After his defeat to John Cena on Monday, Finn Balor won’t be a part of Raw’s Elimination Chamber match to determine the No.1 contender for the WWE Universal Championship at WrestleMania. The defeat came as a surprise to many on social media, after Balor had received such a positive run in the Royal Rumble match on Sunday, whereas Cena is seen to be transitioning into a star-maker role.
With Balor now out of the Elimination Chamber match, some have questioned what’s next for Balor. According to our sources, the current plan is for The Balor Club to enter into a mini-feud with The Miztourage. This is likely to lead to a Balor-Miz Intercontinental Title program. The Miz seemingly concluded his feud with Roman Reigns on Monday Night Raw, when he retained his Intercontinental Championship in Reigns’ automatic rematch. Reigns will now go on to qualify for the Elimination Chamber match, which he will win, as exclusively revealed by The Dirty Sheets many months ago.
