Why has WWE booked this match for the Royal Rumble?
Why has WWE booked this match for the Royal Rumble?

This was one of the better episodes of RAW in recent memory. It ended with something that the WWE Universe has been yearning for, for a long time. Finn Balor will take Brock Lesnar on at the Royal Rumble. The Universal Championship will be on the line.

Does it not feel surreal when you even mention it out loud. So many of Balor's fans have been waiting for him to get this opportunity, but he somehow never seems to get his due. This is the first time since his initial push that he's been given the spotlight that he deserves.

I will mention 5 reasons why Finn Balor is in the Universal Championship match at WrestleMania in this article. Feel free to share your thoughts in the comments.

I am curious to know what you have to say about the situation and if you think Balor can end up dethroning Brock Lesnar to become Universal Champion again.


#5 To give the fans a dream match

There's a new regime in charge and they have promised change

On the night after TLC, Baron Corbin was ousted from his position of power. The McMahons assumed control of both RAW and SmackDown Live and made a promise to the WWE Universe. There would be new faces and new opportunities on the show.

While Finn Balor has been a former Universal Champion, he has been kept out of the title picture for so very long (if you discount the one title shot he had against Roman Reigns) that this feels like it's a fresh opportunity. It is certainly in line with what fans want and the McMahon family wants to give the fans exactly what they've asked for.

Will Finn Balor win the title? Probably not.
