In New Japan, he was a former IWGP Junior Heavyweight Champion and wrestled against some big stars, like Hiroshi Tanahashi, in heavyweight bouts.
He received a big pay rise when he moved to the WWE in 2014, being one of the top stars on the NXT brand for a number of years.

Did He Date Becky Lynch?
Despite popular opinion, Finn Balor did not date Becky Lynch.
However, they have been friends for a number of years. Balor trained Lynch when she first became a wrestler, when Balor opened one of the first schools in Ireland.
During an interview with the Times Now, Lynch spoke about her start in professional wrestling, which was with Finn Balor in his wrestling school.
“My brother and I would watch wrestling all the time and I loved it. But if you wanted to be a wrestler, you’d have to go off to England or America to train.
It was only at Finn Balor’s school that I got the opportunity to learn. We wrestled for three months on just six blue mats on the floor in this tiny little hall at Saint Andrew’s national school.
We’d go down there every Sunday and that’s how we learned, on the mats. We’d go across to England and do these summer camps where you’d train eight or nine hours a day in a gym.”
