Finn Balor Teases Fans As He Pledges Future To WWE

Finn Balor

For the last ten years, Finn Balor has called WWE home and now he’s pulled a Jordan Belfort because he ain’t leaving.

Ever since AEW popped up in 2019, a new wrestling war emerged with a new place for people to work and make a name for themselves in the wrestling world. Stars have gone back and forth between WWE and AEW with Cody Rhodes, CM Punk, and Jade Cargill making waves when they left Tony Khan’s company for WWE and Adam Cole, Bryan Danielson, and Adam Copeland among those that have found a new challenge in AEW.

Tony Khan has been aggressive in recent months with his recruitment bringing in Kazuchika Okada, Will Ospreay, and Mercedes Mone and while he might be looking for more stars, one WWE name won’t be making the jump.

Finn Balor Staying Put In WWE

Taking to social media, Finn Balor might have had people in the first half as he thanked WWE for 10 years before revealing that he’s not planning on going anywhere:

I would like to take this moment to say thank you to WWE for 10 incredible years. And after much thought and consideration , I have decided that now is the right time to say ‘I ain’t going nowhere!’

Fightful Select gave more insight on Balor’s post noting that it was expected the Irish star would be signing a new long-term contract extension with WWE if he hadn’t already put pen to paper on the deal. Balor’s deal was due to expire in the next couple of months and WWE wanted him to sign a new big money contract.

AEW is believed to be looking at signing even more free agents this summer and Finn Balor is believed to have been one star that the company was keeping an eye on but now it looks like that move won’t transpire. Drew McIntyre, Seth Rollins, and Becky Lynch are other WWE stars whose contracts are believed to be up in the next few months but creative on TV would suggest none of them are jumping ship.

Since joining WWE in 2014 following a successful stint in New Japan Pro Wrestling where he was a founder member of Bullet Club, Finn Balor has had no shortage of success. Balor is a Grand Slam Champion in the company and was the first WWE Universal Champion in history although that reign lasted less than 24 hours due to injury.
