Finn Balor Talks The Night He Had To Relinquish The WWE Universal Title Due To Injury

Top WWE Superstar Finn Balor recently spoke with BT Sport on a variety of topics such as the night he had to relinquish the WWE Universal Title due to an injury after winning it just one night earlier at the 2016 WWE SummerSlam Event as well as how he had no idea that WWE Hall of Famer Mick Foley will be lifting his arm and that Stephanie McMahon was going to be in the ring.

Finn Balor said:

“I don’t really have much memory from this at all (night I relinquished the WWE Universal Title) and there wasn’t any planning that went into it. Obviously, I had a couple lines I wanted to get out but, I even remember Mick Foley lifting my arm and I’m thinking, oh, that’s weird. We haven’t even spoken about this or anything and I didn’t know Stephanie [McMahon] was gonna be in the ring, like when I went out there, Stephanie was in the ring.”

Finn Balor also spoke about how the entire day was such a blur.

Finn Balor said:

“But, this day was such a blur because I went from the night before at SummerSlam, straight from the hotel and we had to get up at 6 AM to go and do media so I hadn’t really slept because of the adrenaline and the media and everything so at 6 AM, went in to do media, Good Morning America and from there, we went straight to the hospital and straight from the hospital, we went straight to the show so I hadn’t really been to bed since the Saturday night so, that was kind of a blur.”
