2. Finn Balor Becomes No. Contender

Before I tell you why Finn Balor should be the next in line for Brock Lesnar and the Universal Championship, let me start by saying why his 4 opponents in the Fatal 5-Way Extreme Rules match on June 4th should not be.  First off, Bray Wyatt.  Bray just a seems a little off right now.  Since his move to RAW things just haven’t clicked for “The Eater of Worlds” and considering he just a brief title run on Smackdown Live, he’s not going to win.  Seth Rollins and Samoa Joe have unfinished business that needs to be resolved and I believe will happen at the next PPV.  So they’re out.  And Roman Reigns?  No.  Please, no.  Roman needs to stay on his break from the world title scene until the WWE finds a way for him to make a 100% heel turn.
