First-ever WWE Universal Champion Finn Bálor hasn’t necessarily had the best time of it of late, losing the Intercontinental Championship to Bobby Lashley on last week’s Raw after only holding the strap for 21 days.
However, if the Irishman’s recent comments regarding the Undertaker and WrestleMania are anything to go by, he hasn’t let this get him down.
Finn was recently representing WWE in Abu Dhabi for the World Games, and was a guest on the Kris Fade Show, where he said he’d “really love” to take on the ‘Deadman’ at ‘Mania, but does note he hasn’t taken his focus off Lashley and the IC Title just yet:
“Well, I would really love to fight Undertaker at WrestleMania but given the fact that I lost the title on Monday, I think I’m gonna attempt to convince Stephanie [McMahon] who I know is here at the World Games, to get me a rematch against Bobby Lashley for the IC Title.”
Bálor and a mystery partner will take on Lashley and his pal Lio Rush in a tag match tomorrow on Raw, but WWE appears to be advertising Finn’s Demon persona for WrestleMania, which opens up a world of possibilities.
