Finn Balor won his first ever Intercontinental Championship at Elimination Chamber last night. He defeated Bobby Lashley and his "hype" man Lio Rush to win the iconic title.
Balor's victory in the Intercontinental Championship marks a first championship win for the Irish superstar in over two and a half years. Balor was crowned the first-ever Universal Champion in August 2016 but had to relinquish the title just the very next night.
Hopefully, Finn Balor gets a good solid run with the belt this time around, and gets to display his stylish persona. Balor is an exceptional athlete and wrestler, but has failed to rise on the main roster ever since his main-roster return in April 2017.
We look at five different opponents who could line-up to face the newest Intercontinental Champion!
Elias and Finn Balor had a mini-feud last year, in which Elias surprisingly trumped over Balor. Elias is one of the hottest acts on RAW currently, and recently turned heel at Royal Rumble event.
Elias has yet to win a single title on the main-roster, even though its been two years since he debuted on the main roster. Elias has excelled in his role, and has found success with his guitarist gimmick.
Elias's short lived run as a babyface was also well-recieved, but he shockingly turned heel last month. Elias and Balor could produce some great matches, and it will give Elias a deserved shot at the championship.
Elias is a heel magnet, and Finn Balor will become a better babyface feuding with the Drifter. Even a feud between these two culminating in a win for Elias would not be shocking, as Elias is due for a title run sooner rather than later
