Former WWE Universal Champion Finn Balor said he is pretty excited to be in India and would love to learn a little bit of cricket from Virat Kohli.
Finn Balor said he has heard a lot of good things about India and is very excited to visit the country.
He is also hopeful of the right-hander batsman teaching him few tricks and the rules of the game. Hailing from Ireland, a country where cricket is growing rapidly, Balor admits that he has no idea about the game and has never seen much of the sport in the past.
Talking to India Today, Balor said, “I absolutely have no idea about the game, never seen much of cricket. I’ve seen a little bit on TV when Ireland played against Australia. I know Ireland have been doing quite well recently. I’ve been in Japan and America for the last 15 years, so it’s not something I’ve had much of an opportunity to witness.”
“But obviously, I’m proud and would love to see Ireland and India in the future. Yeah! I’d love to meet the captain of the Indian cricket team. I think he is kind of badass and everything. ”
:You know, I’d actually love to play a practice match and if he could show me a few tricks and teach me the laws of the game which I missed out on. I think it would be fun to have a couple of rounds with him.”
WWE will host two live shows in Delhi at the Indira Gandhi Indoor Stadium, New Delhi on December 8 and 9.
Although, this is not the first time WWE is coming to India for a live show, this will be the first time Balor will be a part of the all-star touring party that includes the likes of India’s own and WWE Champion Jinder Mahal, The Shield, Bray Wyatt, Kane, WWE RAW Women’s champion Alexa Bliss and many more.
Balor is likely to face Bray Wyatt on December 8 and will face Curtis Axel on December 9.
Along with Balor, all three members of the SHIELD, Roman Reigns, Seth Rollins and Dean Ambrose, ‘Monster Among Men’ Braun Strowman, Samoa Joe, Bray Wyatt, WWE Raw Tag Team champions Cesaro and Sheamus, WWE Raw Women’s champion Alexa Bliss, Sasha Banks etc. are also scheduled to make an appearance.
