We are back and Michael Cole is in the ring and he talks about the week that his guest had. He brings out Finn Balor.
Michael mentions Finn being a first round draft pick and he says Finn proved it was not a fluke. Finn agrees that it has been a wild couple of weeks. He says he knew that he had to come to Raw and make an impact. He knew that coming here meant a lot of things.
Seth Rollins’ music plays and he makes his way to the ring.
Rollins introduces Finn. He says Finn is a former NXT Champion. He wasn’t the first one because that was Seth Rollins. He says Finn was picked in the first round, but he wasn’t the first overall pick.
Last week, Finn shocked the world when he pinned Roman Reigns. Seth says that was admirable and he had a career threatening injury and came back on his first night back and beat Roman Reigns for the WWE Title. He calls Finn a cheap remake of Seth Rollins.
Finn says some of the things you say are true. You were the first to do some of those things. Finn says he will beat Seth at SummerSlam and become the first WWE Universal Champion.
Seth says that Finn is funny, but he is not a comedian. That is like expecting the Braves to win the World Series. He tells Finn he has beaten a lot of people and NXT would not be where it is today without Finn Balor. Seth tells Finn this is his show and this is his ring. He tells Finn that he is the man.
Balor says that he has been watching Seth for a while and he thought Seth’s laugh was bad, but hearing it live is annoying. He says that everywhere he has been, someone said they were the man. Finn says he beat that person to be the man.
Seth says you have never faced anyone like him. He is stronger, faster, and the most resiliant in the industry. If you want an idea, get on the WWE Network and watch his sweet special. Maybe he can watch when Seth faces Sami Zayn and makes an example of him.
Finn says there is one thing that is different about them. Finn says he earned his title match while Seth had it handed to him.
Seth says he has never had anything handed to him. He will be handed the WWE Universal Title when he beats Finn.
Finn says the only thing that Seth will have handed to him is his ass.
Seth tries to punch Finn but Finn blocks it and Finn with a Pele Kick and Seth goes to the floor.
