Finn Balor Wants Rematch With Roman Reigns For The Title
WWE organized a match between the duo at the Extreme Rules pay per view event of 2021, this event was considered as one of the worst events of last year. The world title match might have been the main event of the night but it was easily predictable. It was also the first defeat of Balor under his demon persona.
After this defeat, he never got a rematch for the title, even though it was not a clean win by Roman Reigns. Right now Balor is being pushed in a very good way after becoming the leader of the Judgement Day. He has earned some use victories over the likes of WWE legends Rey Mysterio and Edge. He can definitely be a worthy competitor for Roman Reigns this time.
Finn Balor who is also a former two times WWE NXT champion recently spoke to Josh Martinez where he remembered his match against Roman Reigns that took place at last years Extreme Rules pay per view event. He said that he deserved a rematch. He 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,” continued Balor.
“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.”
