WWE star Finn Balor has noted that he felt disrespected by the fans on the June 12 edition of Raw during his promo segment.
During the show, Balor confronted World Heavyweight Champion Seth Rollins to challenge him to a title match, stating that he wants to get revenge following SummerSlam 2016, when he suffered an injury in a bout against Rollins which ultimately forced him to relinquish the Universal Championship.
Unfortunately for Balor, sang Rollins’ theme music through Balor’s entire promo, not taking the next World Heavyweight Title challenger seriously.
Speaking on WWE After The Bell, Balor shared his honest thoughts on the moment, explaining why he felt disrespected:
“I felt disrespected. Obviously, the fans are there, they paid money to have their voice heard and they’re entitled to that, but for me personally, after what I’ve gone through and lost at the hands of Seth Rollins over the past seven years, I felt disrespected.
“I waited seven years to tell people and tell Seth most importantly how I felt and for his supporters to just drown out what I had pent up for seven years was disrespectful.
“That disrespect has now been turned into anger that I need to relieve by defeating Seth Rollins, not only for the World Heavyweight Championship, but for vengeance over what he took from me.”
Balor will challenge for Rollins’ gold at Saturday’s Money in the Bank 2023 show.
Backstage news has emerged on the potential opening and closing matches of this weekend’s event, which you can read more about right here.
