WWE Rumors: Plans For Finn Balor After Payback Revealed
on Apr 24, 2017 06:00 AM EDT
Finn Balor has only been involved in one major feud during his short stint on the main roster. He missed more than six months due to an injury but now that he is healthy, he will have his first major feud since his return after Payback.
"The Demon" was called up during the WWE Draft last year after getting selected fifth overall by Monday Night Raw. He immediately made an impact by becoming the first ever WWE Universal Champion. He defeated superstars like Roman Reigns and Seth Rollins clean but a shoulder injury forced him to miss time.
The former WWE Universal champion returned the day after WrestleMania 33 when he teamed up with Rollins to defeat Samoa Joe and Kevin Owens, per WWE.com. He then had several matches with Jinder Mahal and Curt Hawkins but no major matches just yet.
Finn Balor suffered a concussion two weeks ago against Mahal but he was cleared to return last week. The WWE is saving up a big feud for him right after the Payback pay-per-view on April 30. The latest rumors have revealed plans for Balor moving forward.
According to Dave Meltzer of the Wrestling Observer, the current plan for Finn Balor is to face Bray Wyatt after Payback. The WWE teased a future match between the two mysterious superstars two weeks ago but it seems like they are going to do it earlier than expected.
"So the one thing is, it looks like they're going to do, coming out of the House of Horrors, Finn Balor and Bray Wyatt are gonna be doing a program. They pretty much almost outright said it when Balor was wrestling that there's something going on with him. It's new, and it may be very good," Meltzer said.
Finn Balor vs. Bray Wyatt is a dream match for many fans and they are finally going to see it on WWE television. However, these are just rumors at the moment and should be taken with a grain of salt. The WWE tends to change their plans on a regular basis.
