Balor did not hesitate to express his feelings about Cena. He confessed he still remembers what Cena did to him and he will take his revenge. However, Balor wants to defeat Cena at WrestleMania to give a fitting end to this cold rivalry.

“I can’t think of a better place to face John Cena than at WrestleMania,” said Balor. “I’ve got a bone to pick with John, the SummerSlam main event was mine, my name was printed on the contract, however, John signed it. There’s certainly an issue that needs to be settled between me and John and if we can do that at WrestleMania all the better.”
