to defeat #FinnBalor
boss Vince McMahon has backed Brock Lesnar to defeat Finn Balor at WWE Royal Rumble that takes place on Sunday. McMahon was present on Raw during the opening segment this week, where he was interrupted by Braun Strowman and Balor. While addressing all the superstars present in the ring, he backed Lesnar and said, “If any of you in hillbilly land actually believe that Finn can beat Brock then you definitely believe in fairytales.” While Vince showed confidence in Lesnar, Balor did say that he believes in fairytales and seemed confident to defeat Lesnar at the event. During the same segment, a match between Balor and Strowman was announced, where Lesnar made his presence felt by F5ing his opponent for Sunday; sending a clear message to him.
Lesnar was to face Strowman on Sunday but the latter was pulled out of the match after he tore off a door of Mr McMahon’s car last week. The boss of WWE had only fined him $1000000 but Strowman wasn’t affected with it, which saw McMahon taking a strict action against him.
Later, a fatal four-way match was announced for the main event where Balor defeated John Cena, Drew McIntyre and Barcon Corbin to book a match against Lesnar for the Universal title. If Balor defeats Lesnar, this will be the second time when he will hold the title as he was the inaugural champion by virtue of winning the title in 2016.
This will be the first time when Balor and Lesnar will be up against each other in a one-on-one match. It is no doubted that Strowman is expected to make his presence felt during the match and a likely interruption is on the cards, that will cost either of Balor and Lesnar match at the pay-per-view event.
