Many wrestling fans were glad Finn Balor beat Bray Wyatt at No Mercy, leaving us the impression this purposeless rivalry was finally over. Of course, the WWE will keep tormenting us with this rivalry, because something happened at RAW that would seem to indicate the rivalry is far from over. Ugh!

Beating Wyatt as the Demon and the Man

If you have been following the rivalry, you already know that Finn Balor has beaten Bray Wyatt twice. The first time, he beat Bray Wyatt as the demon. The second time, he beat Bray Wyatt as the man during the No Mercy pay-per-view.

Everyone believed that the rivalry would end once Finn Balor beat Wyatt as the man. It seems like the WWE has other plans and refuses to put Balor in the title picture. Of course, they could have other plans by pitting Finn Balor against Lesnar, only to lose the opportunity due to Wyatt. Unfortunately, it is highly likely to head this way, considering the WWE has their heart set on keeping Lesnar champion until WrestleMania.

Why Do You Think the Rivalry Is Continuing?

I believe the rivalry is continuing after seeing the match between Goldust and Finn Balor. After Finn beat Goldust, Bray Wyatt’s eerie music started to play; this seems to indicate Bray Wyatt is not done with Finn.

If I would have to guess why the WWE has done this, I would say it has everything to do with Finn chasing the Universal Title. Since Finn Balor is one of their biggest stars, they obviously cannot make him lose to Brock Lesnar in a clean manner. However, if Finn does get a match for the title at TLC, they could make him lose thanks to interference with Wyatt. Unfortunately, this puts him in another rivalry with the “Eater of Worlds”, a rivalry many people don’t want to see.

Even though it is time for Finn Balor to take that Universal Championship and make it mean something again. It seems the WWE is adamant to keep Lesnar as a champion. While Lesnar has been putting in some appearances, it is clear the current champion cannot cope with lengthy matches. So, instead, we have someone who portrays the image of an unbeatable champion, but is far from that!

Will Finn Get the Universal Championship Eventually?

I have no doubt that Finn will eventually get the WWE Universal Championship, but it is not going to happen until after WrestleMania. You also have other contenders, including Braun Strowman, who are quite deserving to a lengthy title reign.

With everything into place for Roman Reigns to take the title at WrestleMania, I don’t expect much for the Universal Title over the next couple of months. This makes me wonder if we should tune in at all? We have many good wrestlers, but a reluctance to reward anyone else but Lesnar.

What do you think about the rivalry between Finn Balor and Bray Wyatt resuming? How do you see Finn’s chances of getting his hands on the Universal Title over the next couple of months? Let us know in the comment section below!
