This week’s RAW saw Goldberg return to issue a surprising challenge for Drew McIntyre’s WWE Championship at the Royal Rumble, and Finn Balor has made his thoughts about it known.
Speaking to Alistair McGeorge of Metro, the NXT Champion had the following to say:
It doesn’t bother me at all. I believe that everyone has a place in this business, and if you’re on the show, you’re on the show for a reason. If you’re on the show once a year, if you’re on the show every night, that’s down to everybody’s individual circumstance. Those guys have carved out their legacy and proven over the years that they belong on the show. Whether it’s for one night or it’s every night, that doesn’t affect me and it shouldn’t affect anyone else.
Balor was also asked about Hulk Hogan’s comments from before RAW where he said he believes that the younger talent of today feel like he’s ‘going to steal the main event.’
For me, when the tide comes in, all the ships rise. If we can have Goldberg on the show, if we can have anyone on the show for one night, I feel it’s better one night than never. I welcome these legends with open arms!
All very positive from the Irishman!
