Finn Balor on how 2016 SummerSlam injury impacted his career.
“I think that SummerSlam in 2016 is a microcosm of my whole career. I was a kid from a country that had no pro wrestling at all. My whole life I was told, over and over, that I couldn’t even be in the business. Then when I broke in, I was told every reason as to why I couldn’t be successful. Everyone was always putting obstacles in my way. I feel the injury at SummerSlam, which occurred moments into the [19-minute] match, was just another obstacle I needed to overcome. And that’s how I approached it. Adapt, overcome, and move forward.”
“Seven years later, SummerSlam 2023 is not the end of the story. It’s the beginning of a new chapter.”
