Finn Balor is not only the current NXT Champion, he is also the first Universal Champion and one of the most talented athletes on the roster.
Last week on SmackDown, Royal Rumble winner Edge hinted that he will go after whoever the Universal Champion is after Elimination Chamber. However, there is a chance that Edge will face Finn Balor at WrestleMania.
Speaking on the Busted Open Radio podcast, Mark Henry said that Edge hinting at a show with Roman Reigns might just be ‘smoke and mirrors’, while in reality, he could go after Finn Balor’s Championship from ‘The Prince of NXT’.
“But it could just be lip-service. It could just be smoke and mirrors and mind games. I could easily go to NXT and say it would be Roman Reigns who I would pick, but I picked you, Finn. You have something I never had before. “.
Mark Henry went on to say that it would be easy for Edge to go to NXT and help change the perception that it is just a developing brand, and one notch below the other two shows.
The WWE Hall of Famer also stated that he believes that WWE is trying to establish that NXT is no longer just a developing brand and wants to change that perception among some fans.
Finn Balor is the NXT Champion and is considered on the same level as the RAW WWE Champion or the SmackDown Universal Champion by many fans. Last year, Charlotte Flair chose to face NXT Women’s Champion Rhea Ripley after winning the Royal Rumble. Therefore, it is possible that WWE will choose Edge to face Finn Balor to have more eyes on the Black and Gold brand.
Edge vs Finn Balor at WrestleMania 37?
Edge visited NXT after winning the Royal Rumble and tipped off Finn Balor. However, it seemed like a unique apparition. Although, if The Rated-R Superstar decides to challenge Finn Balor for the NXT Championship, it would not only guarantee fans an all-star fight, but it will also elevate NXT to new heights.
