Opinion: Finn Balor should have a major heel turn at WWE Crown Jewel

Last updated

Finn Balor is set to appear in the final of the King of The Ring tournament on Thursday October 21st at the Crown Jewel event in Saudi Arabia.

Balor is set to face either Xavier Woods or Jinder Mahal in the final, and if Woods gets to the final then fans will be desperate to see him win the whole thing.

Woods has been desperate to win the crown of KOTR for many, many years and having Balor cheat to win and become the new King of WWE would certainly give his character a renewed boost following his loss to Roman Reigns at the Extreme Rules PPV event.

King Balor certainly has a ring to it, and seeing the Prince graduate to a top heel character on the blue brand could open up the possibilities for a Balor vs Nakamura feud on Friday nights.
