BA: I would have liked to have seen him (Finn Balor) come back against an equal weight competitor. Jinder Mahal obviously outweighs him. I think I would have liked to have seen him against another cruiserweight for his comeback.

NH: Would you prefer to see Finn Balor on 205 Live and in the cruiserweight division?

BA: Yes. Actually I think on special occasions he should wrestle on the main roster because he is a great wrestler. He’s an excellent showman. I would rather see him in the cruiserweight mix because he’s such a great aerial artist.
