Welcome back! The big WWE story of the week is the return of fans to events, as WWE is back on the road for the first time in over fifteen months. It is an amazing thing to see and something that is far overdue. WWE has more attention and possibilities than they have had in a very long time now and it would make sense to capitalize on it. They might have done just that on Friday.
This week on SmackDown, Finn Balor made his return to WWE television, interrupting Sami Zayn and laying him out. This is Balor’s first appearance on a main roster show since 2019, as he spent over a year and a half in NXT. Balor is a former Universal Champion and a former two time NXT Champion. There is no word on when he will be having his next match on SmackDown.
This could be big. Check out what is coming to SmackDown:
Opinion: That is the kind of return that you need on a show like this and it worked very well. Balor is someone who is going to get the energy going in a hurry and just putting him in front of the crowd is a boost. Having him beat up Zayn in a hurry was the right call too as anyone can enjoy seeing him getting taken down. It was a great moment and smart move for once so well done.
What do you expect from Balor? How can he be best used? Let us know in the comments below.
