Welcome back maybe? WWE has a lot of talented wrestlers on its roster and that can create a bit of a problem. While it is great to have that many wrestlers available, the company also has to spread them out over three different major weekly shows. Sometimes those wrestlers are going to stick with one show, but you do get occasional movement. WWE might be interested in such a change.
According to the WrestleVotes Twitter account, the Monday Night Raw creative team has wanted Finn Balor to return from NXT for months. This comes during the same week as Balor mentioned wanting to move back up to the main roster in an interview with Ryan Satin. Earlier this week, Balor was defeated by Karrion Kross in an NXT Title match. There is no word on if WWE is planning on making such a move.
Balor returned to NXT in October 2019 during the show’s initial move to the USA Network. Since then he has won the NXT Title for a second time, during which he set a record for the most combined days as NXT Champion. Balor is also a former Universal and Intercontinental Champion on the main roster, having wrestled there from July 2016 until October 2019.
Regarding Finn Balor: I’m told members of the RAW creative team have asked for him for months now. No edict has come down from the top yet yanking him from Orlando. The NXT crew adores Balor so unless the main roster has major plans for him, I’d think he’s OK where he is.

Balor has been a force in WWE. Check out his time on the main roster and in NXT:
Opinion: I wasn’t sure how much time Balor was going to have left in NXT as there was no reason for him to stick around. He is a two time NXT Champion and one of the biggest legends NXT has ever seen. Why let him stick around there when he could instantly be a main event star on the main roster? Balor’s return to NXT was great, but he has nothing left to prove there so let him move back up where he belongs.
What is next for Balor? Where should he go? Let us know in the comments below.
