Finn Balor accepts Edge’s challenge, picks date for dream match. The Rated-R superstar recently laid a challenge to the first ever WWE Universal Champion.
Edge’s surprise return to the WWE at Royal Rumble this year opened up a multitude of dream match possibilities. The Rated-R superstar has feuded with a familiar face in Randy Orton. However, he recently acknowledged a desire to face Finn Balor in the middle of the ring.

NXT’s Robert Stone attempted to convince Edge to become a part of the Robert Stone Brand. Edge agreed as long as he could fulfil a few of his demands; one of which was a clash against Balor at a NXT TakeOver.

The first ever WWE Universal Champion has finally responded to the challenge.
Finn Balor accepts Edge’s challenge, picks date for dream match
“Somebody was talking online about possibly challenging Finn Balor at NXT Takeover and that was Edge I would like to address that situation right now,” Balor told The Irish Mirror. “Edge was saying he wanted to face Finn Balor at Takeover so if we could do it at Takeover Dublin all the better.
Balor praised Edge’s professionalism and expressed his eagerness to share the stage with him someday.
“An absolute legend in the the ring, but what an absolute gent and a true pro outside the ring.
“I’ve always said it to both him and Christian that when they retired, I met them at a couple of media appearances and I said: ‘lads, you two are like how I’d look to transition out of wrestling – to carry yourself with such professionalism – and to see him (Edge) back is fantastic. Getting the chance to wrestle with him would be even better.”
TakeOver Dublin was originally scheduled to take place in April. However, the Covid-19 Pandemic pushed the dates back to October. Even so, while the dream match sounds terrific on paper, it is unlikely to take place, at least not this year. Edge tore his triceps during his match against Randy Orton at Backlash and is likely to sit out for the rest of 2020.
