Bálor traveled to Enfield to visit Tottenham’s state-of-the-art training complex, Hotspur Way, and view the world-class equipment, chat with some of the club's world-class footballers such as England international Kyle Walker, and even take over duties at the front desk.
“Being a Spurs fan, it was awesome to pay the team a visit at their training ground, and see how they prepare for those tough games in the Premier League,” said the NXT Champion. “It was really impressive, and I enjoyed being able to trade training stories and ideas with Kyle Walker.”
Bálor and the club also exchanged a few gifts; the Spurs presented a personalized training shirt to the NXT Champion, who returned the favor by making Walker a full-time member of the Bálor Club.
"All I really want now is to set up Astroturf and a goal at the WWE Performance Center, so we can get some games going,” Bálor joked. “With Hugo Knox being a former professional goalkeeper, maybe we could put an NXT team into a Florida league. You never know."
You like wrestling AND lego??! I bet you have to fight the pussy off with a stick.Cena isn't a fan. That was a media stunt to promote the 2008 Royal Rumble event. Had that game been at Arsenal he'd be holding a Gooner shirt.
Finn, on the other hand, is an amazing talent and an actual fan. Remember him tweeting on the Capital One Cup final day. Already was a part of the 'Balor Club' but this just reaffirms it.
Oh and he also builds lego.
Also highly recommend the 'Smack Em Up' documentary on his last tour of Japan before moving to WWE and NXT. It's available on the BBC iPlayer.
