Finn Balor’s push towards the NXT main event picture comes because WWE officials are very high up on him. Not only is Triple H firmly behind the former Prince Devitt, but he has the support of Vince McMahon as well as Vince is a big fan.
There’s some concern within WWE over how Balor’s gimmick will translate to the main roster but he does have a lot of momentum.
It’s worth noting that before signing with WWE, Balor wanted, and was given, assurances that he wouldn’t have to work a lengthy stint in developmental. Balor wants to be on WWE’s main roster and is expected to be brought up sooner than most talents are.
