Top WWE RAW Superstar and the inaugural WWE Universal Champion Finn Balor spoke with Josh Martinez on a variety of topics such as how he wants to face Undisputed WWE Universal Champion Roman Reigns again following the controversial ending to their title match at last year’s WWE Extreme Rules Event due to the return of Brock Lesnar.
Finn Balor said:
“I feel like it’s just been left open-ended [finish to Balor versus Reigns at Extreme Rules 2021] and the finish hasn’t been addressed and there was an idea to go a different direction, but then Brock [Lesnar] returned and the direction changed so, that’s something you kind of have to come to terms with and understand in WWE. There’s always gonna be a — if one piece of the jigsaw changes, the whole landscape changes and if someone gets hurt or someone returns, there’s always gonna be different ideas and plans put in place. So you just gotta be able to adapt to the ever-evolving situation and that’s what we had to do but, I feel like the finish of that match has definitely caused some watercooler talk so to speak and the fact that we’re still talking about it a year later is evidence of that and I feel like, you know, perhaps the next couple of months, we should really revisit that and address what happened that night.”
Finn Balor also spoke about how Chris Jericho is not only a legend in AEW, WWE or Japanese wrestling, but he is also a legend of the entire pro wrestling business.
Finn Balor said:
“Chris Jericho is not only an AEW legend, he’s not only a WWE legend or a Japanese wrestling legend, he’s a legend of this business, he’s an incredible performer. He’s been able to adapt and change his character to suit multiple generations and I feel like he is a treasure of this industry.”
