Being a champion in WWE NXT does not guarantee success on the main roster as well. Superstars like Finn Balor, Bayley, Sami Zayn, etc were great in the developmental brand, but they have not been able to find the same level of success on the main roster.

Finn Balor still holds the record of being the longest serving NXT champion. He held the title for 292 days before dropping it to Kevin Owens. Having such a blistering career in NXT, WWE brought Finn Balor to the main roster during the brand split in 2016, and immediately made him the first ever Universal Champion.

He even pinned Roman Reigns clean on the first night of his Raw career, but a shoulder injury forced him to relinquish the title, and ever since coming back, he has been treated as an afterthought.

Finn deserves to be at the top of the card, as not only is he a fantastic in-ring worker, but he is also very charismatic, and connects well with the WWE audience. Despite his poor booking, there are ways WWE could still save him.

Seth Rollins is the current Intercontinental champion. He is scheduled to face Shinsuke Nakamura in a champion vs champion match at Survivor Series. But after that, he is all set to feud with his former tag team partner, Dean Ambrose.

Ambrose vs Rollins does not need a championship. The feud will carry itself, given the emotional drama surrounding it, and as a result, WWE should take the title off Rollins and should put it on Finn Balor.

Yes, with Constable Corbin around it would be difficult for Finn to get a title opportunity, but WWE could still make it happen.
