Bengaluru, Nov 7: Finn Balor was supposed to be the face of the WWE Raw brand post-WWE Draft era. However, all the plans got ruined after he was injured at Summerslam at the hands of Seth Rollins. The powerbomb on the barricade dislocated his shoulder rotator calf sidelining him for several months.
Since then we have heard rumours of the Demon King’s return. Most of them suggested that he should return for the Royal Rumble PPV to claim his Universal title from Kevin Owens which he never lost in the first place. However, recent reports suggest that we might have the official date of return.
Finn has been advertised for the Roadblock PPV in the month December. This is going to be the final PPV of the year and is named WWE Roadblock: The End of the Line.
The Raw-exclusive PPV is scheduled to take place on December 18th, two weeks after the TLC PPV from Smackdown. The venue of the event is the PPG Paints arena in Pittsburgh, PA.
This advertisement does not confirm if he is going to wrestle on that night. The arena has already announced that Kevin Owens will square off against Roman Reigns in a Universal Championship match for the last PPV of the year.
The rumor mill already suggested about that champion vs. championship match taking place in near future. Reigns himself suggested that he will love to face the Universal champion, Kevin Owens for the prime title on Raw. Since Survivor Series is not done yet we will not receive any confirmation about the match, as of now.
Balor might come out as a surprise once the mentioned match his over and Owens retains his title. The crowd will go berserk to hear the Demon’s music, once again.
If he does return then it will be much earlier than expected. He was said to be out for at least five to six months. It will be interesting to see how WWE books him upon return.
