Finn Balor revealed in an interview with Bleacher Report that Randy Orton is one star several people in the NXT locker room look up to. He also expressed his desire to have Orton in NXT.
“I don’t know if this is someone who would learn from it, but someone I’d love to have in NXT is Randy Orton, because I feel like he’s probably the best performer of the last 10 years,” said Balor. “He’s someone I look up to a lot and I know a lot of the NXT locker room looks up to a lot. He’s someone I feel would have a huge impact on NXT that would start a ripple effect for the next five or 10 years. I’ve been in the ring with Randy before, but if we could do that in an NXT environment, I would love that.”
In the same interview, Balor was asked about his demon character. He talked about the character taking a lot out of him. He also explained it limits what he can do and he is focused on the work he has done as The Prince for the last 11 months. At this point, he feels like The Demon would be a step backward.
However, Balor would like to do The Demon vs. The Fiend down the line. You can read the entire interview at this link.
