This WWE SmackDown Live star is teasing a match we would all love to see.

That star is former WWE Universal Champion Finn Balor, who is widely known for his tenure with New Japan Pro-Wrestling (NJPW) as Prince Devitt before jumping to the sports entertainment company.

While portraying this character, he is a three-time IWGP Junior Heavyweight Champion and six-time IWGP Junior Heavyweight Tag Team Champion.

Balor signed with WWE in 2014 and was placed in NXT. Balor became a one-time NXT Champion with his reign being the longest in the title's history at 292 days (although WWE recognizes it at 293).

He was then called up to the main roster and beat Seth Rollins at SummerSlam last year to win the WWE Universal Title. Balor became the first wrestler in WWE history to win a world title in their pay-per-view debut.

This marked the quickest wrestler in WWE history to win a world title at 27 days following his main roster debut by becoming the Universal Title. However, he relinquished the championship a day later due to suffering a legitimate shoulder injury during the match.

Balor had a lot of members of the WWE Universe talking when he decided to take to his official Instagram account to tease an epic match with fan favorite, former WWE SmackDown Live General Manager and former WWE World Heavyweight Champion Daniel Bryan.

It seems like as soon as the sports entertainment company cleared Bryan to return to in-ring action after his battles with a history of concussions, everyone has been calling him out for a match in a WWE ring and that includes the former Universal Champion.

If it was up to Balor then he would love to step into the squared circle with Bryan at the biggest event of the year for the sports entertainment company, WrestleMania.

WrestleMania 35 is scheduled to take place on Sunday, April 7, 2019 in East Rutherford, NJ at MetLife Stadium.

This event airs on pay-per-view (PPV) and WWE Network and is the most successful and longest-running professional wrestling event in history. Both Raw and SmackDown rosters will be featured.

Balor posted the following photo that had WWE fans around the world talking about the possibility of this match happening:
