Finn Balor was recently interviewed on The Gorilla Position podcast and shared his thoughts on Brock Lesnar possibly staying with WWE and his desire to win the Universal title again. Below are the highlights, courtesy of WrestlingInc.
On Winning The Universal Title Again:
“I’d like to, but I don’t know if I need to,” Balor said regarding holding another title. “I don’t need anything. I would like to. It will be interesting to see where the title goes.”
His Opinion on Brock Lesnar:
“When [Lesnar] comes out, it’s a different feel,” Balor said. “Everyone’s like, ‘oh no, what’s gonna happen? We don’t know what’s gonna happen.’ I love it, I love watching Brock. I’d love to get in the ring with Brock. He is an attraction and he’s been an attraction since day one. People tend to forget that, they’re like ‘oh he comes and goes,’ but Brock’s the real deal. He was New Japan champion, people forget that, you know he’s been doing it [in WWE] for years, NCAA — he’s the real deal man… UFC, duh how’d I forget that one? When Brock walks to the ring there’s something special there happening that night. Regardless of if it’s good or bad, people like it or don’t like it they’re all paying attention and that’s what we need — we need more of that in pro wrestling.”
Does He Think Lesnar Will Stay With WWE?:
“I hope so,” Balor continued saying as he wanted to see Lesnar stay in WWE. “You never know. You know everyone said he’s out the door after WrestleMania, last SummerSlam he was going. This SummerSlam he’s going. People just make up stories in their head because it sells newspapers or clickbait or whatever. They just like to talk to hear themselves talk or make themselves feel like they have an opinion, but we’re all just guessing. Because it’s all media hype. Nobody knows until it actually happens… I don’t think [WWE] even knows.”
