The latest episode of WWE Raw took place in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania on Monday, March 11. Let’s take a look at five Superstars who gained and lost momentum during the show…
#5 Lost: Finn Balor
Finn Balor became the inaugural winner of the Universal Championship when he defeated Seth Rollins for the title at SummerSlam 2016. Following a two-and-a-half-year wait, the Irishman finally got his hands on another title in WWE, the Intercontinental Championship, when he pinned Lio Rush in a handicap match at Elimination Chamber in February to win the title from Bobby Lashley.
Now, just 22 days into what fans were hoping would be a memorable reign for Balor, he has already lost the Intercontinental Championship after shenanigans from Rush helped Lashley reclaim the title in a one-on-one match on this week’s Raw.
The hot-potato championship has now changed hands every month for the last four months, with Dean Ambrose, Lashley and Balor all having forgettable reigns with a title that is beginning to lose its meaning again.
