Finn Balor won his only World Title in WWE on August 21st 2016 during the annual SummerSlam pay-per-view at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn, New York, when he defeated Seth Rollins after 19 minutes and 24 seconds to become the inaugural Universal Champion.
On July 1st 2023, fans will witness a rematch from back then, when Balor gets the chance to wrestle World Heavyweight Champion Seth Rollins for the title at the Money In The Bank PPV in London, England (UK).
While neither athlete is technically a ‘Heavyweight’ (220 lbs or above), at least Seth is over 200 lbs at the moment. On the other hand, Finn around 170 lbs, so him winning a title with that weight limit in its official name would sort of reduce it to absurdity, not to take anything away from his skills or in-ring performances of course.
Famous Pro Wrestling Journalist Bill Apter sees it the same way and gave his statement on the situation during a recent episode of WrestleBinge.
Here’s what Apter said:
“Well, Finn Balor is an incredible wrestler, as is Seth Rollins, but I don’t see him on that World Champion level.
To me, he is just a little bit under that. I think his work in the ring is spectacular and all that, he is small in stature, and again no knock to him at all, but I think Seth Rollins will beat him.”
