Finn Balor

ESPN.com is featuring a quote from Finn Balor regarding his Universal Championship match against Brock Lesnar this Sunday at the Royal Rumble PPV.

Balor made it clear that he will be the one facing Lesnar this weekend and not to expected his “Demon” character to show up at the event.

“I feel like maybe I leaned on the demon too much there in the past as a crutch, and I can assure you that the man who faces Brock Lesnar at the Royal Rumble will be Finn Balor, the man. I think a lot of people were surprised when I came out at WrestleMania not in demon paint but I feel like I had a bigger message to spread that day — one of equality and acceptance.”

Balor admitted the match came about so quickly he didn’t even really consider it.

“Honestly, this match just kind of came about so fast that I haven’t had much time to think about it. I don’t have any new gear, I don’t have any new looks, I don’t have any new ideas right now, but you know, we’re still six days away, so I’m sure I’ll come up with something.”
