Bully Ray Advocates Finn Balor's Victory Over Seth Rollins at WWE SummerSlam

As WWE SummerSlam approaches, anticipation is building for the high-stakes clash between Seth Rollins and Finn Balor, set to compete for the prestigious WWE World Heavyweight Championship. On a recent episode of "Busted Open," esteemed WWE Hall of Famer Bully Ray voiced his hopes for the match's outcome, drawing parallels to their encounter in 2016 and emphasizing the captivating internal story between Finn and Damian Priest.

When asked about his prediction for the match, Bully Ray expressed his desire to see Finn Balor emerge victorious. The WWE legend is particularly intrigued by the intricate dynamics between Finn Balor, Money in the Bank briefcase holder Damian Priest, and the challenges they pose for Dominik and Rhea in their efforts to keep them at bay.

For Bully Ray, Seth Rollins' initial reign as WWE World Heavyweight Champion appears to have reached its natural conclusion. His advocacy for Finn Balor is fueled by the captivating potential of the storyline with Priest and because he believes Seth's current reign has fallen short of expectations.

Seth's Reign Under Scrutiny

"He's not living up to the workhorse image they painted him to be," Bully remarked, acknowledging that it may still be early in Seth's reign. The WWE Hall of Famer has yet to be fully invested in Seth's title reign.

He feels Rollins hasn't defended the championship on television as frequently as befits a "workhorse" champion. Both Bully Ray and co-host Dave Lagreca find that Seth's theme music garners more attention than the champion himself.

Seth Rollins claimed the WWE World Heavyweight Championship at Night of Champions in Saudi Arabia in May, providing a focal point for WWE Superstars while the WWE Universal Championship remains tied up in the long-running and captivating Bloodline Civil War saga involving Roman Reigns and The Usos.

With WWE fans eagerly anticipating SummerSlam's high-octane encounter between Rollins and Balor, Bully Ray's insights as a respected industry veteran fuel the fiery debate surrounding the potential outcome. As Finn Balor and Seth Rollins step into the squared circle, the WWE Universe will be on the edge of their seats, eager to witness this crucial championship match unfolding.

Whether Balor can dethrone Rollins and bring an exciting twist to the title picture remains to be seen, but one thing is certain – SummerSlam 2023 is shaping up to be a must-watch event filled with gripping storytelling and electrifying action.
