In a long interview with Times Now News.com, the Irish superstar commented on actually learning to wrestle: “My brother and I would watch wrestling all the time and I loved it. But if you wanted to be a wrestler, you’d have to go off to England or America to train.
It was only at Finn Balor’s school that I got the opportunity to learn. We wrestled for three months on just six blue mats on the floor in this tiny little hall at Saint Andrew’s national school. We’d go down there every Sunday and that’s how we learned, on the mats.
We’d go across to England and do these summer camps where you’d train eight or nine hours a day in a gym”.
