Balor can be screwed out of the match but still look a million dollars. This allows a potential Balor-Brock Lesnar match to be saved for a bigger stage, but also again proving that The Demon King is championship caliber.

Balor can dominate the match by getting the advantage over all of his opponents. Every time he’s in trouble, the former Universal Champion counters and comes within inches of winning the match.
