• Possible Spoiler Regarding Bray Wyatt – Finn Balor Feud
As seen on last night’s episode of RAW, Bray Wyatt’s “The Fiend” gimmick debuted and laid out Finn Balor with a Sister Abigail.
According to the Wrestling Observer, Bray Wyatt vs. Finn Balor will now take place at next month’s SummerSlam 2019 pay-per-view.
It should be noted that Wyatt will most likely crush Balor at SummerSlam and this would lead to Balor being written off TV because Pro Wrestling Sheet is reporting that Balor has asked WWE officials to take two months off so he can ‘recharge’ himself.
