This Sunday, at WWE’s Royal Rumble event, Finn Balor will face off against ‘The Beast Incarnate’ Brock Lesnar. The two will clash for the WWE Universal Championship. Balor was inserted into the matchup after winning a Fatal 4-Way to fill Braun Strowman’s spot. Strowman lost the opportunity thanks to Vince McMahon during last week’s Monday Night Raw.
Balor has already shut down the prospect of the WWE Universe seeing ‘The Demon’ at Royal Rumble. He stated, “[…] I can assure you that the man who faces Brock Lesnar at the Royal Rumble will be Finn Balor, the man.”
In a recent interview with Scott Fishman of TV Insider, Balor reflected on his rise back to the main event, and his hard-earned journey to face Lesnar for the Universal Championship. Finn was also asked whether he thinks Vince McMahon believes in him, and what their working relationship looks like.
“I [have] got to be honest, I’m not sure what my relationship is with Vince McMahon. I’m not sure if he believes in me or not. He can be a man of few words. When I show up to work, I find out what I need to do and go handle my business in the ring,” Balor admitted. “That’s kind of how I’ve handled my career for the last 18 years. I’m not the type of guy who is going to be knocking on doors trying to pitch storylines and work inside angles. I’m just going to show up and do my job. I will say he has shown nothing but respect to me face-to-face, but that is as far as our relationship goes.”
