Finn Balor Wants to Face Brock Lesnar & Conor McGregor


Source: Metro UK

The Demon King aka Finn Balor spoke to Metro Sport about wrestling, including potential future matches with Brock Lesnar and Conor McGregor. Here are the some of the highlights from the interview:


You never lost the Universal Championship after being forced to give it up due to injury. How much of an ambition is it for you to wrestle for it again, especially against current champion Brock Lesnar?

– Listen, I don’t shy away from a fight for one second and I would absolutely love to be in there with Brock Lesnar. I would love to get in there with The Undertaker and Triple H too, these are guys that have been active at the top of the game for the last 20 years. They’re the type of guys I want to be in the ring with. We talk about stepping up and taking things to the next level, and I think that’s what I need to do next. Once I handle Bray Wyatt, I need to be going after the Universal Championship which I was never beaten for. Yes, Brock Lesnar is the current champion, but make sure you don’t forget that I relinquished the title due to injury, I was never beaten, and I definitely think that I deserve a title shot.

From an artistic perspective, how do you think a match with Brock would be?

– For me as a fan growing up I loved David vs Goliath style matches. Right now, there’s a lot of interesting matches that could happen in WWE right now, but for me personally I think that Finn Balor vs Brock Lesnar is the most interesting match from a fans perspective that can happen right now. It’s something that has never happened before, with completely different styles inside and out of the ring. This could be a really big spectacle.

Conor McGregor has been heavily linked with a match at Wrestlemania in the ring. Would you be interested in competing with or against him if he makes the move to professional wrestling?

– That’s the first I’ve heard that he’s been heavily linked to WWE as I try and stay out of the media, but I’m a huge fan of Conor McGregor and have ultimate respect for what he’s done. How he handled himself against Floyd in the boxing ring was a credit not just to himself, but to his country. Whether he’s side by side with me which I’d take great pride in, or across the ring, everyone in WWE would love to have Conor involved at Wrestlemania. I think a team of Finn Balor and Conor McGregor against someone like Triple H and Floyd Mayweather might be an interesting tag-team match!
