Finn Balor recently spoke with BT Sport for an in-depth interview covering all things pro wrestling.
During the discussion, “The Demon King” spoke about taking time off to travel to Ireland fix Visa issues, as well as how that was the reason why he missed the WWE Royal Rumble and other WWE shows.
Featured below are some of the highlights from the interview where he touches on these topics with his thoughts.
On having to take time off to go to Ireland and fix his Visa issues: “I didn’t want to take any time off. I didn’t want to miss any shows. I didn’t need any time off. I wasn’t injured. I didn’t need a rest. Legally, my Visa needed to be renewed and I needed to go home to Ireland and go to the US Embassy to get a new Visa.
On that being the reason he missed the WWE Royal Rumble pay-per-view: “And that’s why I wasn’t at the Royal Rumble and that’s why I wasn’t there for a month. Everyone’s asking questions, ‘Finn’s not here, Finn’s not there.’ It was strictly a legal paperwork issue that had to be rectified. It had kind of been pushed and pushed, and pushed on through COVID because we couldn’t travel, and it was… a window opened up and we said, ‘Look, we are going to have to do it eventually, let’s just do it now.”
On his Visa now being good to go for the next ten years: “The time off was taken reluctantly in January to take care of that paperwork but thank God it’s all taken care of now for the next ten years.”
