Super-talented NXT star Finn Balor has singled out John Cena as his dream Wrestlemania opponent.
Balor, 33, is currently plying his trade between the ropes of WWE’s highly-acclaimed developmental brand NXT and is considered one of the very finest talents in the world.
Speaking exclusively to MTV at the Performance Center in Florida, he reasoned that 15-time champ Cena had “proven over the last 10-14 years to be the absolute hardest worker in all of pro wrestling – and I want to be the guy standing opposite him.”
When MTV expressed surprised he didn’t select Daniel Bryan, Balor responded: “I’ve a lot of respect for Daniel Bryan.
“We’ve wrestled a couple of times on the indies before and we keep in touch.
“There’s a lot of dream matches, but I think John Cena would be at the top.”
Balor, who has frequently teamed with Hideo Itami in Florida, also picked a classic Wrestlemania bout as his favourite match of all time.
“[Wrestlemania 18], Hogan vs Rock,” he said.
“Just pure electricity in the air, two of the greatest of all time.
“What a story and what emotions… so Just off the charts.
“If I can try and recreate half the magic they created that night, I’ll be happy.”
