Former World Champion Shares Details On New WWE Contract

Roman Reigns pins Finn Balor at WWE Extreme Rules

A top WWE star is going nowhere.

2024 has been a huge contract year in WWE with the likes of Drew McIntyre, Seth Rollins, Chad Gable, and Damian Priest all signing big-money new deals.

Meanwhile, Becky Lynch has sparked an incredible amount of speculation by allowing her contract to expire, and as a result, she’s been a free agent since June 1st.

Back in April, Finn Balor declared he “Ain’t going anywhere!” seemingly in a not-so-subtle hint he’d signed a new contract of his own. This was followed by a report that a “long-term” extension had been agreed.

Finn Balor Staying With WWE For Five More Years

During an appearance on the What’s The Story? podcast, Balor revealed he’s staying with WWE for at least another five years. The former World Champion admitted it was a “weird time” before he re-signed, and he was wondering whether it might be time to move on.

“Yeah, another extension for five years. I’m super excited. You never know. I remember when I was 20 and I was like, ‘If I make it to 30 I’ll be doing well.’ Then, you’re in your 40s and I’m like, ‘Sh*t, do they want me to keep doing this? Am I able to keep doing it? How is the body going to feel?’ We sat down, had a couple of conversations and the feelings were mutual. I wanted to stay, they wanted me to stay. We hashed it out and I couldn’t be happier.

It was a weird time. It was six months to when my contract was coming up. ‘Sh*t, is the end of my run? Is it time to move on?’ Ten years is incredible. I lasted for six years in England and I thought, ‘Whatever I do, England is always going to be the biggest chapter of my career.’ Then I went to Japan for eight years. ‘You lasted eight years in Japan. That’s definitely going to be the main chunk of my career.’

Then, I was just going to WWE to see what happens, maybe last two or three years and go back to Ireland or Japan. Now, I’m ten years in with another five years to go, fingers crossed they don’t fire me. It’s a pretty wild journey.”

Finn Balor signed with WWE in May 2014 after a title-laden run in NJPW where he also founded the Bullet Club.
