WWE Hall of Famer Edge recently talked about the Royal Rumble match between Finn Bálor and Brock Lesnar. The match saw Lesnar retain the WWE Universal Championship, as Finn fell in his bid to overthrow The Beast Incarnate.
However, Edge had nothing but great things to say about the man that tried to take down The Conqueror.
“Finn played his part to perfection. I was so proud of him. I was so happy for him. I thought that match did more for him, that 15 minute match did more for him, so far than anything else in his entire run. If they ever doubted whether the people accepted him, if they ever doubted whether he could hold that role, or also be believable against a guy like Brock, yes, the way they did it and they put it together made it very believable. But he held up his end of the bargain. It was just really really well done.”
But it was Lesnar’s actions after beating Finn that took many fans by surprise. Lesnar indeed won the match but after he forced Finn to tap out, Brock then assaulted Bálor. It was as if WWE was pouring more salt in the wounds of fans that truly wanted to see Finn finally regain the Universal Championship.
However, Edge has a very different take on the situation.

“The thing that I liked almost more than the match, was the fact that Brock acted like a big spoiled baby at the end because he got hurt. So he got mad that he got hurt and kept going back, which made Bálor feel like so much more of a threat. Because he was reacting that way, it made Bálor a huge threat. His masculinity was threatened.”
Lesnar has now moved onto Seth Rollins, who will challenge him for the Universal title at WrestleMania 35 on April 7. Rollins earned the right to face Brock when he won The Men’s Royal Rumble Match on January 27.
