Backstage reaction to Kane beating Finn Balor on Raw

WWE is full of very questionable decisions but one very interesting one came when Finn Balor lost to Kane in definitive fashion the night after The Demon defeated AJ Styles at TLC.



Dave Meltzer brought this up on Wrestling Observer Radio and said that those he spoke to who usually defend just about every booking decision Vince McMahon makes even had no explanation as to why Finn Balor lost to Kane in such a way.

After three chokeslams Finn Balor laid down for a clean pinfall from Kane.

Meltzer questioned how WWE has such a deep roster of talent on Raw who could lose to Kane but for some reason, Finn Balor was chosen to take the fall. It gives way more merit to WWE’s usual 50/50 booking than most might realize. But in the end, it’s still a rather questionable decision.

Balor is penciled in to possibly face Brock Lesnar at the Royal Rumble for the Universal Title as well which makes this creative decision even more questionable.

Let’s see how this one plays out because it happened in the midst of a SmackDown Invasion angle, but even with Raw under siege, it was still a very unusual choice.
