Randy Orton Talks ‘Super ShowDown,’ Teases a Feud with Finn Bálor


Randy Orton’s interview on WWE’s Super ShowDown event has been posted on the company’s YouTube channel. This video follows the one featuring Orton’s opponent for the June 7 event, Triple H.

The Viper talked about his history with The Game and pointed out that he never had a chance to take Hunter down on a big stage.

“I never really had the opportunity to beat him in front of a large crowd of people. Batista did, when he was coming up. John Cena has, Roman Reigns has, I think Seth Rollins has, so I think it’s my turn to get that notch on my belt that has Triple H’s name on it.”

Orton was then asked what’s next for him after his match with The Game. Orton said he missed his family and was anxious to get home. But he also mentioned the possibility of feuding with Finn Bálor on SmackDown Live.

“He’s got the I-C strap. It’s been a long time since I had that title, the Intercontinental title. I wouldn’t mind taking if off Fin, lugging it around the world for couple of weeks, months. There’s all kinds of talent that I’d like to work with I think Finn Bálor would be at the top of that list.”

Orton’s match with Triple H has had extremely little buildup, but that’s been the case for the majority of matches booked at Super ShowDown. The Saudi Arabia card also features Kofi Kingston defending the WWE Championship against Dolph Ziggler, Seth Rollins defending the Universal title against Baron Corbin and the dream match of Goldberg versus The Undertaker.
