Finn Balor vs. Brock Lesnar; Kofi reaches milestone Submitted by Aaron Rift on 09/25/2018 at 11:36 AM
- In a recent interview with Inside The Ropes, Finn Balor was asked about a possible match with Brock Lesnar in WWE:
ďWell, I donít make that decision. Iím just very low on the totem pole with regards to who makes the matches. But obviously, I would love that Brock Lesnar match more than anyone. I think itís the classic David vs. Goliath match. I donít think itís very much like a match Iíve had beforeÖor he has had before, maybe? You know, someone who had a very brief crossing of the paths with in New Japan. When I was in Japan as a young boy, he was in Japan as a Champion. He was the New Japan Champion. And do you know what he did? He walked out on the company and destroyed the reputation of the title belt. Heís kinda doing the same thing again now. Honestly, when Brockís music hits, everyone pays attention. Despite all this talk about Ďheís not there every week,í Ďheís not the best.í I know that when his music hits and he walks out, Iím invested and Iím intrigued to see what is gonna happen. There is certainly an aura that Brock carries that nobody else carries. Thatís the title aura that I want to be in the ring with and I wanna feel and experience it].Ē
ďWhen I first came up [through] the WWE, we had- I wrestled Roman, obviously on RAW. Beat him on my first night, no big deal. But a couple weeks later we did it at the No Mercy PPV, was it? No, the Extreme Rules PPV. It was a five-way. It was like me, Samoa Joe, somebody else, somebody else- and Roman. Everyone came to the ring and then Romanís music hit and Iím not kidding, it was the most insane reaction Iíve ever experienced in my life. That type of reaction is the type of thing that I want to be involved in. That feeling that Brock gives you when he walks to the ring, and that aura that Roman has when he walks to the ring. They are the type of moments that this business is built on.Ē
