Finn Balor shares his thoughts on Bullet Club, and why he wants all wrestling companies to work together.
Speaking with Bleacher Report, the NXT Champion alluded to the current synergy between AEW, New Japan Pro Wrestling, and IMPACT, and how it is something he has wanted to see for years. According to Finn, he'd like to see this practise adopted by all promotions worldwide.
"I know there's a lot of cross-brand work going on, which is something I've been an advocate for for years. I don't feel like we should be limited to what our contract says or what company we work for. I feel like wrestling, on the whole, can be better if we all worked together, so if that means me going to Japan or me going to Europe or me going to Mexico, I'm down to do that.
I'm all for the open-border policy, not just between countries but companies as well.”
Balor also commented on Bullet Club, which he helped found almost eight years ago, and how it has grown and transitioned.
"I think it's something that's really stood the test of time, and it's a credit to not only the original generation of myself, Gallows, Anderson, Tama [Tonga] and [Bad Luck] Fale but also the guys who came in after us whether it was Adam Cole, Kenny Omega and AJ [Styles].
It's something I feel that's grown and transitioned, and people have gotten attached to it and bonded to it. It's something that's developed over the years in different forms. It's really cool to see how it's going right now."
AEW and IMPACT have been crossing-over ever since Don Callis helped Kenny Omega win the AEW World Championship from Jon Moxley. Over the past two months, The Good Brothers (Doc Gallows and Karl Anderson) have been appearing regularly on Dynamite, while Omega, Matt Hardy, and Private Party have shown up on IMPACT.
New Japan Pro Wrestling has entered the fray now, too. After Jon Moxley's surprise attack on KENTA at NJPW Strong, the Bullet Club member returned the favor by jumping Moxley at the end of February 3rd's Dynamite. The two will face off for the IWGP US Title on February 26 at NJPW New Beginning USA.
Furthermore, at the end of IMPACT No Surrender it was announced that David Finlay and Juice Robinson would be appearing in the IMPACT Zone on Tuesday, February 16.
Finn Balor is set to defend his NXT Championship against Pete Dunne at NXT TakeOver: Vengeance Day. Fightful will be providing live coverage of the event.
