WWE has a lot of options for Finn Balor after he beat Andrade clean at the WWE Super ShowDown. It might have been nice for Andrade to have won the title since his mother passed away hours after that match, but Balor is still the champion.
The IC Title could be ready for a new challenger and Shinsuke Nakamura might fit that bill. Because Balor vs Nakamura was the dark match after the blue brand and purple brand’s shows were done last night.
Why Balor vs Nakamura didn’t main event the television show is another story, but if they are hiding that match then they could be saving it for a bigger stage. With Summerslam coming up, Nakamura is due for a big match. Then again, so is his tag team partner Rusev.
You never know what WWE could be planning, but perhaps placing Nakamura vs Balor in a dark match for just the fans in attendance is a sign that they are preparing for something bigger down the line for those two former NJPW stars.
