WWE has announced that Seth Rollins and Finn Balor will have a segment during this week’s RAW episode about their SummerSlam match.
Next month, The Visionary will defend his World Heavyweight Championship against Balor at SummerSlam. They fought for the title at Money in the Bank, but Rollins defended it successfully.
WWE’s plans for Seth Rollins and Finn Balor
Finn Balor seeks revenge because he believes Rollins is responsible for what occurred in 2016. That year, he had to give up the Universal Championship less than 24 hours after winning it.
WWE just posted on Twitter that Seth Rollins and Finn Balor will sign a contract on Monday Night RAW to make their World Heavyweight Title match at SummerSlam official.

Will Finn Balor dethrone Rollins?
At Night of Champions, Rollins did something amazing. He became the very first World Heavyweight Champion by winning against AJ Styles in the tournament finals. On TV, he protected his title from Damian Priest, Bron Breakker, and Finn Balor.
In 2016, Balor had to give up the Universal Championship because he got hurt in his match with Seth Rollins at SummerSlam. He couldn’t compete for many months and hasn’t won a world title on the main roster since then. Now, Finn wants Rollins to experience what it’s like to lose a title that you were the first to win.

Finn Balor is not the only one who is after The Visionary. Damian Priest, who now has the Money in the Bank contract, can fight for the title whenever he wants, including before, during, or after Balor vs. Rollins at SummerSlam.
