Next Sunday at Backlash, Seth Rollins defends his newly-won Intercontinental Championship against the man who entered WrestleMania 34's Triple Threat Match as the defending champion, The Miz.

While The Architect and The A-Lister definitely have the potential to put on a great match, one man is left out in the cold by that booking: Finn Balor.

With this week featuring the two go-home shows for the WrestleMania sequel, here are five reasons Balor could, and probably should, join his WrestleMania opponents for a sequel.
