Finn Balor – “I Don’t Think You Can Teach People Wrestling”

SmackDown Finn Balor

Finn Balor has given his reasons as to why we’re not likely to see him training the next generation of wrestlers when he hangs up his boots.

Balor is the reigning NXT Champion and he defends that title on Night 2 of NXT TakeOver: Stand And Deliver against Karrion Kross. The black and gold brand is also where the future superstars of WWE learn and hone their craft. Under the tutelage of Matt Bloom, Shawn Michaels, Robbie Brookside, and countless others, stars have been made in the Performance Center in Orlando.

Finn Balor is unlikely to be amongst that group of coaches anytime soon. Speaking on the What’s The Story? podcast, Balor explained why to him wrestling isn’t something that can be taught.

Balor elaborated:

“I’ve had arguments with people about wrestling training. I don’t think you can teach people wrestling. They’ve kind of asked me would I be interested in being a coach after I’m done wrestling and I told them, ‘You don’t want me coaching people because one day I’m going to tell them everything is sh*t. The next day I’m going to tell them everything is great. One day I’ll say hit them with the right hand, the next day hit them with the left.'”

“I don’t know what’s good and what’s bad. It doesn’t really matter, do what you want. Some people will love it, some people will hate it. You’ve just got to try stuff. It’s not like you train, you’re the best, and you win. There are too many factors that you can’t put your finger on and you can’t learn or train. Just keep doing, whatever you’re doing, over and over until it works. You don’t need me or anyone to teach you that. Just keep doing it and figure it out yourself.”

Former WWE Raw and SmackDown Women’s Champion Becky Lynch has credited Balor with helping train her early in her career.

NXT TakeOver: Stand And Deliver airs on the 7th and 8th of April on Peacock in the US and elsewhere globally on the WWE Network.
