Despite being labelled as the future of the wrestling business, many tend to forget that Finn Balor has actually been around for quite some time. Despite his young looking, blemish free baby face, Balor has actually been wrestling for quite some time now. Finn made his debut in 2000, at the age of 18. It has already been 15 years of wrestling for WWE’s future star. Balor’s popularity grew while wrestling with “New Japan”. Despite a promising position with New Japan though, Balor decided to make the jump with NXT at the age of 33. His risky move certainly came with a reward, as Balor is the current NXT World Champion, and is billed as the future of the wrestling business despite his age of 34. Quite the story for Balor.
