Recently on Sam Roberts' Wrestling Podcast, the inaugural WWE Universal Champion Finn Bálor discussed why he did not raise the championship when he defeated Seth Rollins at SummerSlam 2016 and whether reuniting with Luke Gallows and Carl Anderson is being considered for Bálor's return to WWE.
"[Zayn] goes, 'God, that guy's a genius!' Yet in reality, when the crowd were saying, I think, 'that belt sucks,' I was working over Seth and thought they were saying 'Bálor sucks,' and I said, 'God, they turned on me fast!'"
Bálor continued, "I couldn't lift it up. And there's one shot, I don't know if it aired on TV, but right when I got back up on the stage, the cameraman's right in my face and he's saying, 'raise the belt up, raise the belt up, I need a shot with the belt up,' I was like, 'oh, no… ' and I was like, 'argh…' and hear crunch, crunch, crunch, crunch, crunch, and I got it up. And the doctor has no idea how I'd done that or how I finished the match."
Additionally, Bálor stated that he is sure a Bullet Club reunion with Gallows and Anderson will happen eventually; however, it does not appear to be planned for his WWE return.
"Obviously, there is that link and that history. And I think that that's always a possibility. But I've kind of got my own things to handle first when I get back. I'm sure someday that will happen, we'll get a little B.C. revival going on, but right now, right now, I'm just worried about getting healthy, man. I haven't thought about where I'm going to be. I just want to get back."
