WATCH: A fantastic piece with WWE star Finn Bálor’s parents about his rise to the top

Joe Harrington

From growing up in Bray to becoming a WWE Champion, here’s how it happened.

Finn Bálor is a professional wrestler from Bray, county Wicklow and he’s one of the most exciting performers in the WWE.

His career hit an all-time high at SummerSlam last August when he became the first man to win the WWE Universal title.

An amazing night, but it turned bittersweet because Bálor suffered an injury in his title match that’s kept him out of action ever since then.

He’s close to a return and ahead of that the WWE has released a mini-documentary about the Irishman and his rise to the top of the game.

In the brilliant piece, his parents tell personal stories about Bálor’s journey from Ireland to Japan to WWE. Enjoy.
