Finn Bálor Hoping For Universal Championship Triple Threat Match At WWE SummerSlam 2021
Roman Reigns is set to defend the title against John Cena
Finn Bálor believes the possibility of joining John Cena and Roman Reigns in the Universal Championship match at WWE SummerSlam 2021 is not completely off the cards.
Bálor's challenge to Universal Champion Reigns was accepted by The Tribal Chief but, as the duo went to sign the contract for their match at SummerSlam last week, an outside interruption by Baron Corbin saw the opportunity stolen away from The Prince.
With the former NXT Champion down, Cena ran into the ring and signed the contract instead, with official Adam Pearce confirming the Universal Championship match at SummerSlam 2021 as Roman Reigns vs. John Cena.
Bálor admitted to being frustrated with how the situation played out but says his goal is to win back the Universal Championship that he never lost, whether that comes at SummerSlam or later on.
Speaking to WWE Die Woche, Balor said: "Of course [it] hit a nerve but in the same situation, I’m sure I would have done the same, so you know, I gotta respect that and respect the approach that he [John Cena] came with, but I really believe that myself and Roman [Reigns] have unfinished business.
"Roman accepted the challenge, so, you know, it may not be SummerSlam but I’m pretty sure we’ll get down to business once Roman and John is handled.
"I’m not sure if the possibility of a Triple-Threat at SummerSlam is off the cards right now so, if we could somehow finagle that, that would be fantastic but if not, obviously the one reason I’m in SmackDown is to become Universal Champion so you know, Roman Reigns is who I want.
"I’ve wrestled John before, I’ve wrestled Roman before but what I want is to [regain] the Universal Championship."
