Fastlane 2019 : 3 things that Finn Balor can do at this WWE PPV
- The Intercontinental Champion is not on the official match card of Fastlane, but that doesn't mean he can't do anything.
The Extraordinary Man Who Does Extraordinary Things, Finn Balor, won the WWE Intercontinental Championship at WWE Elimination Chamber from Bobby Lashley last month. The leader of the Balor Club has had a good reign thus far on the red brand, but he could not make it to the match card of the last stop before WrestleMania, WWE Fastlane.
On the road to Fastlane, he fought in multiple tag team matches along with defending his title once against the Man of the Hour, Lio Rush. However, he will not be putting his title on the line at Fastlane.
While WWE has already announced 7 matches for the Fastlane main show, there can always be a last minute change. Here are the 3 things that Balor can do on Sunday.
#3 Defend his Intercontinental Championship in an Open Challenge
Finn Balor can bring back the Intercontinental Championship Open Challenge just like how former United States Champions brought back the US Title Open Challenge. He can simply come out and issue an open challenge to anyone backstage to try and take the title from him.
There are a lot of RAW superstars like Jinder Mahal, Mojo Rawley, and Tyler Breeze who can accept the challenge. Also, since its a dual branded pay-per-view, someone from SmackDown Live like Cesaro, Kofi Kingston or R-Truth can fight with Finn. The recent NXT call-up Johnny Gargano can also answer the open challenge, or a returning Sami Zayn can collide with Balor in a dream match.
The possibilities are innumerable and all WWE has to do is allow the champion Finn Balor to go out in the middle of the ring and issue an open challenge for the Intercontinental title.
