Finn Balor Wants His Universal Title Back, Will Face Brock Lesnar If Needed

The question has been a source of scuttlebutt for the last few months: are Finn Balor and Brock Lesnar headed for a showdown?

Balor was asked this in a recent interview with Metro. He says his goal after Bray Wyatt is getting back the Universal title he had to give up after getting injured at last year's SummerSlam.

Listen, I don’t shy away from a fight for one second and I would absolutely love to be in there with Brock Lesnar. I would love to get in there with The Undertaker and Triple H too, these are guys that have been active at the top of the game for the last 20 years. They’re the type of guys I want to be in the ring with. We talk about stepping up and taking things to the next level, and I think that’s what I need to do next. Once I handle Bray Wyatt, I need to be going after the Universal Championship which I was never beaten for. Yes, Brock Lesnar is the current champion, but make sure you don’t forget that I relinquished the title due to injury, I was never beaten, and I definitely think that I deserve a title shot.

The current indication seems to be that Bray Wyatt and Finn Balor will go at it one more time, this time with Wyatt unleashing Sister Abigail, which was recently revealed to be another persona of Wyatt.
