The crowd inside INTRUST Bank Arena in Wichita, Kansas Monday night for “WWE Raw” was firmly behind Finn Balor. The fans chanted his name and sang his theme song throughout the night, and they were rewarded when Balor challenged Seth Rollins for the WWE World Heavyweight Championship at the Money in the Bank event on July 1.
Balor Calls Out Rollins
In a heated segment between the two on Monday night, Balor reminded everyone that it was he who defeated Roman Reigns on his first night on the main roster; that it was he who became the first WWE Universal Champion. That is, until “The Visionary” took it all away from him. Nearly seven years ago at SummerSlam, “The Demon” defeated Rollins to win the gold, but his triumph was short-lived due to suffering a series of injuries during the match that kept him out of action for a year.
Balor Earns Title Shot
Last week on “Raw,” Balor interrupted Damian Priest's World Heavyweight Championship match despite being told not to. As punishment, Balor was put in a match against Priest, with the winner earning a title shot against Rollins at Money in the Bank. Balor defeated Priest, and now he will get his chance to avenge his loss to Rollins and become WWE World Heavyweight Champion once again.
Balor Promises to Win
And despite the Wichita crowd endlessly singing “The Revolutionary's” song, Balor promised to return the favor to Seth, declaring, “I'm gonna take it all at Money in the Bank!”
This is sure to be an epic match, and it will be interesting to see who comes out on top. Will Balor finally get his revenge on Rollins and become WWE World Heavyweight Champion? Or will Rollins retain his title and continue his dominance? Only time will tell.
