Finn Balor was born in Bray, County Wicklow, Ireland on July 25, 1981. His heroes growing up were Shawn Michaels, Rick Rude and Mr. Perfect.

Finn first became involved in professional wrestling at the age of 18, when he started to train at NWA UK Hammerlock. He would actually debut for the promotion in 2000 and win the NWA British Commonwealth Heavyweight Championship. Upon graduation from the school, Finn became heavily entrenched in the independent wrestling circuit across Ireland, the United Kingdom and the United States.

In addition to working the independent circuit, Finn launched NWA Ireland with Paul Tracey. Over the years, he has helped train a wide variety of well-known wrestlers, particularly World Wrestling Entertainment (WWE) SmackDown Women’s Champion Becky Lynch.

As the years went by, Finn would compete for Millennium Wrestling Federation (MWF), National Wrestling Alliance, New Japan Pro Wrestling (NJPW) and many others. He has also wrestled with the likes of Daniel Bryan, Karl Anderson, Eddie Edwards, Jushin Thunder Liger, Alex Shelley and Chris Sabin. Finn was also one of the founders of the most popular faction in all of pro-wrestling: The Bullet Club, which presently features Kenny Omega, The Young Bucks and several others.

It was in May 2014 that the Internet was abuzz that the WWE had signed Finn. The news was confirmed two months later and he was immediately sent to NXT, the billion-dollar company’s developmental territory. He would make his NXT debut by coming to the aid of Hideo Itami. Finn’s actual debut match took place on October 23. Finn would eventually win the NXT Championship and have countless rivals with the likes of Kevin Owens and Samoa Joe.

Finn would make his WWE main roster debut in July 2016 as he competed for the Raw brand. In his first night, he defeated Rusev, Cesaro, Kevin Owens and Roman Reigns to go on to face Seth Rollins at SummerSlam for the WWE Universal Championship. He would be victorious at SummerSlam, but he had to relinquish the title the night after because of a significant injury that needed surgery. It was announced he would be out for six months.

Outside of pro-wrestling, Finn is an avid football player, holds a first degree black belt and maintains a collection of Lego and comic books. He is a big supporter of Tottenham Hotspur.

We estimate that Finn Balor’s net worth is $1 million (2016).

So how much is $1 million really?

$1 million can buy you front-row tickets to years worth of Monday Night Raws, SmackDown Lives and pay-per-views. $1 million can also buy you a pro-wrestling training school.
