WWE Superstar Finn Balor is apparently not looked at as a main event Superstar in the eyes of WWE brass or Vince McMahon himself, reports say.
According to Paul Davis of WrestlingNews.co, McMahon cannot see the value of Balor as a top star in the company, which is one of the reasons that Austin Theory defeated him in 6 minutes on this week’s episode of WWE RAW.
A source within WWE stated to Davis: “Yea, Finn was moved into the spot that Jeff Hardy had. He’s just there now to help get over the younger guys.
“There was a pitch to make him heel but that was weeks ago and I haven’t heard much about it since then. Vince never saw Finn as more than just a mid-card guy” the source revealed.
“Heyman would have pushed him to the moon but Vince just never saw it. Austin [Theory] is going to get time to shine in the Rumble match. Last I heard was he will be in the final 4 or 5 at the end of the match” the source concluded.
