Finn Balor Reveals WWE Originally Had Different Plans For His Roman Reigns Feud

Finn Balor and Roman Reigns clashed at WWE Extreme Rules 2021

After a successful second stint in NXT, Finn Balor returned to WWE’s main roster in 2021, making a beeline for Roman Reigns’ Universal Championship.

Balor was unsuccessful in his quest, memorably losing at Extreme Rules 2021 due to the top rope coming loose. However, during an interview with Josh Martinez Balor revealed that there were different plans originally set for the two after Extreme Rules:

“I feel like it’s just been left open-ended [finish to Balor versus Reigns at Extreme Rules 2021] and the finish hasn’t been addressed and there was an idea to go a different direction, but then Brock [Lesnar] returned and the direction changed so, that’s something you kind of have to come to terms with and understand in WWE. There’s always gonna be a - if one piece of the jigsaw changes, the whole landscape changes and if someone gets hurt or someone returns, there’s always gonna be different ideas and plans put in place.

“So you just gotta be able to adapt to the ever-evolving situation and that’s what we had to do but, I feel like the finish of that match has definitely caused some watercooler talk so to speak and the fact that we’re still talking about it a year later is evidence of that and I feel like, you know, perhaps the next couple of months, we should really revisit that and address what happened that night,” said Balor.
