Finn Balor gives props to his colleagues.
This past April at the 34th installment of WrestleMania the opening contest of the main show saw The Miz put the WWE Intercontinental Championship on the line in a Triple-Threat against Finn Balor and Seth Rollins. The match was well-received by those in attendance and by those who viewed the event from their personal spaces. Seth Rollins emerged victorious from the match which earned him the Grand Slam honor in WWE. Seth Rollins lost the title in the months coming out of WrestleMania but he earned it back at the 2018 SummerSlam PPV.
Prior to "The Biggest Party Of The Summer", the stars of WWE spoke with the media and former WWE Universal Champion Finn Balor partook in the media festivities as he spoke with 'Inside The Ropes'. Balor was asked about his WrestleMania debut and shared that he was surprised that others were surprised about the match being so good.
“And it was really good. People were surprised that it was good which was… I was a little bit offended by considering the fact that I pretty much made a career Triple-Threat matches." Finn said. "If you go back to Wrestle Kingdoms back in Japan with Ibushi and Low-Ki.” Balor continued, “Yeah, it’s basically.. I’ve made a living off of Triple-Threat matches. No honestly, being in the ring at WretsleMania, making my WrestleMania debut with two guys that I really respect. Seth’s probably one of the best in the business and Miz probably the most underrated in the business perhaps. But utmost respect for both of them and an even better [WrestleMania] after party.”
The WWE I.C. Title is currently tied up in a feud involving The Shield and the 'Dogs Of War'. The two sets of trios will come to blows this weekend at WWE Super Show-Down in Melbourne, Australia.
