Finn Balor Defends Roman Reigns From Recent Criticism


WWE Superstar Finn Balor recently did an interview with Sky Sports. During the interview, Balor defended Roman Reigns against the recent criticism he has been under from the professional wrestling community.

Balor noted that Reigns is one of the hardest working athletes in the company. He also said Reigns is extremely polite and is willing to help out anybody:

“I don’t get it, He’s probably one of the hardest working people in WWE, he looks great, he’s professional, a great talker and behind everything, a great person.”

“He’s great behind the scenes, he will help you with anything you want and he’s always polite. He was great to me when I first came into WWE and he continues to help me today. I can’t speak of anything but greatness for Roman Reigns, he’s one of the all-time greats.

“I think it’s monkey do as monkey see and people are easily led. They might read what one person has written in a newsletter, decide that person’s right, and then jump on the bandwagon.

“That’s what’s happened with Roman. People are very fickle – I remember when The Shield were doing their thing and everyone was behind Roman; he was the coolest guy in The Shield. Opinions change in this business and they forget the past but Roman ain’t sweating it.”

Reigns vs. Balor

Last night Reigns and Balor actually main evented Monday Night RAW. Reigns won the Universal Championship at SummerSlam over the weekend. He defeated Brock Lesnar in the show’s main event.

The following night, Reigns opened the show and declared he wanted to give Finn Balor the Universal Title rematch he never received. Balor and Reigns put on a great match, but when it was all said and done, “The Big Dog” left Brooklyn with the title.
