Finn Balor Talks Why He Didn’t Hold the Universal Title Up at SummerSlam, Possible WWE Bullet Club Reunion

Former WWE Universal Champion Finn Balor was recently a guest on the Sam Roberts’ Wrestling Podcast. You can check out some highlights from their conversation here:

On why he didn’t lift up the Universal Title at SummerSlam:

“[Zayn] goes, ‘God, that guy’s a genius!’ Yet in reality, when the crowd were saying, I think, ‘that belt sucks,’ I was working over Seth and thought they were saying ‘Bálor sucks,’ and I said, ‘God, they turned on me fast!'”

Bálor continued, “I couldn’t lift it up. And there’s one shot, I don’t know if it aired on TV, but right when I got back up on the stage, the cameraman’s right in my face and I he’s saying, ‘raise the belt up, raise the belt up, I need a shot with the belt up,’ I was like, ‘oh, no… ‘ and I was like, ‘argh…’ and hear crunch, crunch, crunch, crunch, crunch, and I got it up. And the doctor has no idea how I’d done that or how I finished the match.”

On a possible Bullet Club reunion in the WWE:

“Obviously, there is that link and that history. And I think that that’s always a possibility. But I’ve kind of got my own things to handle first when I get back. I’m sure someday that will happen, we’ll get a little B.C. revival going on, but right now, right now, I’m just worried about getting healthy, man. I haven’t thought about where I’m going to be. I just want to get back.”
