1. Brock Lesnar Makes An Appearance

Brock Lesnar has made it clear that he likes to get the jump on his opponents.  Pretty much every superstar he’s tangled with since his return in 2012 has eaten an F-5 or twelve in the buildup to their eventual match.  Since the Fatal Five-Way is to determine his next number one contender to his Universal Championship, why waste time?

Heck, the next RAW PPV, Great Balls of Fire, is only about a month after Extreme Rules.  And although that’s the silliest name in the history of wrestling events (WCW’s Sin is a close second), it doesn’t take away from the fact that the winner of the match and Lesnar will only have four weeks to build to their clash.  And with Lesnar’s per diem schedule, that’s going to be difficult.

Not only is Balor winning is best for business, but he should certainly walk out victoriously.  It sets up a great narrative.  Lesnar just beat a guy for the Universal Championship who hadn’t wrestled in close to a decade after losing to him five months prior.  The two battled over a belt that Balor never lost, having injured himself at the 2016 SummerSlam in a title winning performance.  Lesnar is a guy that never wants to leave any doubts about his greatness and by destroying Finn he would he’d erase many.  Add that to the idea of The Club getting involved (purely speculation) and this could be a very fun weeks in June.
