3 places that make sense for Finn Balor right now
Finn Balor is arguably one of the best in-ring performers in the WWE today, just as Paul Heyman. He was crowned as the first WWE Universal Champion, and the first to relinquish the said title. Since the injury that caused the relinquishing of his championship, Balor has found himself in many awful bookings and lacklustre feuds, ranging from being squashed by Kane to a supernatural promo war with Bray Wyatt that was hindered by backstage illness.
It's hard to see where the WWE is planning on taking Balor. Considering there have been substantial rumours that Vince McMahon simply doesn’t think Balor is “over” enough with the crowd, we doubt a major title run is in Balor’s near future, but that doesn’t mean some sort of gold isn’t far away from the horizon.
Here are the three logical places we see Finn Balor ending up soon.
#3 Team up with Gallows & Anderson
It’s not hard to notice that the WWE Universe has some serious affection for the Bullet Club. A faction that has never existed in and of itself in the WWE, any telecast of Smackdown or Raw and the front 10 rows are comprised of dozens of fans donning Bullet Club merchandise – the WWE should tap into this, and they’ve already got the players to do so.
AJ Styles is above and beyond any faction, but with Finn Balor’s recent struggles as a singles competitor, it makes perfect sense to pair him up with former Bullet Club members Luke Gallows and Karl Anderson for 2018 stable that has all the makings of a dominant core. Gallows and Anderson, the Magic Killers, have undoubtedly fallen from grace in the WWE tag team landscape, but by combining their talents with Finn’s, the WWE can finally tap into the nascent interest in Bullet Club its Universe has explicitly expressed in recent months.
That, my friends, would be “too sweet.”
