WWE.com recently conducted a interview with Finn Balor discussing his move to Raw. He was asked, which WWE star he is most looking forward to wrestling. Below is his response:
“You know, you’re gonna think I’m making this up. But for the longest time, there has been a kind of mutual respect/competitiveness between myself and Seth [Rollins], I think. We’d done a panel the morning of [NXT TakeOver: Brooklyn], and it was something we touched on that when I was in Japan and Seth was in the independents in the United States, we’d always hear each other mentioned in the same breath, and it was like, ‘Who’s better?’ We’d never really had a chance to challenge each other one-on-one, but it was something that was always very much in the back of our minds.
“We both take a lot of pride in our work and are very competitive, and of course we both want to prove to each other that I’m better than him or he’s better than me. But he’s someone I’ve looked up to for a long time in WWE. He’s definitely the number one person I’m looking forward to wrestling, and it just so happens to be at SummerSlam.”
