Pros and cons of Finn Balor being in the Elimination Chamber match
Finn Balor will have one last chance at qualifying for the Elimination Chamber, but is a victory next week on Raw the best thing for him?
WWE made a surprise announcement when they revealed that Finn Balor, Bray Wyatt, 'Woken' Matt Hardy and Apollo Crews would compete for a spot in the Elimination Chamber next week on Raw in a second chance fatal-four-way match. While Balor is the obvious favorite to win the match, there are good and bad things that could happen as a result of that decision.
With that being said, here are the pros and cons of Finn Balor winning the contest and going on to compete in the Elimination Chamber match.
Pro: Putting him back in the Universal Title hunt?
It's no secret that the WWE Universe wants to see Finn Balor compete for the Universal Title one more time, and what better way to do that then have him win the fatal four-way match and enter the Elimination Chamber. Not only does this allow WWE to make up for Balor being eliminated earlier, but also gives him a chance to go to 'Mania.
If nothing else, having Balor win the last chance fatal-four-way allows him to gain some of his momentum back and gives him some sort of storyline direction heading into WrestleMania 34. It may not be what everyone wants, especially since most fans want Balor to win the Elimination Chamber match as well, but it puts him in a much better place than the midcard position he is stuck at now.
