5 Reasons Finn Balor Could (or should) Get Added to the Backlash IC Title Match
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.
#5 Backlash is all about sequels
If there's one thing the WrestleMania followup show is for, it's for sequels; we've covered how WWE loves to remix its featured matches from The Grandaddy of 'Em All a few weeks later to tread familiar, and successful, ground.
Already, the WWE World Championship is being defended in a rematch (albeit one with a better heel/face dynamic and which should promise better drama, if its participants are able to build on their intensity in Jeddah), as is the RAW Women's Championship.
The current Intercontinental Championship booking is a partial rematch, taking 2/3 of a great triple threat, but fully embracing the rematch would give fans a repeat viewing of a thrilling opener from New Orleans.
