Who is Finn Balor?

Three years ago, after being part of the New Japan Wrestling Era, Finn Balor was brought to the WWE to the NXT brand. Balor became NXT Champion and held the title for 292 Days, which is the longest reign so far. On July 26, 2016 Finn Balor made his debut on Raw. Three weeks later he defeated Seth Rollins at Summerslam and became the first ever WWE Universal Champion. The next night on Raw, Balor had to relinquish his title; due to a shoulder injury, that he received during his match at Summerslam.

Skysports News Interview

As we all know WWE has been touring in the U.K. and Balor was on Skysports News. During the interview he commented on Kurt Angle’s ring return. He said “he’s still got it”; and it was great to see him back in the ring. Balor even talked about Tottenham’s season. Which is a soccer team in England. They call it football. However the there is one topic that came up in the interview.

Balor said: “Brock Lesnar is the current WWE Universal Champion, and I was never defeated, so I’m just throwing it out there”. For all you fans that know Balor that’s his way of challenging somebody. There you have it Folks! He threw a challenge out to Brock Lesnar.

Writer’s Thoughts

I’m a huge Finn Balor fan. It made my day when he became the first ever Universal Champion. I hope it’s soon that he will be able to regain that title again, and be able to run with it longer. I believe it will happen soon enough, and when it does happen Brock Lesnar won’t know what hit him! When do you think Balor will get his rematch? Do you think Lesnar will except the challenge? What’s Finn Balor’s future? Comment below and let us know what you think!!
