Fastlane 2019: 3 Items that Finn Balor can Perform in this WWE PPV
The Extraordinary Man Who Would Extraordinary Things, Finn Balor, won the WWE Intercontinental Championship in WWE Elimination Chamber from Bobby Lashley last month. The leader of the Balor Club has had a fantastic reign thus far on the red brand, but he couldn’t make it to the game card of the final stop before WrestleMania, WWE Fastlane.
However, he won’t be putting his title on the line in Fastlane.
While WWE has announced 7 games for the Fastlane main display, there may always be a last minute change. Here are the 3 things that Balor can perform on Sunday.
#1 Confront his WrestleMania opponent backstage
WrestleMania 35 is going to be the biggest night of Finn Balor’s WWE career as for the first time, Balor will venture into the Grandest Stage of Them All as a winner. In his previous WrestleMania appearance, the leader of the Balor Club was a part of the triple threat Intercontinental Championship match, also between Seth Rollins and The Miz.
But this time he is the Intercontinental Champion. His feud with Lashley and Lio Rush is now stale. WWE should plan a new storyline for the Intercontinental Championship.

The backstage officials have not determined John Cena’s WrestleMania opponent yet and it would be great if they insert him in a feud with Balor. They even have a legitimate reason to put Cena in this game as the Intercontinental Championship is the only title that he has not won in his illustrious career.
John Cena can make a surprise appearance this Sunday where he can have a confrontation with his WrestleMania opponent to kick off their feud.
#2 Combine the Shield
Elias has been an essential part of The Shield vs Dogs of War 2.0 feud but the Drifter wasn’t contained in the tag team match between the two groups scheduled to happen on Sunday.
But he could be added to the heel faction merely to stack the odds from the Shield. Though the Shield don’t call for a 4th member to dismantle the heels, Triple H could add yet another member to level the odds. When the Shield and the heel faction would be outside awaiting the last participant of the game, Finn Balor would come out to a massive pop.
Balor can play a very important part in this game and will put on a bunch of momentum from standing tall with all the faces at the end of this game.
#3 Shield his Intercontinental Championship in an Open Challenge
He could simply come out and issue an open challenge to anyone backstage to try to take the title from him.
There are a great deal of RAW superstars like Jinder Mahal, Mojo Rawley, and Tyler Breeze who will accept the challenge. Additionally, since its a double branded pay-per-view, someone from SmackDown Live like Cesaro, Kofi Kingston or R-Truth can fight with Finn. The current NXT call-up Johnny Gargano can also answer the open battle, or a returning Sami Zayn can collide with Balor in a fantasy game.
The options are countless and all WWE has to do is allow the winner Finn Balor to go out in the center of the ring and issue an open challenge to the Intercontinental title.
