WWE held it’s most stupendous two night WrestleMania in history in Dallas’ AT&T Stadium back in April, with the show being considered a major success both by the company and the fans.
That being said, one major criticism with the show was that neither midcard championship was featured on the show, with Ricochet defending the Intercontinental Championship against Humberto and Angel in a Triple Threat on SmackDown, and United States Champion Finn Balor featuring in the Andre the Giant Memorial Battle Royal, despite fans expecting a title clash with then-rival now-ally Damian Priest.
Balor spoke about missing the show on the Cheap Heat Podcast, where he admitted that he was ‘deeply hurt’ about missing the event.
“Obviously, it’s something I absolutely want to be involved in. Last year, I wasn’t involved in Mania and I’ll be honest, that deeply hurt. Deeply hurt. The fact that I show up for every TV, every house show, every overseas tour, every media appearance. Then, to be left off two nights of WrestleMania, that hurt. I definitely want to be involved with Clash at the Castle. I only found out about SummerSlam on Monday. There’s no real, ‘Hey, you’re going to be in this match in three months. You’re going to be in this match in six weeks.’ It’s literally, you find out the week before sometimes. Sometimes, you guys find out before I do because you see it on the TV and I’m in the locker room. Absolutely, I want to be involved in whatever way I can. To have a singles match would be incredible. Having spent six years at the start of my career in the United Kingdom, to get to go back and wrestle in a stadium would be incredible.”
Balor took part at SummerSlam, when he and Damian Priest were defeated by the Mysterios thanks to a returning Edge, who attacked the Judgment Day.
