Finn Balor recently revealed his respect level for Drew McIntyre to Sam Roberts. Check out his comments below.
TLC Match Against The Scotish Phycopath:
“The idea is never to steal the show, it is to go out there and have a good time,” Balor said to Sam Roberts. “I am still trying to process the fact that I have a match against Drew McIntyre at TLC because I just found out through social media. It’s crazy because we kind of come from the same general area on planet earth and we have had similar career paths, but we have never had a singles match on TV. We never really crossed paths in the indies. We were at the same place at the same time, but never worked together, so this is kind of a first time we are getting to step into the ring against each other. I am sure he has a lot of stuff he wants to prove to me and a lot of stuff I want to prove to him, and there’s a lot of stuff that I want to prove to everybody that is going to be watching, so I am looking forward to it. It is good to be in the mix in that spot and I definitely won’t be taking it for granted and will be pulling all of the stops.”
On His Respect For Drew McIntyre:
“Credit to Drew McIntyre to go through what he went through at an early age in WWE and then regroup, reset his goals, refocus and do it the way he has done it and to come back in so composed and a completely new Drew McIntyre, so credit to him for that,” stated Balor. I have ultimate respect for how he has handled his career. I think he has definitely proved a lot of people wrong in doing that. Jinder Mahal is another example. They are great guides for when this type of thing that does happen for guys in WWE that do get let go, and the door isn’t always closed and there is a light at the end of the tunnel and if guys can get refocused, dig in and work hard there is always a way back for those guys. I have ultimate respect for them.”
