Kyle O'Reilly believes fellow WWE NXT superstar Finn Balor is the best wrestler in the world at the moment.
The debate over who can claim to be the top of the mountain in professional wrestling has raged on social media with names such as Kenny Omega, Randy Orton, Roman Reigns, Kazuchika Okada and AJ Styles all being mooted by fellow professionals and fans.
O'Reilly has endured wars with Balor over the NXT Championship in the past few months and the former Undisputed Era member believes the manner in which the Irishman has elevated the black-and-gold brand puts him at the top of the list.
Speaking with Steve Muehlhausen of DAZN, when asked who the best wrestler in the world is, O'Reilly said: "I think Finn Balor is. He’s a guy who’s done everything. (He’s) a former Universal champion.
"For whatever reason, he came back to NXT and has just helped elevate every single guy that he’s wrestled in NXT. He’s helped elevate the brand of NXT just by him being here, and by him putting everything into his work, delivering, and busting his ass when he certainly didn’t have to.
"I think his work definitely speaks for itself because everything he’s done has just been top-notch. I know myself, I’ve learned a lot getting to wrestle Finn.
“For my money, I’d say Finn Balor is at the top of that list right now."
