Finn Balor hopes rumors of 11-time world champ returning at WWE SummerSlam are true
WWE Superstar Finn Balor is looking forward to 11-time world champion Edge possibly returning at this weekend’s SummerSlam show.
A recent report revealed that WWE had plans for Edge to return at SummerSlam. The report further stated that plans were changed with the retirement of Vince McMahon. The Hall of Famer has been absent from TV after he was ousted from The Judgment Day faction by Balor, Damian Priest, and Rhea Ripley.
During a recent appearance on the Cheap Heat podcast, Balor hoped that the rumors of Edge returning are true as he wants to have a feud with the Hall of Famer.
“I ain’t worried about that [Edge returning]. I’m actually kinda looking forward to it. I hope there is some truth behind the rumor because, you know, I would love to step in the ring with Edge,” Balor said.
The former Universal Champion added that he had “given up” on the prospect of a match with the Hall of Famer after the latter’s retirement, but that flame seems to have been reignited.
“Edge was someone who retired a long time ago and someone who I looked up to and admired, especially the way he transitioned out of the business. It was something that I’d kind of given up on, the idea of a match with Edge a long time ago, and I’d spoken to him about this.” [14:48 – 15:33]
