Bray Wyatt vs. “The Demon King” Finn Balor
Finn Balor’s entrance is the sheer definition of epic…
Before this match, I was contemplating whether or not to change up my predictions page. I pegged Wyatt to win two weeks ago and then switched the winner to Finn Balor, but only in my mind. I was too lazy to change it, sorry.
Finn Balor is all decked out in Demon King garb/make-up. Bray Wyatt and Finn battle like titans. Wyatt seems primed for victory, but takes too long with his horror antics. Wyatt does a backwards crab-walk towards Balor, who pops up and takes out Wyatt. All hail the Demon King.

Both teams exchange big-time moves, but the champions are obviously dominating the majority of the match. “The Bar” looks like they’re going to put away Ambrose, but, out of nowhere, Rollins jumps in and takes out both men. Seth Rollins is crazy as f*ck in the ring. The Shield are champions again.
