The right impression. While he might not be everyone’s favorite and while he might not be around anymore, there is no one in the history of wrestling as powerful as Vince McMahon. As owner of WWE, McMahon was able to change almost anything he wanted in the company, including which stars received a push. It seems that someone was able to impress McMahon right before he left.

During an appearance on the Cheap Heat podcast, WWE’s Finn Balor revealed that McMahon was impressed with his heel work as part of the Judgment Day stable. McMahon reportedly did not think that Balor had that kind of performance in him, which Balor said was nice to hear. Balor went on to say that while he had spent more time working with Triple H, McMahon had always been great to him.

Opinion: There is something to be said about impressing McMahon, as he is the ultimate force in wrestling and someone who is always worth listening to. Balor has done well in the role that he has been in and plays a great villain when given the chance. I’m not sure why it took WWE so long to go that route, but at least we are getting to enjoy some of him in this way after quite the wait.

What do you think of Balor’s current work? What would you like to see him do in WWE? Let us know in the comments below.
