– Above is video of Kayla Braxton talking to Finn Balor after he was named to the men’s Team RAW for WWE Survivor Series on this week’s show. Balor says he earned his spot on the team for the second year in a row and was happy to do it. Regarding differences with other team members, Balor said the #1 goal is to get the win for Commissioner Stephanie McMahon and he will choose to work as a team. Balor knows Drew McIntyre doesn’t work well as a team player but he will handle him like a bully if he goes into business for himself.
Regarding the news of the WWE Mixed Match Challenge winners getting the #30 spots in the Royal Rumble matches this January plus an expense-paid vacation, Balor said he hasn’t had a vacation in a long time but maybe he’d pick Hawaii, Alaska or a trip home to Ireland if he’s allowed to pick the destination, and if he and Bayley can win the MMC then they won’t have to last as long in the Rumble match, but first thing’s first and that’s Survivor Series.
