongside Braun Strowman, The Miz, Rusev, Kevin Owens, Bobby Roode, and Samoa Joe. In this interview, he was asked about preparing for such a dangerous match.
“I’m gonna have to have eyes in the back of my head because you can’t trust Kevin Owens, you can’t trust Miz, Samoa Joe is just gonna come straight for ya. There’s a lot of tricky fellas in that match and anything could rally happen.
“…I’ve been cleaning the gutters at my house, painting the roof, trying to get as much experience on a ladder as I can. (laughs). You know, there is no way of training… practicing for this. This is all potluck in my opinion. It’s seven other guys in the ring to bring ladders. I’m sure someone will introduce a table and a chair. There’s no rules at all. We’ll see what’s gonna happen.”
Balor had a lot of success in the NXT brand including a run as NXT Champion before being called up to the main roster. When asked which stars fans should keep an eye on, Balor named Velveteen Dream and Adam Cole.
“NXT is something that is very close to my heart, I’ve spent my fondest years there, and something I keep an eye on still. Since I’ve left there, Velveteen Dream is doing amazing. Adam Cole is one to watch as well. He is doing some amazing stuff down there.”
